The Yangon International School elementary division provides a strong, standards-based program grounded in research-based practice for curriculum, assessment and instruction. The standards-based program is supported by teachers through engagement in collaborative practices that are data-driven and focused on student learning. We believe that elementary school should be a stimulating, engaging, and appropriately challenging experience for all children. It is a time for children to develop social skills, build strong friendships, discover new subjects and special interests. Our goal is to provide academic excellence and promote the love of learning. We are committed to providing a rigorous, structured, world class program to prepare our students for future success.
We are pleased to present this brief overview of our pre-school through grade five comprehensive program. Our curriculum provides a standards-based education that engages our young learners in a variety of educational experiences. Our teachers differentiate instruction to meet each child’s learning needs, academic levels, and interests. In most cases, instruction is provided by both a classroom teacher and a teaching assistant through a variety of flexible grouping and instructional strategies. Students are encouraged to reach their full potential in all academic and specialist areas.
At the elementary level, we provide a balanced education that includes reading, and English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, physical education, media/library, Information Technology, Myanmar studies, Myanmar dance, and music. Our standards based curriculum is supported by current educational resources and materials. Field trips, after school activities, and enrichment programs complement and extend classroom learning.
