Excitement buzzes throughout our Elementary School. At GISC, we foster curiosity and encourage our students to explore and research the answers to their own questions. Our classrooms are student-centered. Teachers give students opportunities to lead learning activities, participate more actively in discussions, design their own learning projects, explore topics that interest them, and generally contribute to the design of their own course of study. We promote student agency, whereby our students joyfully become the architects of their own learning, and our teachers become guides to help students stay on track. The students’ voices, their experiences, their cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and their passions are valued and contribute to a rich and exciting learning atmosphere.
