Objective

ala dancingOur main objective is to build up the name of the International School of Siem Reap upon its chosen education programme of the British National Curriculum giving a quality assurance to the local community that Khmer children can have access to knowledge and life skills alongside "western" children in an equal opportunity environment to become Siem Reap's foremost educational establishment for children and youth.

This will be done while adhering to internationally accepted academic standards by providing children of all backgrounds a safe and healthy learning environment in which class-sizes will not exceed 15-20 pupils. Social skills will play an important role in our school where parents can be assured their children are in capable, caring hands.

Traditional education focuses on teaching, not learning. It incorrectly assumes that for every ounce of teaching there is an ounce of learning by those who are taught. However, most of what we learn before, during, and after attending schools is learned without its being taught to us. A child learns such fundamental things as how to walk, talk, eat, dress, and so on without being taught these things. Adults learn most of what they use at work or at leisure while at work or leisure. Most of what is taught in classroom settings is forgotten, and much or what is remembered is irrelevant.

Attention will be given to resourcing our classes with internationally sourced books to optimally support development of children's knowledge and understanding while under the guidance of professional expatriate teachers.
