As an international school, Create Schools has a unique philosophy regarding education. To determine what we should be teaching our students today, we look to the future.
Our educational system is not tethered to the past as are many international schools. We are very aware of the rapid changes that are occurring in our students' lives on a daily basis. Therefore, we ensure that our students are prepared for the challenges of the future by keeping a close eye on what is happening in
We place a great deal of emphasis on educating the whole child, which includes the social-emotional as well as academic development of each student. Our small classes allow teachers to develop exceptional relationships with students, ensuring that their well-being is of the utmost importance. Learning is only possible when the environment is conducive to learning.
As part of our educational program, we aim to equip our students with the essential competencies they will need for the future. As facts are only a mouse click away, pure knowledge is no longer the only element of education. It is also of great importance that students are able to determine which information is relevant, reliable, and leads to the desired result. Critical thinking is inherent throughout our curriculums. Our goal is to provide our students with internationally recognized degrees, but also to equip them with the following skills.
As Create is a school for the future, we know that sustainability is a key element to a healthy future. This is why we have made sustainability a core element of our education program. We are very happy that this has been recognized with the ‘European Sustainable School Award’.
Students' futures are at the center of our school model. We include English, ICT (Information and Communication Technology), and Problem Solving into our curriculum.
From First Grade onwards, we offer instruction in both English and German
The use of information technology is a part of our daily lives and therefore a part of our educational program. From the first grade onward, we begin using tablets for one or two lessons each week. Students use the tablets to access educational programs and learn how to use media safely and sensibly. By the time students reach high school, they will be working digitally in groups, sharing documents, writing emails, and participating in video chats on their laptops.
This is one of the reasons why a seamless transition to online lessons is possible.
We primarily use real-life issues as the basis for our lessons as this makes the lessons relevant and current. Students are more engaged when they can relate their learning to real life. Project based learning is intergrated into the curriculum for all grades.
As our emphasis is on depth of learning, therefore we do not only use marks and tests to assess our students. We use a number of different ways to assess our students to ensure we are getting a true reflection of their learning.
We focus on the individual students, therefore we look at students' learning styles and how they learn best.
As all research has now started to show, starting later is best for students, that is why our students start at 10am (and have been doing so since we started).
It is important to us that no child is overlooked. Every child is an individual and deserves to be supported as such.
Classes and Mentors
Our classes have a maximum of twelve to fourteen students.
The all-day schedule allows us enough time to explore subjects in a creative, innovative, and in-depth manner
Each class has a mentor teacher that stays with them. We also have a student "Buddy Program" where older students assist younger students.
