Our Teaching Philosophy
Our teaching philosophy is to inspire students to love learning, build knowledge together with their teachers, apply it in real-life predictable and unpredictable contexts, and experiment with it. In our teaching, knowledge is the means and competency is the end result.
Our curriculum is the competency-based curriculum that aims to cultivate school graduates (known as ADAlilar) who are able to confidently communicate in English in social, cultural, and academic contexts while also being competent in the national language of Azerbaijan and at least one foreign language; who propose creative solutions to local and global problems of the world drawing on their knowledge of history, geography, language, and culture; who are fluent in science and technology, and can collect, synthesize and quantitatively analyze and interpret information to draw conclusions on physical and natural world. The subjects offered in the School curriculum serve the above purpose from six perspectives.
