The basic objectives of the British International School and Montessori are to provide a quality nursery, preschool through primary school education for all children aged 14 months to 12 years using the Montessori approach as the primary medium and the Cambridge International Examinations curriculum as the secondary medium. The basic goal can be subdivided into three conceptual categories; Spiritual, Intellectual and Social. The Spiritual Objective of the British International School and Montessori is to encourage children to strive towards a high moral standard of showing love and concern for all and everyone that they meet in their daily life. Our goal is to encourage each child to understand the meaning of responsibilities and respect towards each other, parents, teachers, others and the environment. The Intellectual Objective is to develop each child's intellectual and creative potential to the fullest. Our goal is to guide the children through an academic curriculum and programme that will provide them the necessary skills to function as a contributing member of society. The learning atmosphere will balance work and play, thereby helping the children to like what they are learning and create a hunger for more learning. This will also give them self esteem as they realise their abilities and strengths. The Social Objective is to model the children's interaction towards one another with courtesy, graciousness, and gratitude. We will create co-operation rather than competition. Our goal is to foster unity among staff, pupils, parents, friends, and other family members.
