ACADEMICS

Our course of study is firmly grounded in the IB framework, integrating Foss Science, Singapore Math, and a dual immersion Spanish program. We ignite the passion for learning in our students by nurturing critical thinking, fostering intellectual curiosity, and nurturing global citizens. Following the principles of IB World Schools, our learning communities engage in cycles of inquiry, action, and reflection, promoting deep understanding and a lifelong love for learning.

International Baccalaureate Candidate

The IB Primary Years Program (PYP) is a dynamic, inquiry-based educational framework designed for young learners aged 3 to 12. It emphasizes holistic development, encouraging students to explore and understand the world around them through inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving. The PYP nurtures not only academic skills but also social, emotional, and cultural awareness. Students engage in transdisciplinary learning experiences, connecting various subject areas and real-world contexts.

At its core, the PYP aims to inspire lifelong learners who are globally-minded, compassionate, and ready to contribute positively to our diverse world.

FOSS Science

FOSS (Full Option Science System) is a research-based science curriculum for grades K-8 developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California, Berkeley. FOSS has evolved from a philosophy of teaching and learning that has guided the development of successful active-learning science curricula for more than 40 years. The FOSS Program bridges research and practice by providing tools and strategies to engage students and teachers in enduring experiences that lead to deeper understanding of the natural and designed worlds.

Singapore Math

Singapore Math is a method of learning that uses three distinct approaches to understanding mathematical concepts and problem-solving. It uses the concrete to pictorial to abstract approach and encourages students to actively think, understand, and communicate to solve math problems. Singapore consistently ranks at the top in international math testing.

Hands On Learning

Our approach goes beyond traditional lectures, as we believe that true understanding and mastery emerge when students actively engage with the subject matter.

 

Through hands-on activities, students become participants in their own education, diving into the material to solve challenges and create meaningful projects. Whether it's building a model, conducting experiments, or crafting an artistic masterpiece, hands-on learning immerses students in the learning process.

Socio Emotional Learning

Social and emotional learning (SEL) has a remarkable impact on students' lives, fostering academic success, improved behavior, emotional well-being, and positive social interactions. Research shows that developing strong social and emotional skills enhances academic performance, boosting achievement scores by about 11 percentile points.

Students engaged in SEL display fewer behavioral problems, with long-term benefits that persist even into adulthood. SEL equips students with the tools to manage emotions, preventing issues like depression, anxiety, and stress. Positive social behavior flourishes as students learn essential skills for healthy relationships with peers, parents, and teachers. By embracing SEL, students are not only better prepared for academic challenges but also empowered to succeed beyond the classroom, taking on life's opportunities with confidence.

A Note on Testing

At Intiwasi, we are proud to exceed state standards in our academic approach. While we do not require our students to take state-mandated assessments as a private school, we believe that our rigorous curriculum and comprehensive instruction will prepare our students to succeed on any standardized test. Our curriculum is designed to challenge and inspire our students to reach their full potential, and we believe that this will equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel on any standardized test they may encounter in the future.
