At UNISUS, the pursuit of academic excellence is seamlessly integrated with a distinctive approach to education, setting the stage for students to thrive in an ever-evolving global landscape.
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, UNISUS is dedicated to nurturing well-rounded individuals who possess both a solid academic foundation and a deep understanding of the world around them. What sets UNISUS apart is the seamless fusion of its three pillars - Outdoor Education, Technology and Innovation, and Entrepreneurship - into the IB curriculum, creating a transformative learning journey.
Here are some other ways in which UNISUS is leading the way in terms of academics:
- Class Size
- Differentiating Instruction
The Class Size Difference: Why It Matters
Within our exceptional educational framework, UNISUS recognizes the paramount importance of personalized attention which can only come with a smaller class size.
With a commitment to ensuring optimal learning conditions, the school maintains a deliberate focus on class sizes, keeping students below 22 within any given class. This deliberate choice cultivates an environment where every student receives individualized support and engagement from educators, fostering a meaningful and personalized educational experience.
This also means that teachers can identify and help students who need extra support in a subject, and they can also identify students who are excelling beyond the subject material and provide them with further instruction/lessons to continue to grow and learn.
Perhaps this is why our average grade is a 5.24.
For reference, the World IB grade average, which is still quite high, is a 4.83.
How We Succeed at Differentiating Instruction
Central to this individualized approach is differentiated instruction, which thrives in the intimate class sizes at UNISUS. With fewer students in each class, educators can tailor their teaching methods to suit diverse learning styles and preferences. This personalized approach not only enriches students' understanding but also ignites their passion for learning.
In such an environment, identifying students' strengths and challenges becomes more seamless. This personalized insight allows teachers to adapt their strategies creatively, catering to various learning preferences and needs.
Whether through interactive projects, multimedia elements, or collaborative discussions, educators can engage every type of learner effectively.
UNISUS' emphasis on smaller class sizes magnifies the impact of differentiated instruction, nurturing students' passion for learning within a tailored framework.
In essence, UNISUS represents more than just an educational institution; it's a holistic journey that seamlessly integrates academic rigor, personalized attention, global perspectives, and practical experiences. As students navigate their educational path, they're immersed in an environment that equips them not only with knowledge but also with the skills and character needed to thrive in a dynamic world.
