At ISC RAK, teachers follow a unique teaching pedagogy that is usually practised in SABIS Schools. Class-based teaching is mostly followed to cover the syllabus. The courses for all standards are structured. Thus, both teachers and students are aware of the expectations. Teachers teach one subject at a time using the SABIS Point System. Moreover, different learning techniques are followed to ensure that students remain on track. These approaches are:

  • Oral work
  • Individual work
  • Group work

The SABIS Curriculum allows teachers to focus on less able students. Students that are behind the required level of understanding of a topic are motivated, advised, coached and helped. The school provides further help if required.

Teachers track the performance of students via SABIS AMS – a computerised performance tracking method to identify gaps in students’ understanding. Students are assessed throughout the year and informed when a gap is identified. In this way, the school attempts to bridge the learning gap within time.

The learning process at ISC RAK is based on three steps:

Teaching is the first step of the learning process in which teachers deliver a lecture based on certain learning outcomes. For this purpose, SABIS-based textbooks are followed. In the second stage – testing and monitoring, teachers ask students to demonstrate their understanding of a topic via written assessment. This is followed by the third stage – students’ follow up which deals with peer reviews and teachers’ feedback.
