High Quality Teaching & Learning

High-quality learning is an engaging and challenging process stemming from our natural curiosity. It builds on the learners’ prior knowledge and experiences in order to transport them from the known to the new. It occurs in a safe and supportive environment that facilitates academic, social and emotional growth, stimulating and empowering learners to become active participants in their own learning. It is a transdisciplinary journey that requires differentiation and ownership while allowing all stakeholders to develop a greater level of skill, knowledge and understanding.

What makes us different ?

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

To understand and manage emotions, our students are immersed in social- emotional learning programs and curricula throughout their studies. Social-emotional learning enhances one’s self-awareness,
self-management, decision-making and resilience from Early Childhood to Lower & Upper Elementary School and to Middle & High School.

Low student teacher ratio

Low Student – Teacher Ratio

Verita classes have an impressively low student-teacher ratio of 1:9. Small class size and our inspiring and highly qualified teaching faculty ensure that students get independent attention and tailor-made differentiated support from Nursery, Kindergarten, and up to Primary & Secondary.

Service learning projects

Service Learning Projects

Verita students must participate in meaningful community service which exposes them to active engagement within communities or environments in need. Using curriculum objectives and innovative approaches our students work on real-world problems.

Inquiry based learning

Inquiry-Based Learning

A teaching approach that builds on the idea that educators and students both share responsibility for learning. Students’ questions, ideas and observations are at the centre of the learning experience. Inquiry methodologies require students to engage in evidence-based reasoning, learning by doing and creative problem-solving.

Well-being

Well-Being

Verita actively builds internal programs that promote student and staff wellbeing. We ensure a space where students feel physically and emotionally safe with a caring adult looking after the progress and acting as an advocate for each child. Most importantly, we ensure that kindness is the centre of everything we do.

student agency

Student Agency

It boils down to creating skills in students where they build their own self-directed learning abilities and strategies which allow them to develop a higher degree of autonomy and self-mastery. Student agency is ‘The ability of students to act independently within a given environment and assume an amount of control and empowerment”

Our Head of School, TEDx Speaker on Compassion in Education

Head of School, and Social Emotional and Ethical (SEE) Learning Facilitator, Lila Vasilescu has been invited as a TEDx speaker that had education as a central theme. Not by chance, her speech at the prestigious conference focused on compassion in education, a great virtue often misunderstood. But also on self-compassion, a value unknown to many of us. We invite you to open your minds and hearts and step into the realm generously shaped by Lila through her inspired discourse.

Our Philosophy

Our approach to curriculum makes standards come alive for students by connecting learning to real-world issues and needs. Verita ensures that all students meet rigorous curriculum objectives and standards while in parallel providing exciting learning opportunities. Units of learning, real-life case studies, projects, fieldwork, and service-learning inspire students to think and work as professionals do, contributing high-quality work that is presented to audiences beyond the classroom.

We believe that through enquiry, active learning, and the development of emotional intelligence in a safe environment, all students are capable of mastery of knowledge, skills and understanding.

Road Map

 Three Stages, One School

At Verita International School, students move seamlessly through three stages of discovery, from Early Years to a Secondary School diploma. Many parents and students have aspirations of admissions to overseas universities, so we have selected curriculums with preuniversity international programmes that are widely recognised globally: IGCSE  Accreditation for Year 10 & 11 and IB School accredited for the Diploma Program for Years 12 & 13.

Our well-rounded, globally benchmarked curriculum is designed to inspire mastery and excellence. By challenging and equipping students with deep knowledge, skills, and understanding we’re helping them become more confident in their intellectual abilities. Ultimately, the VIS course of study prepares students to be participants, not spectators, in the dynamic, exciting, and unpredictable world of the 21st century.
