A great school helps students to develop qualities as learners and leaders that will serve them well throughout their adult lives such as: resilience, empathy, creativity, commitment, adaptability, self-confidence and humility. A great school helps students to acquire transferable skills like teamwork, analysis, problem-solving, effective communication, evaluation, active listening, reflection and research; and, just as importantly, it helps students to shape and consolidate core values such as tolerance, integrity, altruism and hard work. KISU is such a school.
