This post is brought to you by Oasis International School.
Located on a beautiful 12-acre campus in Bandar Rimbayu, Selangor, Oasis International School is one of the newest U.S. curriculum-based international schools in the greater Kuala Lumpur area. OIS is committed to delivering high quality learning to all students in every circumstance, especially demonstrated with the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary move to seamless remote learning. OIS teachers interact with their students as individuals, and classmates build friendships that last a lifetime.
Oasis schools strive to instil in each student a passion for truth, a commitment to excellence, and an appreciation for diversity. To accomplish that mission, OIS provides a U.S. education experience that cultivates character, leadership, and innovation. The OIS goal is for students to learn how to positively impact their school, community, nation, and world; appreciate the unique qualities of the diverse world and celebrate shared values; express an intrinsic desire for learning in and beyond the classroom; and pursue creativity and originality in their work and life.
OIS provides a rewarding educational experience for your child by using the U.S. model framework. The United States education system is successful because of its commitment in cultivating qualified and caring teachers, offering a personalized learning experience, educating using a holistic approach, and appreciating diversity. OIS offers an innovative academic model of teaching and learning with classes that are rooted in content and skills that align with standards. The standards are designed to challenge students academically as well as to encourage them to think critically and demonstrate creativity.
Building 21st century learning skills is accomplished with the help of technology. OIS engages technology as a fundamental part of the learning process and ensures every student on campus has access to at least one personal Apple device. Elementary and middle school students have iPads and access to the computer lab. High school students have iPads and Macbooks. Teachers are also equipped with Apple devices and every classroom is equipped with an Apple TV that allows teachers to display instructional materials and student work. Additionally, every classroom teacher is an Apple Teacher and a Google Certified Educator. With these tools and training, teachers are better able to support students and help them take ownership of their learning. When OIS was faced with COVID-19 contingency planning because of movement control orders, the transition to remote learning was carried out seamlessly; this strong foundation of learning with technology was the reason why.
All children aren’t the same and all children don’t learn the same. Therefore, OIS teachers strive to differentiate instruction in their classes, and the flexible learning environment helps to facilitate different styles of teaching and learning.
