    We believe that an excellent education involves building the resilience, capacity, happiness, and potential of your child within a dynamic, innovative, and engaging learning environment. Well-being is at the forefront of our thinking. Most parents want their children to learn well to be happy and confident, resilient, and respectful to feel engaged and cared for in everything they do.

    At the same time, parents want their children to learn to reach their full potential as independent, inquisitive learners, learn how to learn and think, and achieve their personal and academic goals. Parents want their children to be taught by great teachers who inspire imagination and passion for learning, who use the very best teaching methods, structures, and tools, and remain committed to best practice and improvement and their school values.

    At Scots, we bring together these three areas to create an incredible educational journey and outcome for your child. We also take a ‘high challenge’ approach to education. This means providing our students with the knowledge and skills, which help them to manage and thrive when faced with challenges and opportunities outside their comfort zones. It means encouraging students to work with their strengths, weaknesses, and passions in real-world contexts.

    Scots also emphasize the importance of equipping students with the personal and interpersonal skills that benefit themselves and their communities. We empower our students to make a positive impact on others and their world. Through our educational model of Life, Learning, and Leading, we develop World Ready citizens. When you walk through our school or talk to our community members, you will find many fine examples of our educational philosophies and practices in action, which we believe is an education worth having. Our values are Scots students strive to be:

    • Learners demonstrate empathy and concern for others without judging them. They understand the motivations and pressures which impact others, and they have insight into their own emotions and behaviors.
    • Students respond positively when things do not go as expected and adapt to changed circumstances. They can tap into inner resources and reach out to external support.
    • Learners think and act within an ethical framework and are con dent to make decisions and be accountable.
    • Learners think beyond constraints and boundaries to connect ideas and envision a myriad of possibilities. They freely and fluently express ideas and thoughts through different mediums.
    • Learners inquire about the world and the life they live in. They seek knowledge and challenges that transform learning and personal growth.
    • Learners develop inner resources and seek solutions to unknown problems. They are effective collaborators who build connections and value relationships.
    • Learners recognize their strengths and needs and accept one another. They explore differences and diversity and contribute to healthy communities.
    • Learners take risks for the right reasons and put aside self-interest where necessary. They identify opportunities and innovate for transformative change.
    • Learners communicate confidently and fluently across a broad register of media, situations, and audiences. They are active listeners and expressive speakers who exert positive influence.
