Pursing Passions and Wellbeing
At the heart of the ISK co-curricular program is an opportunity for students to pursue their passions and wellbeing. While classroom learning supports students’ academic pursuits, learning experiences offered through ISK’s co-curricular program help students learn more deeply about themselves and the world around them through the lens of ISK’s Mission, Vision, and Educational Aims. This alignment ensures students have the knowledge and skills to take responsibility for their lives, address life’s challenges, become responsible global citizens, and to be creators of knowledge. Our student-driven and student-led programs operate in three main strands: academic, creative, and physical, social & emotional wellness.
Our Co-Curricular Program Aims to:
Develop individuals who are globally-minded students who actively learn, create, solve and engage in the world. We empower students to create solutions for tomorrow's challenges.
ISK offers a broad range of programs and support to this age group: academic, creative, social, and physical & emotional wellness.
All curricular and co-curricular programs in the high school aim to fulfill the ISK Mission, Vision, and Educational Aims. In order to prepare high school students for a rapidly changing world, we provide them with the knowledge and skills they need to take responsibility for their lives, address life's challenges, become responsible citizens, and to be creators of knowledge.
We recognize that students have different needs and learning styles and teachers work to ensure that the delivery of the academic and non-academic programs allow each student to be successful.
ISK is a Proud Round Square School
Round Square schools share a passion for experiential learning. Together, we work hard to ensure that our students have every opportunity to achieve levels beyond their perceived limits. We also believe that in order to prepare for adult life, young people must be encouraged to discover and embrace the similarities and differences between cultures and nationalities in ways that promote meaningful and lasting understanding, tolerance and respect.
The Round Square approach does not focus on what is taught but rather how learning takes place. It recognizes that learning is most effective when it is practical, cross-cultural and collaborative, and when it is infused through a broad spectrum of co-curricular activities.
Hand Out is a project led by a group of ISK students who use 3D printing technologies to create mechanical prosthetic hands for individuals who need them in underprivileged communities. The club is part of a larger global network known as Enabling the Future (ENABLE). Member groups of this network, which are set up in different locations worldwide, are known as chapters. In early 2017, ISK students 3D-printed our first prototype prosthetic hand and shared it with engineers at ENABLE, resulting in our club becoming the first and currently only ENABLE chapter in East Africa.
Within the school year, students will be required to do activities centered around creativity, culture, leadership and action (sport).
Middle Schoolers are encouraged to get involved in athletics, activities, service learning, the arts and leadership.
High School students will follow the ISK CASL program to initiate and reflect upon sustainable community projects that are mutually beneficial.
