We are experiencing a more dramatic change in society than ever.
How does one find our own thought and go forward?
Our “Global Standard Education” allows students to cultivate 5 specific capabilities: the English language as an international common language,
the communication capability with which to express your own thoughts,
the ability to understand science, ICT literacy, and extensive thinking skills based on knowledge and competencies.
Our interactive focus of education aims to assist the students’ thinking ability across all subjects. The teacher presents a “trigger question”, which looks to stimulate the students’ intellectual interests. Taking this approach, we want to move away from the conventional one-way style of delivering education. Looking to answer “Why?” motivates the students to actively think and discuss in each class.
At MITA International School, students have many opportunities to communicate in English, which helps them to gain a level of expertise in English as well as many other key skills. Such opportunities are placed not only in English classes, but also with English-speaking teachers in active learning scenarios. Also, we have an “International Class” in junior high school where the immersion program is set, and the “Super English Course” in senior high school taking into consideration entrance into higher educational establishments overseas.
Science literacy, developing the students’ sense of understanding and the future of technology, are some of the most important matters to take into consideration to survive in the age to come. MITA International School focuses on science education not only in the “Super Science Course” but in the other areas of the curriculum. Encouraging classes where the students conduct experiments lets them acquire a logical way of thinking, and develop scientific perspectives.
Students at MITA International School all receive an iPad to support their learning. Having instant access to unlimited information from the Internet in every lesson as well as familiarizing themselves with ICT skills not only means that the students learn effective researching skills but also develop many new ways to interactively take part in lessons and communicate with teachers.
Identifying the students’ basic academic capabilities, we aim to develop their linguistic communication and thinking skills. Learning systems that we have in place include the “r-Test”. This encourages the students themselves to confirm their level of understanding and helps to highlight areas for development. In addition, our teachers continuously monitor the learning achievements of each student and conduct follow-up classes and additional workshops. The teachers are always eager to assist the students to move forward without any questions left unsolved and to project their learning further.
To develop the unlimited potentials and create a positive and exciting learning environment, our teaching staff are always looking to learn and evolve by dedicating themselves to research effective educational methods and sharing this knowledge with other teachers not only in their own subject areas but with teachers throughout the school.
