ICE's Educational Philosophy

ICE

New Perspective to Learning

Our desire is to instill within our students, not only an inherent love for learning but also provide a safe space, wherein they can explore their curiosities and offer their thoughts for reflection.

Our aim is far more than just the provision of an education. We inspire students to apply their knowledge, derived from the deep understanding of their subjects, as they develop and enhance skill sets and key strengths. Committed to offering a unique learning approach for our students, we have built and shaped a curriculum that ignites the youth’s passion for learning by combining international curriculums and methodologies that incorporate academic excellence as well as practical learning.

Education:

• Education is the creation of an environment which stimulates the student’s desire to dig for information and knowledge.

• Education excites human intelligence.

• Education is the gathering of knowledge from formal and informal sources.

• Education is experiential learning.

Schooling

• Focus is on ensuring that students pursue and achieve high marks.

• Schooling significantly disregards the various natural intelligence, and natural potential of individual students.

• Schooling provides only rote learning.
