College & University
ISK provides high school student to qualify for an American High School Diploma which is accredited by the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC) to better prepare students for college and university admissions across the globe.
Students undergo an intensive learning program targeting key subjects including English to better prepare them for University admissions, assessments such as SATs with an option to enroll in Advanced Placement subjects which can be transferred to the enrolled University or Colleges.
At the end of each semester, one half (.5) credit is given for the successful completion of each course. All courses continue from semester 1 to semester 2 and upon successful completion these will be given one (1.0) credit for the year. To move from one grade in the high school to the next, a student must earn a minimum number of credits.
Student performance levels are assessed and graded in a variety of ways including through projects, class work, presentations, tests, quizzes, assignments and various other methods, which will all be graded and factored into their Grade Point Averages (GPAs). The various instructional methods employed by teachers are designed to progressively evaluate the students’ academic development and encourage learning and understanding through critical thinking and application of learned knowledge rather than rote learning.
ISK has adopted the College Board College and Career Readiness Pathway assessments. The series of assessment consist of PSAT 8/9 (8th to 9th grade), PSAT/NMSQT (10th to 11th grade) and SAT (11th to 12th grade). These integrated assessments measure a student’s college and career readiness from the eighth through 12th grades.
