At SSB, we follow a strict learning cycle for the organization of our studies.
We have four periods each year.Each period begins with a concrete introduction to the learning goals to fully understand what is expected of them. The period ends with a thorough assessment of the student’s academic progress both by the teacher and the student themselves.That assessment then feeds into the planning for the next period and so on. In addition, every teacher completes a written assessment for every student on schoolsoft so that the parents can also monitor the progress.
Social development is also monitored through our learning cycle with a series of required forms for the student to complete throughout the school year. The feedback we receive on these forms helps us guide each student and make appropriate changes along the way to offer every student the best possible learning environment.
