Vision for Learning

Our Vision for Learning

At Vision International School all students will be provided with a rigorous and relevant educational path to support individual development at the highest levels. This will be accomplished through the experiential, problem-based approach in which we make content and skills standards come to life for students by connecting learning to relevant issues, their specific learning needs, and authentic audiences. Academic content is charged with rigor through the curricular structures of learning expeditions, case studies, projects, fieldwork, engagement with community experts, service learning, and exhibitions of student work.

The elements of our curriculum are approved by the Ministry of Education of Qatar.  Together they form a curriculum vision and approach known as Expeditionary Learning.  We apply this approach to immerse students in the culture, history, geography, language, and arts of the host region.  We provide multiple ways for students to express their personal learning style and show what they know and are able to do through authentic assessments coupled with research-based differentiated and individualized instructional practices.

Our foundational theories are consistent with our principles of learning and designed to create independent learners with personal integrity, intellectual character, and interdependent community leadership skills. These skills are accomplished through integration of the following new Bloom's Taxonomy and strategies:

  • The Digital Bloom's Taxonomy for development of sequential higher order and critical thinking
  • Constructivist learning theory for all staff and students to provide a safe and respectful learning environment
  • Creative and critical thinking for balanced child development across the disciplines
  • Developmentally appropriate instruction to provide learning ladders for the early years
  • Thinking Maps as the mental construct for organization of learning new material
  • Integration of the arts in units of study
  • Writing and reading across the content areas
  • Vocabulary proficiency in the content areas for career path support
  • Career preparation and mentorship opportunities
  • Use of technology across the curriculum to support information literacy
  • Parents as partners throughout their child's learning experience
