Learning Today. Changing the World Tomorrow.
The educational philosophy at RIS is based on a high impact, holistic education programme called MultiSmart LearningTM – developed by Fortes Education's pedagogues – that unlocks multiple pathways to learning and all-round development.
Students are given a myriad of opportunities - in and out of the classroom, through academic study and extra-curricular activities, through personalised instruction and group learning - to develop their ‘core’ and ‘cognitive skills’ which include the ability to apply knowledge, think creatively, express oneself, persevere, work with others, and most importantly learn, as well as and ‘multiple intelligences’, in particular, Linguistic, Mathematic, Kinesthetic, Visual, Musical, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal abilities as well as Human Values.
Our MultiSmart LearningTM programme is embedded throughout our curriculum. Every class and activity at RIS is designed to enhance a skill-set so students develop all eight multiple intelligences.
- Critical & Creative Thinking:
The ability to apply knowledge, analyse information, challenge assumptions, solve problems, reach conclusions, and think imaginatively.
The ability to express oneself in oral and written form, discuss, reason and engage in dialogue, and communicate articulately.
- Working with Others:The development of personal and social skills enabling one to work with others, achieve collective goals, and resolve differences.
