In order to prepare students to collaborate and contribute in a positive and productive manner, SNA provides a student-centered learning environment that emphasizes the key indicators of leadership, effective communication, civic responsibility, critical thinking and risk taking. Through its curriculum, staff and wider school community, SNA aims to inspire and develop its students so they are able to respond to the continuing challenges in our world.
The International Schools of North America is committed to its vision of using student learning as the foundation for everything we do within our school community.
At SNA we strive to empower our students with the skills, values, and knowledge that enable them to believe in their capacity to lead, walk their own path, and know how it feels to learn, discover, and experience. The IB learner profile attributes are the mirror image of our educational beliefs and values. Therefore, they are the central part of all our teaching and learning practices.
Being an IB school, we strive to provide high quality education to all learners whose needs we can accommodate. We do not discriminate against individuals based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational, admissions or employment policies.
SNA does consider factors including student’s prior academic performance, possible inclusion accommodations, and linguistic background for purposes of admission. We seek the possibility of providing students with what they need to fulfil the academic objectives of a school with English as the language of instruction.
