Welcome to Summa International Schools blog!

"We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it's an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish." - Sir Ken Robinson

Our Core Beliefs:

  • All children can learn, regardless of their socio-economic status.

  • An authentic culture of achievement drives an authentic community.

  • Teaching is an art that can be learned, mastered, and compensated accordingly. 

  • Differentiation is good for everyone. 

  • School-wide personalized learning has a high return on investment when implemented with skill and fidelity.

  • Great leaders are first great teachers.
