Philosophy of Education
In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEAM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.
STEAM is our educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
STEAM-based program takes an integrated approach to learning and teaching, which requires an intentional connection between curriculum learning objectives, standards, assessments, and lesson design/implementation. Few of the most significant benefits of the STEAM Education are:
- Prepares children for upcoming technological innovations:
- Enhances problem-solving skills:
- Greater understanding of concepts:
- Instills creativity and innovation:
- Teaches Teamwork, collaboration, and communication:
- Encourages Risk Taking:
- Complete Process Learning:
- Builds Perseverance and Determination:
- Fosters a love of learning
STEAM American International School offers one of the highest standards of international education to students in Sweden. Our blend of American (US) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs offer students opportunities to graduate with US and IB Diplomas. Our school suits learners looking for a US school in Sweden and those looking for an international school.
Students are taught a number of different methods and techniques that allow them to understand, comprehend, analyze and solve problems, and then communicate their findings and responses.
We believe that the diversity of our student-body provides the foundation for creating involved global citizens; and building an inclusive and caring community is integral to our work. As we develop each child’s personal feelings of safety, competence and self-worth, we emphasize the development of caring and respectful attitudes towards others.
Our students require knowledge and skills that will help them compete in a global economy and allow them to lead lives of integrity and satisfaction, both as citizens and individuals.
Reporting based on the curriculum, helps parents to have a clear understanding of their child’s progress.
