goals support LWIS Hazmieh’s philosophy, purpose and direction.
ARE ALL COMMITTED TO
THE JOY OF LEARNING
We aim to help every learner feel intrinsically motivated,
discover his/her interests, grow his/her passions, love what he/she is doing in
class, and think of school as an exciting place not only to acquire knowledge
and skills, but also where learning is fun.
AN INVITATIONAL ENVIRONMENT WITH INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES
offer our learners a safe, supportive, and an engaging learning environment
within and outside school campus, that connects with the learners’ real life,
and equips them with skills that ensure their success in school and life.
community members bring a broad range of cultural perspectives to the learning
environment, and this diversity has the capacity to enrich teaching and
learning in our school. Our teachers use a wide variety of strategies and
global resources to work creatively with different cultural worldviews, and
bring an international perspective into our curriculum.
DIVERSITY THROUGH DIFFERENTIATION
value diversity and the unique contributions each learner brings to the
classroom and the school community. Through differentiation, we thrive to
engage and motivate all learners in the classroom, thereby enhancing their
learning. We believe that differentiation is the way of being in the classroom
and not just a strategy that you use in your classroom today.
A CULTURE OF THINKING
our quest to build a culture of thinking in our community, we aim to make
thinking more visible in our endeavor to understand what, how, and why our
children are learning. In parallel, we strive for the development of a
professional community in which deep and rich discussions of teaching,
learning, and thinking are a fundamental part of our teachers’ ongoing
aim to develop successful learners, confident individuals, responsible
citizens, and effective contributors to society. We strive to accomplish that
by enabling our learners to find out about their world for themselves. In
addition, we support them as they learn to assess evidence, negotiate and work
with others, solve problems, make informed decisions, and become more skilled
in evaluating the ethics and impact of their decisions. We encourage our
learners to think deeply and critically about what is equitable and just, and
we prompt them to take action in real life situations.
promote the responsible use of technology by instilling in learners digital
ethics, etiquette, and knowledge about online safety, as they acquire digital
skills and participate in today’s world.
A GROWTH MINDSET
believe that fostering a growth mindset at the learner, teacher, and parent
level is the foundation of every great achievement, and that the path to a
growth mindset is a journey, not a proclamation. We aim to exhaust our search
for practices to cultivate a growth mindset within our school by focusing our
attention on the value of flexibility, adaptability and empowerment.
