Here at VisionIN, teachers induce not only critical thinking, but the IB way of thinking in a class to class basis. To think in an IB way is crucial to understanding what IB wants from the students. IB strives to be well rounded, to build bridges between subjects and different fields, which strongly resonates with the teaching style at our centre.
All teachers here possess deep understanding of the IB syllabus, and knows what questions are likely to be asked on the next exams. We also seek to organise the IB journey of students by planning classes carefully during their two years of study. We consider:
- The pace at which the student is learning at school
- The projected date where the student finishes their syllabus
- The dates of unit tests, mock exams and final exams
