The Verita International School Difference

We understand that the world is becoming a more connected and complex place. Education needs to be more than the just simple transfer of knowledge. Students need to become independent thinkers, problem solvers and innovators.  At Verita, we cultivate the skills that allow students to become the leaders of tomorrow.

The Verita student is global, interdisciplinary, and boundaryless. They challenge what is possible and find solutions for what is impossible. They are empowered for an unknown future. 

How We're

Different

Emotional Intelligence

We leverage social-emotional learning methods & curricula to empower students to comprehend & manage emotions so they can ultimately channel them into self-awareness & management, decision-making, and resilience skills.

Inquiry-Based Learning

A teaching approach that builds on the idea that educators and students both share responsibility for learning. Students’ questions, ideas, and observations lay at the core of the learning experience. Inquiry methodologies require students to engage in evidence-based reasoning, learning by doing, and creative problem-solving.

Low Student - Teacher Ratio

Verita classes reflect our student-centric philosophy with an impressively low student-teacher ratio of 1:9. The small size of our classes, combined with our inspiring & highly qualified teaching faculty guarantee that students get independent attention and tailor-made differentiated support.

Well-being

Verita actively builds internal programs that promote student and staff well-being. We ensure a space where students feel physically and emotionally safe with a caring adult looking after the progress and acting as an advocate for each child. Most importantly, we ensure that kindness is the center of everything we do.

Service Learning Projects

Verita students must participate in meaningful community service which exposes them to active engagement within communities or environments in need. Using curriculum objectives and innovative approaches, our students work on real-world problems.

Student Agency

Verita promotes skills in students where they build their own, self-directed learning abilities and strategies, allowing them to develop a higher degree of autonomy and self-mastery. Student agency is “the ability of students to act independently within a given environment and assume an amount of control and empowerment”.

  • Mastering Halves one lesson at a time! 

A typical day in our classrooms involves ongoing unit group studies, independent learning, classroom activities and so much more. Today, we got a chance to peek into Mrs. Ruby's Year 1 Maths Class exploring the concept of "Halves" through various learning strategies—traditional lessons, playful learning, practice, testing and more!

Our commitment is to support our learners through a personalized approach, ensuring no one is overlooked or left behind. Our mission is to create an inclusive and dynamic learning environment where every child can thrive. 🌟👩‍🏫

A huge thank you to Ms.Vassiliki, our wonderful PE teacher and everyone who helped organize this fantastic event. We can’t wait for the next one! Keep an eye out for more sneak peeks – you never know what delightful surprises we have in store for you! 💙

  • Teaching our children fundamental values from an early age is crucial, as this is when they absorb the most information and begin to form their core beliefs about the world. Given that the ocean covers more than 70% of our Earth, it’s vital to introduce this topic early on, helping children appreciate its significance.

But who said learning has to be limited to lectures and worksheets? Effective education, especially on important topics like our oceans, involves various engaging methods. Hands-on activities, tuff tray exploration, captivating educational videos, and encouraging conversations and questions are just a few ways to make learning about our underwater world exciting and memorable.

Over the past couple of weeks, our early years students have been delving into the wonders of the ocean and understanding its critical role in our daily lives. By fostering a sense of curiosity, pleasure and appreciation, we hope these experiences will stay with them for years to come. On important days like World Oceans Day and beyond, we can encourage these conversations by incorporating ocean-themed activities at home, discussing conservation efforts, and exploring nature together. It's through these continuous, everyday interactions that children develop a lasting respect and love for our planet.

Happy #WorldOceansDay! 🌊💙

  • Step into Mrs. Tania's ✨vibrant phonics class!✨ 

Mrs. Tania is dedicated to fostering her students' reading and writing skills through regular group activities that focus on phonics.

"It serves as the foundation for teaching young children how to read and write. I find it incredibly rewarding to witness the moment when students grasp the connection between sounds and letters, unlocking the world of literacy before them."

One of the engaging exercises she uses involves flash cards to practice difficult word endings. In group settings, students say the endings together and use them in example words, like "-ow" in "cow." This collaborative approach helps reinforce their understanding and boosts their confidence.

By making phonics a core part of her teaching, Mrs. Tania transforms the classroom into a space of discovery and excitement. Her students' enthusiasm and progress reflect the importance of these foundational lessons. Every session is a step toward confident, capable readers and writers, igniting a lifelong love for learning.

The Verita Learning Adventure ?

The National Curriculum of England is our core curriculum.  We introduce Fieldwork Education’s IEYC, IPC, and IMYC frameworks to provide a deeper interconnected, interdisciplinary, and intercultural learning experience.  Emory University’s Social Emotional Ethical program and Second Step’s Mindfulness curriculum are weaved throughout the curriculum.

Verita ensures that all students meet the rigorous milestones and objectives of the National Curriculum while providing exciting inquiry-based learning opportunities in parallel. 

We believe that through inquiry, active learning, and the development of emotional intelligence in a safe environment, all students are capable of mastery of knowledge, skills and understanding.
