Conversations With Our Students

We continue our Community Conversations series with Arsha, one of our Middle School students. We ask him how he feels now that we have been back on campus for a while? Check out the video to see what he has to say.

We continue our Community Conversations series by hearing from one of our seniors, Lydia on preparing for university. At OIS, we serve a diverse group of students who each have a unique pathway to university and beyond. At university and career planning sessions, our OIS High School and University Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Macleod helps families understand each country’s unique requirements and find the best university based on their child’s abilities, goals, interests, and values.

One of our recent 2021 graduates, Hyunbae, was accepted into the prestigious NYU Abu Dhabi and is enrolled as a B.A. Business student, DARO Intern - Class of 2025.

He is thankful for all that he received at OIS and recently sent the school this message. “I just wanted to say that I am enormously appreciative of every single staff member at Oasis. Words can’t describe the respect and love and gratitude I have towards you all. I wouldn’t be anywhere in life without your help and support.”

Oasis International School Student Selected to Exhibit in International Annual “Embracing Our Differences” Art Competition. Malaysian High School student Naomi Luv Lee is no exception to the winners before her. Attending Oasis International School - Kuala Lumpur for the past few years, she spent most of her childhood living abroad and understands firsthand what multiculturalism looks like. Her unique life experiences and her love for creating digital illustrations served her well in her winning submission titled “We Are Born Equal”.  Naomi graduates this year and plans to continue her creative pursuits at the university level. 

OIS has a whole stream of evaluations throughout their whole duration of school. There are a lot of processes actually involved to ensure that the student is actually learning what they are supposed to be learning.

Learning at OIS is a balanced, holistic approach based on the United States education model. Classes are rooted in content and skills that align with standards from AERO (American Education Reaches Out), a project that assists American overseas schools by providing standards that are based on the United States’ Common Core initiative. These standards are designed to challenge students academically as well as to encourage them to think critically and demonstrate creativity.

In addition, to reinforce and expand upon the skills found in AERO’s standards, classes also use P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning. The Framework for 21st Century Learning defines the skills and knowledge that students should acquire to succeed in life beyond the classroom. OIS provides a support system for students to learn P21’s Life and Career Skills; Learning and Innovation Skills; and Information, Media, and Technology Skills.

By combining AERO’s standards and P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning, our teachers create an environment where your child has the opportunity to become a well-rounded student, equipped with the skills for success in the classroom and in life.
