In the OIS Elementary program, we concentrate on educating the whole child. We hold academics as vitally important, while still most interested in students learning to become strong, confident young men and women with the ability to collaborate with others and excel in all aspects of life.
- Jacob Huff, OIS Elementary Principal
The elementary school at Oasis International School - Kuala Lumpur is designed for our youngest students to build a strong foundation of knowledge, critical thinking skills, and leadership ability.
The elementary school is organized by grade level and has a maximum capacity of 15 students per class in Kindergarten and 25 students per class in 1st through 5th grade. Every class is taught by elementary school teachers with U.S. teaching certificates.
In addition to having qualified and caring teachers, OIS also offers a personalized learning experience and uses a holistic approach. In each elementary class at OIS, teachers use differentiation to meet the needs of each individual student. In addition, OIS focuses on various dimensions of a child as part of its holistic approach. For social development, OIS provides opportunities both in the classroom and outside the school walls for students to learn how to develop healthy friendship skills, social values, and empathy. Also, starting in kindergarten, OIS teaches the importance of how play and proper rest are vital to the educational experience and actually allow kids to function better at their academic tasks. OIS considers how long students sit at their desks without moving along with how many breaks, recesses, and PE sessions students have in a day. OIS takes each of these important elements into consideration to help elementary students be successful.
