Welcome to the Integrated International School!
Founded in 2009 by Dr Vanessa von Auer, one of Asia’s leading child experts, IIS is built on the principle that every child is capable of success that goes beyond one definition. We believe that success spans across a wide spectrum of possibilities. We know that no two students are the same, and that no individual child has the same response to learning in every situation – and that’s a great thing!
Our ultimate goal is to challenge our students to achieve the highest level of their own personal definition of success. Whatever their learning style may be, our educators are uniquely qualified to adapt lesson plans to each individual student’s strengths or preferred intelligence.
Supporting your child along their own path to success is what we work towards every single day. We believe that every child deserves a great quality education and the opportunity to be a successful human being. From this belief stems our motto that every child can be successful with a personalised education.
We think outside of the box and we want your child to know it’s more than ok if they do the same.
Redefining success for students of all abilities, preparing them to succeed on the global stage.
Providing every child with personalised support in a nurturing learning environment, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
Two Educational Approaches
From kindergarten to high school, your child will undergo major developmental leaps and experiences which will shape their ambitions and outlook on life. IIS stands ready for the challenge!
Choosing the right school for your family can be a nerve-racking decision, as school is one of the most important influencers for school-age children. In Singapore, schools tend to focus solely on academic excellence, creating a high-pressure environment where not every child thrives equally.
At the Integrated International School, we firmly believe that the traditional ‘one size fits all’ approach to learning just doesn’t work. Multiple intelligences matter. That is why we offer two teaching approaches:
- For mainstream students, who benefit from our diverse educational expertise and supportive environment.
- For mainstream students with individualised needs, who benefit from the additional resources and learning support available in-house.
With both approaches running in tandem, each student receives the differentiated learning experience they deserve, as well as developing balanced perspectives and a greater understanding of their fellow students.
To date, we are one of only a few inclusive international schools in Singapore catering to both mainstream students as well as students who need a more supportive approach. Our nurturing and developmental way of teaching ensures that all our students are able to excel in their own ways, achieving academic, as well as socio-emotional excellence.
Multiple Intelligences and Ways of Learning
Amongst the big jungle of international schools in Singapore, we stand out because we redefine success for students and parents. This means that we are aware of each individual’s multiple intelligences and preferred ways of learning.
According to Howard Gardner, Ph.D., Professor of Education at Harvard University, his theory of “Multiple Intelligences” goes beyond basic ways of learning. In fact, it is now widely understood that at least nine intelligences represent children’s learning aptitudes:
As such, our curriculum accommodates these varied learning styles by offering intimate classroom settings, along with enviable teacher-to-student ratios and customised lesson plans to foster individual as well as collective strengths, creating an integrated atmosphere.
The Promising SME 500 Campaign was spearheaded to recognize the exceptional achievements of business men and women in Singapore, highlighting their commercial success and also recognizing their contributions to the economy and the community at large.
“We’re very proud of this award – it symbolises what we’ve been striving for from the start: a high-quality educational institution that has each student’s needs in mind, so they love attending school each day. Additionally, we hope this award inspires our students to become entrepreneurs and professionals and to pursue their own dreams” – Dr. Vanessa von Auer
