At ISGR high quality learning happens when students are aware of how they learn, are able to make connections between subjects, connections with what they learn and their own lives, are actively engaged in their own learning and are able to reflect on that learning enabling them to take action.

Learning is a life-long process where students gain knowledge, develop new skills and deepen understanding.

High quality learning cannot take place without high quality teaching. High quality teaching takes place when teachers are well planned, setting clear expectations for lessons and units, while creating a positive learning environment for each student, maintaining high expectations and using a variety of strategies and approaches suitable for the varying learning and cultural needs within the classroom.
