There was an interest among students to take courses such as business management and economics that are not offered at the school. Hence, we partnered with Pamoja Education to provide our Diploma Program students with diverse course options as per their interests.
Students in the first cohort of the online Pamoja classes struggled with time management, self-discipline, and accountability. However, they took initiative and played a strong mentorship role in advising their peers at school regarding the online coursework, and how to determine if it is the right fit for them.
Overall, a willingness to adopt best practices and professional development across time has helped us cater to our students' learning needs and empower them to be self-driven in their passion projects. It's important to support teachers through professional development, involve parents through workshops, and most importantly - seek student feedback on the program and incorporate it into the direction the school takes with innovative forms of learning.
Our administration really trusts the teachers and puts a lot of confidence in them, which plays a major role in ensuring teachers stay motivated. Our students also display initative and curiosity by pursuing their interests in their independent projects and have presented their ideas and learning experiences at conferences.
The American International School of Zagreb prides itself on it's student-centered learning model that caters to a diverse student demographic - hailing from 36 different countries across the world. In addition to the American curriculum taught in grades K-12, the school also offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program to students in grades 11-12. The program values student independence, curiosity, and critical thinking, which is facilitated by the school's supportive learning environment and a motivated teaching staff.
There are currently no past timeline events for this school.
