Our Vision for a Better School
We have been working diligently to increase access to quality education for able learners and students with different cognitive needs alike. We want to reach out to different kinds of learners and provide multiple means of engagement, expressions, representations and actions.
Focusing on Results
How can you make sure your education goals are achieved?
How we ensure that all students are learning.
Each end of term we look back at our achievements of the current academic year and evaluate the progress of our current projects. Deep improvements need consistency and permanent benchmarking to be achieved. This section of the presentation starts by updating the 1st term retrospective with the latest developments.
Amazing IGCSE Results
The first SRIS cohort of SRIS students passed the Cambridge IGCSE exams with phenomenal results. 80% of the students received A or above, A and A* being the best grades. And this despite having a short preparation time of only one year, compared to the usual two years for the IGCSE program. 90% of the exams were graded B or above and every single exam was passed with at least a C, which given the high standards of Cambridge is still a good result.
Project Based Learning
Project-based learning (PBL) is a student-centered approach where students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.
This can happen through role games, simulations or internships. Another possibility is learning by working on a real world problem.
In business for example students were learning about Cash Flow by playing a game.
At Silk Road International School we offer a wide selection of extracurricular subjects and activities. After the clubs had to be suspended during COVID, we brought them back and are now actively extending our program of activities.
IGCSE Course Offers
BISA Cup 2022
Students of the top international schools in Bishkek regularly compete in an International School Tournament (IST). Our student did great this year and won the BISA Cup in Football. Our team also made 2nd (boys) and 3rd (girls) in the basketball tournament.
AMC Math Competition
International Math Competitions give our students an opportunity to measure their skills against a global competition. SRIS students participated in American Mathematics Competitions and won several awards. AMC is a series of examinations that build problem-solving skills and mathematical knowledge.
JISMO Math Competition
MWB Math Awards
Our SRIS students experience the joy of training hard and see that they are able to become better Math students, who can perform on the same level as their international peers. 30 students were awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze by Mathematics without Borders. MWB math competition has become one of the biggest Mathematics contests worldwide.
The College and University Counseling Department (CUC) at Silk Road International School helps SRIS students to navigate their career options and assists them in the often complex application process. Many students could be placed already this year and four students received scholarships.
In this fast moving world schools need to permanently adopt and improve. This is why we permanently inspect our program for potential of improvement and react to new teaching techniques and education options.
Last year’s statement is still true: Change is the only constant.
Cambridge Advanced Levels
Students in 11th grade were already taught the Cambridge Advanced Level syllabus. This gives them the option now to continue with 12th grade and take the A-Levels. This advanced study prepares them for university and gives them direct access to the main study, skipping foundation year.
Improved Language Program
We are completely overhauling our language program for English, Kyrgyz, Russian and German. We introduce the latest teaching standards for all languages and use the CEFR levels to organize our learning groups. The CEFR standard is currently also implemented by the Kyrgyz Republic.
Real World experience
Real World experiences are important for students to acquire real world skills. It also helps them to put what they learned at school into perspective and turn it into real knowledge.
We are proud to introduce the first signed partnerships with Karven Club and Orion Hotel for in-house seminars.
Thank you to Karven Club
Our IGCSE Physical Education students get the possibility to experience the business side of a sports club right at Karven Club. The management of Karven agreed to give our students an intensive tour of their facility. They will explain the inner workings of a sports club and show them what is important when you provide services in the Fitness industry.
SRIS is Great Value
SRIS is the most affordable Cambridge International School, providing a full Cambridge program at the lowest tuition fee available. SRIS provides permanent improvement of their education. That has made SRIS very popular this year and the waiting list is growing quickly. Public Registrations open on 16th of April. SRIS parents should prolong their contract until the 15th of April to secure their seat.
