Why Cambridge?

A trusted pathway has been built for you.

As one of the Leading Cambridge Syllabus Schools in Chennai;

I am often asked the same question when meeting prospective parents who visit us "Why Cambridge?" I am always able to quickly and confidently answer with, "Because it works!"

To elaborate, Cambridge is, and always has been, a distinguished and reputable educational organization, one which has been around since 1858 and has continuously adapted curriculum and assessments to match with the changing times. This ensures that teachers are steadily up-to-date on changing trends in education and students are continually challenged with relevant material. 

A Cambridge education in Secondary years prepares students for life, helps them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. During the transition into adolescence, a strong structure is needed during teenage years. What is interesting is that schools can shape a Cambridge curriculum around how they want their students to learn, helping them discover new abilities and a wider world.  At ASIS and all SIS schools in the group, we have intertwined project-based learning into the Cambridge curriculum and our grading system. We believe that there are many different ways for children to learn and every child is unique. Real-life tasks or simulated tasks, spark curiosity and inquiry and provide learners with opportunities to connect directly with the real world.  Cambridge combined with our supplements helps students to develop the skills they need to achieve at school, university, and in the future. 

Moreover, during these many years of development, Cambridge has constructed a solid educational pathway for parents and students to follow. It has been strategically proven and designed to guide students through lower Secondary and IGCSE years. The outcome is that students are ready to successfully enter into our Junior College (International Baccalaureate Programme). Proud to be the leading Cambridge Syllabus Schools in Chennai.
