Dynamics International School’s motto is “Vitae Discimus”, which means learn for life. At Dynamics students don’t just learn for academic reasons, they learn for life.
Co-curricular activities have been widely known to complement students’ learning at school. Dynamics International School offers a wide range of Co-Curricular activities for our students. These include Music lessons, Lego, Language Arts as well as Soccer. As a school that focuses on the development of a child, DIS believes in the importance of supporting children with extra-curricular activities that in turn support the intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of every student. With children integrating with one another, this fosters lasting friendships and helps develop relationship skills. It also provides students with opportunities to be active in their communities and to take their learning beyond the classroom. This helps them do better academically and be prepared for the next stage of their lives. At Dynamics International School, we strongly believe that co-curricular activities are significant to a student’s holistic development.
The admissions criteria and process for Dynamics International School has been designed to facilitate understanding by our team based on student’s current and potential abilities as well as their needs. General information, outlining the entrance requirements according to the specific grades can be found on our website. Upon confirmation that the student meets the admission criteria, parents will go through a 3-step process to complete the admission process.
Firstly, parents would need to set up an interview and school tour with the Head of School. It is essential that parents send us copies of their child’s reports and documents. They will also be required to complete a child history questionnaire, required by the school. Following this, the head of school will follow up with parents within 2 working days. Should the student require a trial to assess his level in a classroom, the school will arrange for that. It is also essential that the students undergo an internal assessment or provide the school with recent academic reports that demonstrates adequate performance. Upon confirmation of the trial with the head of school, the educational psychologists will need to complete a screening assessment prior to the commencement of the trial.
The trials at Dynamics International School are planned for two consecutive days between 9am to 12pm each day. At the end of this process, a formal meeting will be organized with parents to discuss observations and decision. Following this meeting, parents can then register and enroll the child into the school.
