Eton International School is part of the International Learning Styles Network (ILSN) that helps children reach their full learning potential. Learning Styles uses the Dunn and Dunn Model that assesses students’ unique learning preferences and strengths in order to provide the best learning atmosphere. The Dunn & Dunn Model is based on over 80 years of research on how children learn differently. It acknowledges intelligence in Environmental Domain (sound, light, temperature, seating design), Emotional Domain (motivation, task persistence, conformity, structure), Sociological Domain (alone, pairs, peers, team, with an adult, with variety), Physiological Domain (auditory, visual, tactual, kinesthetic, time of day, intake, mobility), and Psychological Domain (analytic/global, impulsive/reflective).

INTERNATIONAL PRIMARY CURRICULUM
At Eton International School, we provide clarity about what children should learn as provided by the International Primary Curriculum.Eton provides a comprehensive yet fun learning for 5-12 year olds, with a clear process of learning for three specific learning goals.
- Subject Goals: The subject goals cover the knowledge, the skills and the understandings. There are subject Learning Goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Society.
- Personal Goals: The personal goals (enquiry, resilience, morality, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability) underpin individual qualities and learning dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work, and referenced at the end of every task to signpost opportunities for teachers to further develop them.
- International Learning Goals: The international learning goals help young children begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international, global and intercultural perspective and develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’. Every lesson has embedded within it, across the different subjects, learning-focused activities that help children start developing a global awareness and gain an increasing sense of themselves, their community and the world around them, as well as inspiring positive action and engagement with global issues.

CURRICULUM IS FLEXIBLE
FOCUS ON LEARNING GOALS
INTERNATIONAL MIDDLE YEARS CURRICULUM
The International Middle Years Curriculum at Eton International School improves the way 11-14 year olds learn. It is a challenging, engaging, internationally-minded, concept-focused curriculum designed specifically for the unique learning needs of 11-14 year olds.
- Linking all subject learning to a big idea. Eton International School follows a conceptual theme known as the big idea. Neuroscientists say the brain learns ‘associatively’, always looking for patterns and linking to previous learning. The aim of the IMYC is to help students develop the habit of identifying links in their learning for themselves through linking all learning with the Big Idea. The IMYC links the knowledge, skills and understanding of each subject to the most appropriate Big Idea.
- Responding to the specific developmental needs of 11-14 year olds. The adolescent brain is undergoing major changes, mainly maturation of the prefrontal cortex and specialization. This involves ‘pruning’ connections between brain cells and changed behaviors. Eton International School provides opportunities for students to work with and learn from peers, to lead their own learning and to take risks, to tackle a wide range of self-directed investigation, to experience security and familiarity through a consistent learning process, to reflect upon their learning and to connect their learning to the world around them.
- Working towards understanding through a personal and global perspective. Journaling throughout IMYC units help students to reflect and link their subject learning throughout the unit developing understanding and making personal meaning from the perspectives of ‘self’ and ‘other’. Students then represent what the Big Idea means to them personally and from a global perspective through their creative media project exit point. (Source: IMYC)
