WHAT makes a good school? A better question is, “what makes a good student?”
Since its founding over 60 years ago, Tenby Schools has grown into seven campuses around Malaysia, offering both the International and Private National curriculum. More importantly, over the years, Tenby Schools has developed a culture where students are given the space to explore their potential and be the best they can be.
However, today we live in an age of unprecedented challenges and opportunities amidst rapid change. Changing education trends reflect schools’ attempts to provide students with the knowledge, skills and adaptability necessary to be 21st century citizens. But, while new methods and tools are good, for effective learning to happen, one must go deeper than just merely adopting these new methods and tools.
Tenby Schools takes a different perspective. From its years of experience, it understands that at its core, education is founded on the relationship between teachers, students and parents. As such, it is focused on supporting parents’ efforts to mould their child’s character, because Tenby Schools know that excellence in character will result in excellence in all that the child attempts.
That is why Tenby Schools is proud to be part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), as its values are very aligned with the group’s approach to learning. Learning is about getting better – academically, socially, emotionally and more – and is the result of repeated experiences that hardwire getting better through good struggle. ISP schools apply this philosophy with methods that combine evidence-based brain research and global educational experience honed across the group’s 40-strong network of international schools.
As such, everything done at Tenby Schools is driven by the aim of optimising learning outcomes. Its teachers observe the children closely both inside and outside the classroom, while facilitating learning opportunities by challenging them on a personal, individual basis. Its goal is for its students to have amazing learning moments, when they reach a level beyond what they thought possible and can say, “I didn’t realise I could do that until now!”
For Tenby Schools, that’s what makes a good student. It is the self-motivated desire to see how far they can go. It is the confidence that comes from realising that their achievements are a result of perseverance through good struggle. It is the pride in knowing that they have become better versions of themselves. It is the hope in knowing that they can always be better. Our children can attain all this when they experience a school that empowers them to. For Tenby Schools, that is what makes a good school and that is what it is committed to be.
