Middle School at HIS Niseko
New for 2021-22 Academic Year
Beginning in the 21-22 school year, HIS Niseko will launch a transformative new middle school program. Grounded in sound pedagogy, the new middle school will bring grades 6,7, and 8 student learners together, in one classroom, while offering a more personalized learning experience.
The IMYC is our International Middle Years Curriculum for children aged 11 - 14. It is used in over 140 schools in over 50 countries worldwide.
The middle school readers and writers at HIS Niseko will be inspired by a wide, varied, and robust array of genres. Instruction is aimed at supporting reading, writing, and critical thinking. Our students will learn through a variety of reading and writing and class discussions, all geared towards expanding higher-order thinking.
Readers Writers Workshop is a challenging, internationally minded and concept-focused curriculum, which helps develop engaged and active learners. With specific subject and personal learning goals, it provides a clear structure to develop knowledge, skills and understanding while making subject learning more connected.
Our lead middle school teacher is Bri Bailey.
