Expected School wide Learning Results (ESLRs)
At Panyadee we define our educational program by our Expected School wide Learning Results (ESLRs). This set of expectations articulates what each student should know, understand and be able to do upon leaving Panyadee.
Working from our ESLRs, our educational program will equip all students with the knowledge, competencies, and orientations needed for success in a thinking, meaning-centered curriculum.
ESLRs guide teachers towards implementing programs and conditions that maximize learning success for all students in a standards-based curriculum.
Developed through a collaborative process involving students, families, teachers and administrators, Panyadee, the British School of Samui states that every student is prepared to be:
A global citizen, who:
- Values and respects diversity
- Makes a positive difference to the lives of others
