Secrets of FISM Junior School
Open learning environment
We are studying in large classrooms called HUBs which are connected to little studios for smaller group works.
Collaboration of 50 students
Classes include 50 students who work and study together in flexible groupings.
Two Maldivian teachers and one Finnish form an expert team.
Two assistant teachers, one resource teacher and one SEN teachers are there to assist, to teach and to support the students.
In respect of Maldivian culture and religion, our Quran teacher works closely with our students and teachers.
Grade level group of students are divided into smaller groups to enable students’
individualized lessons. The beginnings and endings of the school days vary according
to the class-level timetables.
It is time to play and participate in games or just have a walk and talk with your friend!
Students are encouraged to bring a healthy lunch with them or enjoy one from our canteen.
Slight amount of homework
The amount of homework must be reasonable for children to have time for playing,
free reading, physical activities and friends and family!
FISM aims to prepare students for their future lives; by equipping them with the skill sets that they may require to excel in both their professional and personal lives. This is embedded into the curriculum itself, which not only elevates the joy of learning amongst students; but also provides them with a well rounded, holistic education.
In FIS Curriculum, we have localized the Finnish Core Curriculum to suit Maldivian school culture. The holistic perspective to educate and to bring up the students is apparent in our principles and in our cross-curricular approach.
