Group Spotlight: Quality Schools International (QSI)

International teachers

Schrole is proud to represent some of the very best international schools from around the world. In our School and Group Spotlight series, we’ll take an in-depth look at these schools, detailing their history, ethos, location and of course, benefits, to help you choose the school that best suits you.

 

About: Quality Schools International (QSI)

Quality Schools International (QSI) is a non-profit foundation with 35 schools in 29 countries and 700 teachers educating over 6,500 students. The QSI World Headquarters Office is located in Malta, however, QSI’s teacher vacancies are for schools world-wide.

Each year QSI seeks to hire qualified educators, who love working with children, and who have the expertise to administer an English language, North American-style, international education.

QSI schools are co-educational day schools offering Advanced Placement programs and North American curriculum programs for PreK-12 students. In addition, some QSI schools offer the IB Diploma Program. QSI schools are accredited through Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, USA.

Established in 1991, QSI was founded as a non-profit, educational organisation, with a view to offering opportunities in education for expatriates in new countries. Today, QSI looks forward to providing excellence in education for international children living in many countries and to providing career opportunities for caring and competent educators.

 

Ethos: Quality Schools International (QSI)

The mission of Quality Schools International (QSI) is to keep the urge to learn alive in every child in QSI schools.

QSI schools are established to provide in the English language a quality education for students in the cities we serve. These students are the children of parents of many nationalities who have come to a foreign country, usually for a limited stay of a year or more. Some students are permanent residents, citizens of the host country.

QSI schools follow a logical model of education which measures success by the accomplishments and attitudes of students. QSI believes that all students can succeed, that their successes encourage them to continue in a pattern of success, and that it is the schools’ responsibility to provide the conditions for success.

These conditions include developing clear statements in measurable terms of what the student will do to demonstrate mastery of learning, providing the time and resources needed for each student to attain mastery, and ensuring that students engage in learning at a level which is challenging and yet a level for which each student has the prerequisite skills necessary for success.

QSI believes in providing an aesthetically pleasing physical surrounding under the charge of a caring staff who believe their students will be successful and who use time with the students as a resource for learning rather than as a boundary condition to determine when a unit of learning begins and ends.

QSI believes in providing resources such as books, learning materials, and educational technology. In the world today children need to become proficient in the use of computers and related technology as tools to accomplish a myriad of tasks.

Finally, QSI believe in working with parents to encourage our students to adopt qualities of living which lead to success long after formal schooling has ended. These include universally accepted “success orientations” of trustworthiness, kindness/politeness, responsibility, independent endeavor, concern for others, group interaction, and aesthetic appreciation.
