QSI instructors share a common vision. Our teachers believe that every student can reach success, and it is our top priority to provide whatever support necessary to aid them. We believe that strong teachers possess the willingness, creativity, enthusiasm, and motivation to reach all students regardless of background. We believe that it is the teacher’s responsibility to support the struggling learner, as well as to challenge the top students.
At QSI International School of Benin, our student-to-teacher ratio is seven-to-one. We keep class sizes small in order to ensure that each student receives individual attention and is valued as a person, with a strong emphasis on a positive community atmosphere and character education. Essential qualities such as trustworthiness, kindness, politeness, responsibility, independent endeavor, concern for others, group interaction and aesthetic appreciation are encouraged.
