THE QSI MISSION STATEMENT
(QUALITY SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL)
Virtually every five year old comes to school eager to learn. The mission of Quality Schools International (QSI) is to keep this urge to learn alive in every child. Our 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 that have come to a foreign country, usually for a limited stay of a year or more.
Our schools follow a logical model of education which measures success by the accomplishments and attitudes of our students. We believe that all of our students can succeed, that their successes encourage them to continue in a pattern of success, and that it is the school’s responsibility to provide the conditions for success. These conditions include:
i) developing clear statements in measurable terms of what the student will do to demonstrate mastery of learning,
ii) providing the time and resources needed for each student to attain mastery, and
iii) 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.
We believe in providing an aesthetically pleasing physical surrounding under the charge of a caring staff that believes 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. We believe in providing resources such as books, learning materials, and educational technology.
Finally, we 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.
