Arcadia School is more than just a school; it is a community of learners who share a common vision of making a positive difference in the world.
Education for all, all for education
An inclusive culture at Arcadia School values and celebrates the diversity of its students, staff, and community. All staff at the school recognizes and responds to the different needs, interests, and strengths of each ward, and provides them with equal opportunities to learn and grow.
We embrace a holistic approach to foster a sense of belonging and respect for all students, regardless of their identity, background, or ability as we build a positive and supportive learning environment. At Arcadia, everyone feels privileged, valued, and honored because we promote social and emotional well-being along with academic achievement and civic engagement among our pupils. As a result, they learn to appreciate and collaborate with people from different perspectives and experiences.
Multidimensional perspective, single goal
A healthy culture and environment at Arcadia School promote academic excellence and socio-emotional development as we believe in providing students with diverse perspectives and opportunities to face practical challenges. Diverse perspectives can help students to learn and discuss multidimensional thinking, learning, and communicating. As a result, pupils at Arcadia develop critical thinking and empathy skills.
The present market trends and demands are taught and interpreted to motivate students to explore their inner selves, passions, and real interests. They are also given chances to discover and explore newer arenas. Practical challenges are given and explained to encourage pupils to overcome obstacles, persevere, and grow from feedback. A healthy culture and environment at Arcadia School build a sense of belonging, respect, and ownership among students, teachers, and families that assures their well-being and academic excellence.
Adapt coexistence, celebrate diversity
One of the goals of education is to prepare students for a global society, where they are likely to interact with people from different cultures, ethnicities, perspectives, and beliefs. To achieve this goal, Arcadia School plays a vital role in exposing its pupils to different cultures, languages, and values to encourage them to appreciate and celebrate diversity. By doing so, we help our students develop intercultural competence, essential thinking, and empathy for others.
Some of the ways we believe are the best ones to expose students to different cultures, languages, and values:
- Including topics that explore the history and literature along with art and music of different regions and traditions of peoples from all across the globe.
- Providing opportunities for learners to understand the importance of national and foreign languages and to communicate with native speakers through several ways such as exchange programs, online platforms, or cultural events.
- Inviting renowned guest speakers and experts to share their experiences and insights on various important subjects or topics like human rights, environmental sustainability, or ever-changing consumer demands.
- Organizing short trips for projects or activities to make students visit or interact with different cultural communities, institutions, or organizations in specific areas or abroad.
- Building a friendly yet professional environment that reflects and respects diversity like displaying multicultural artifacts, celebrating different festivals, or promoting humanitarian policies and practices.
We are in constant efforts to expose students to different ethnicities, races, cultures, and values to encourage them to appreciate and celebrate diversity. This means that an Arcadia student recognizes and values people from all over the world and respects and supports every individual even with a different identity and choice. Arcadia School appreciates and celebrates diversity as its students develop a sense of belonging and responsibility for the global society, and a willingness to contribute to its well-being and harmony.
