Teda International School recognizes the abilities of each student and works on fostering them. Upon entering the school, students will feel a sense of belonging by becoming part of a House community.
The House system develops positive interaction among grade levels from Pre-K through to Grade twelve. Students will have the opportunity to gain merits, both individually and collectively for their House, through various activities/events held at the school. This in turn, will promote healthy competition and allow a sense of mentoring and leadership to build up between the older and the younger students.
With the exception of Administration, each teaching staff member will be placed in a House. The even distribution of staff will allow students to become more familiar with those staff members they rarely have a chance to interact with, or turn to for support. The House system dovetails nicely into our existing Virtues and ESLR (Expected School Wide Learning Results) programs; merits, or demerits, can be given based on students demonstrating targeted Virtues.
Reflecting both our host country, and the strength of our school, each House will be represented by a dragon. Each dragon in turn will represent one of the Five Elements, and their corresponding characteristics. There are a total of 5 Houses, but they all share the same hierarchy.
ALL HOUSES ARE EQUAL!!
