It has been designed to allow ISHCMC to continue adjusting its systems and pedagogies and creating a new educational model that will prepare students to be resilient, flexible and successful in their futures. There are endless spaces for collaboration, sharing of thinking and encouraging student creativity. There are spaces for students to develop as artists, musicians, actors and sportsmen and sportswomen. Areas have been designed to support student learning at all levels from a progressive and innovative media center to learning support and wellness suites for intellectual, social, and emotional development. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for students to develop their own personal learning pathways throughout their school life.”
