Our 4C Model.
Our society is complicated and full of uncertainty. In this world that is surrounded by challenges of the market and an ever-changing information and technological environment create new tasks for modern academic institutions, academic organizations, or even personal life. In the philosophical and ideological aspect, progress in the technical side (telecommunications, internet) diminishes human belief in values, politics, economic stability. Even science loses its reliability, because steadfast facts inspired by new discoveries are rapidly changed by ever newer ones. As it is said that only permanent thing left is Change. If one can see in depth, in this changing world other than change the core values are the same. No doubt the appearance of these values changed a lot but behind the curtain, number of things are the same.
We took those unchanged values as the base of our philosophy and turned them into basic 4C model. These are the mile stones that we want to achieve through our system, with the cooperation of our partners.
The centerpiece of our philosophy is clarity of cause for which a child comes to school. Every child at our schools shall be encouraged to think what he/she likes to become, i.e. the ultimate goal of his/her education. Unlike the vast majority of children our students’ objective shall not be to become just a doctor, engineer, scientist, pilot, but a good and successful human being along with professional excellence.
After internalization of the above objective, ISC students shall be made to understand the importance of their total commitment which is absolutely necessary for their holistic development. As a result they will demonstrate punctuality, total attention to their learning and dedication to complete their tasks as per plans.
Our curriculum is placing tremendous focus on character-building of children. We are taking an innovative approach in this field. Instead of total reliance on traditional subjects like “Deeniyaat” or “Islamiyaat” we are integrating the concepts of “Honesty”, “Sense of Responsibility”, “Cleanliness”, “Care for Environment”, and the like in the curriculum, including related activities and assessments. This approach will ensure that children develop a high moral character.
Our focus on character-building should not be perceived as if we are compromising on the academic side. Students at International School of Cordoba shall be engaged in an environment of enhancing skills and competencies in all developmental domains, be it intellectual, physical, or social and emotional development.
