by promoting personal excellence in the classroom and beyond.

Definition of Learning

PSI, as an IB World School, defines learning as a holistic, purposeful, learner-centred and inquiry-based process. At PSI, learners engage in a personalised journey of discovery, reflection and action, which is motivated by their passions and interests. Recognising that learning is limitless, individuals collaboratively build their knowledge, skills and understanding in academics, arts, athletics, and service, with the well-being of themselves and the wider global community in mind.
