Information Literacy Specialist

Oasis International School - Kuala Lumpur

School Background:
Oasis provides a rewarding educational experience for students using the U.S. model. We believe that the United States education system is successful because of its commitment to having qualified and caring teachers, offering a personalized learning experience, educating using a holistic approach, and appreciating diversity. Learn how Oasis implements each of these important elements to help students be successful and ready for university with a U.S. diploma in hand. All of our teachers, with the exception of the foreign language teachers, have U.S. Teaching Qualifications in their respective subject areas. The U.S. requires every teacher to complete a set of courses, pass tests, and obtain practical teaching experience before granting them a teaching license with subject area certifications. In addition, every teacher has experience teaching in American or international schools and will complete ongoing professional learning throughout the year. However, our teachers aren’t just qualified, they’re caring too! Our teachers love their students! Since our teachers are qualified and caring, they have the necessary skills to address your child’s needs and, consequently, to have the greatest impact on your child’s success. Oasis offers an innovative academic model of teaching and learning with classes that are rooted in content and skills that align with standards. The standards are designed to challenge students academically as well as to encourage them to think critically and demonstrate creativity. Building 21st-century learning skills is accomplished with the help of technology. However, we know that all children are unique and have individual needs and talents. Therefore, our teachers strive to differentiate instruction in their classes, and our flexible learning environment helps to facilitate varied instructional strategies. For advanced high school students, Oasis offers Advanced Placement (AP) classes. To learn more about our education program, please visit our Learning page as well as our pages for Elementary School, Middle School, and High School.
