Headmaster's message

Welcome to SIE!

At SIE, we encourage our students to set high expectations, enjoy school, and reward the community with their achievements. We believe that achievement derives from sustained, purposeful effort. Therefore, we nurture and celebrate disciplined intelligences, and we approach teaching with the expectation that every student will be successful. Our goal is to develop the whole child, including academic and non-academic skills, and to foster a culture of thinking, inquiry, reflection, resilience, and independence. Ultimately, we want our students to experience joy in their intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. Furthermore, we will create a safe, stimulating educational environment that motivates our students to keep exploring learning throughout life.

“Walk into any truly excellent school and you can feel it almost immediately — a calm, orderly atmosphere that hums with an exciting, vibrant sense of purposefulness. This is a positive school culture, the kind that improves educational outcomes.”
