Wisdom International School of Excellence (WISE)
Our curriculum is designed to instil learning with a focus on stimulating intellectual curiosity and helping learners to develop a sense of astonishment and admiration through discovery and exploration.
We use the National Curriculum requirements for Nigeria as the strong foundation to develop our own skills based curriculum which meets the needs of our pupils. We are continuously searching for ways to enrich and diversify opportunities for learning, and involve parents and carers in contributing to what and how their kids learn in school.
The core curriculum has been carefully constructed to emphasize the development of Numeracy and literacy skills and foreign Language whilst also offering opportunities to develop ICT, Science, vocational and entrepreneurship studies, Sports and Arts. We place importance on offering opportunities for pupils to learn at first hand from the local environment through identifying community problems and acting on participatory solution. We vary our teaching styles to support education and to develop independence, co-leadership skills and operative teamwork.
The curriculum delivered is tailored to the individual child's development, abilities, skills and strengths. Our four core subjects are Mathematics, English, Social Studies, Basic Science Technology. In addition our children also study Art, Music, Religious Studies, Citizenship, Physical and Health Education and time is also given to develop, Personal and Social Education. Our goal is to develop an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs that pupils can choose to participate in beyond the school day.
The school staffs consists of the Technical monitor, School Manager, Head of Academics, Assistant Head of Academics, 25 Teaching Staff, 7 Classroom Assistants on Teachers Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) and 15 non-academic staff. Timetables are driven by the needs of our children. However, a support works full time with each reception class to support our very youngest children.
We have developed the following to ensure effective learning and teaching processes:
 Learning Benchmark (LB) and Monitoring Learning Achievements (MLA): Our teachers and educators are guided by Learning Benchmarks which is periodically reviewed in line with environmental context/emerging global issues and assessed through annual Monitoring Learning Achievements.
 Teacher Development Programme (TDP) to ensure regular capacity building of our teachers in 21st century skills and behaviour competencies.
