Fortes’ education philosophy is designed to provide students an education that is not only enriching in academics, but also fulfilling and rewarding in their lives. Our philosophy is based on realising the following six objectives:
Education for Life
Our schools are full of opportunities for personal development, achievement and enjoyment. We pride ourselves on our holistic approach to education based on academic excellence, excellent extracurricular activities and personalised care to each student’s development. We are committed to enabling our students to develop their strengths and realise their ambitions.
Learning for Life
Results for Life
Our approach to learning is innovative, enriched, flexible and inquiry-based. Our curriculum model teaches the subject areas of Mathematics, Languages, Science, and the Humanities providing for differentiated learning to suit a student’s individual needs. Our curriculum incorporates innovative teaching methodologies, regular assessments and consistent reporting strategies, while constantly recognising and rewarding student achievement.
While students are encouraged to excel academically, this is not the only measure of success. We believe in preparing students for life. We enable students to identify and develop their interests, appreciate cultural diversity, and become life-long learners and global citizens.
Values for Life
Virtues such as courage, honesty, compassion and humility are encouraged. Students get involved in community activities, volunteering, and charitable initiatives. Students develop their values through various value-based school activities and a curriculum that focusses on building the foundations of character and integrity.
