Our classrooms are airconditioned and equipped with the latest technology to provide an interactive environment where students are encouraged to use their own devices to access their learning materials. Many of our classrooms are equipped with technology to enable hybrid learning, whereby students can also access teachers from home simultaneously with students in the classroom.
Our teachers are constantly learning in order to adopt effective and creative approaches to teaching and learning. Through current methodology blended with technology, teachers seek to create cooperative and active classrooms where learners use multiple resources to construct knowledge and apply these skills practically. All our teachers have first degree in their subject with years of experience. More than 90% of our teachers have masters degree.
Our school environment facilitates students to work cooperatively and in harmony with each other. Students are mentored by their class teachers. Students’ development, progress and well-being are of the utmost concern for the staff of VIHS.
Students are exposed to various environments and learning experiences through field trips to local and international destinations. From these trips students will enrich their understanding about the culture, as well as Science and Business worlds. In trips to local destinations students will explore the culture, heritage, dialects and customs of the locals of those atolls. In trips to overseas destinations students will visit garment, automobile and food production factories; banks, universities and other institutions, as well as nature parks, botanic gardens, universities, laboratories and research facilities.
Students spend five to seven hours per day at school, during which time they complete all class work and assignments. Enrichment and extra classes are also provided for students requiring support.
We seek to fully engage our students as active learners by providing a broad range of learning experiences through online resources and practical classroom sessions.
Parents can monitor the students’ attendance and performance in real time.
Students can take part in sports, competitions, exhibitions, symposiums and workshops organized by the houses and clubs of VIHS.
