At VERSO, we understand the importance of coming together. Community Time is designed to connect, reflect, build relationships and a sense of belonging. Community Time is an opportunity to seek feedback and make informed decisions about next steps in the learning journey.
At VERSO, we understand there is a time and space for focused learning to develop academic skills, dispositions and knowledge across the curriculum. Learning Labs combine an interdisciplinary approach through project based learning. Learning Labs are led by Learning Designers.
At VERSO, we understand that empowered learners are motivated learners. Explore is a daily dedicated time. Explore time is designed to develop student autonomy through self-directed learning. Learners identify a focus based on personal interest, whilst connecting goals with academic skills, dispositions and knowledge.
Explore time helps learners understand how they best learn and the possibilities that come when they are empowered to navigate their own learning journey.
At VERSO, we understand that learning is different for every learner. Workshops are designed to develop or refine targeted mastery academic skills, dispositions and knowledge. Workshops can be led by Learning Designers, Learners and experts in our community or beyond.
At VERSO, we understand the power of relationships. ConVERSO is a time for Learning Designers to conference one-on-one with the learner. ConVERSO incorporates reflection & intentional feedback to guide learning. ConVERSO can be initiated by either a learner or a learning designer.
BEYOND THE WALLS
We value making learning immersive through partnerships and connections beyond our campus.
We understand how engaging with the world enables learners to gain empathy and understanding of cultures around them. Through an immersive and experiential approach to learning, students will find their places in the world and make a meaningful contribution and build authentic relationships.
APPLIED LEARNING EXPERIENCES (ALX)
We value learning that is applied to real world situations.
Applied learning experiences (ALX) are designed for students to build skills and knowledge in project-based, multi disciplinary environments . When students consistently apply what they learn, they master future focused skills and critical thinking.
Fostering and valuing a culture of kindness. We intentionally encourage acts of kindness that stem from compassion, empathy, and humility in our students. At our school, students learn to connect deeply with others and experience
a sense of belonging. Learners, Learning Designers, administrators, parents, and partners all contribute to building a strong community.
The school year is organized into two semesters: August to December, then January to June.
The school calendar includes standard school holidays as well as significant Thai national holidays.
We value learning that extends beyond the walls and we encourage our students to take full advantage of the opportunities offered. VERSO students are able to train in world-class athletic facilities and high performance programmes. In addition, students can explore projects and passions in service, creativity, and culture. Exposure to explore a wide variety of interests throughout the year compliments student life and learning at VERSO.
