Smiling High School’s teaching staff are passionate about their profession. They are rigorously selected on the basis of the following criteria:

  • In-depth knowledge of the subject they teach
  • Language skills
  • An ability to motivate students and build a genuine relationship with them

Teachers work together to nurture students’ talents based on the principles of cooperative learning. Our interdisciplinary approach means that all teachers collaborate while devising their own syllabus. This ensures a link between subjects, providing a holistic attitude to learning; a necessity in today’s connected world.
