5- to 11-Year-Olds Program


QSI International School of Dili offers a full program of Literacy (reading, writing, listening and speaking), Mathematics, Cultural Studies, and Science provided by the classroom teacher. Specialist teachers in Music, Art, Physical Education, Library, and Technology follow a curriculum specifically developed for the developmental levels and interests of children. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum at all levels. Intensive English classes are offered to students 8 years old and older to help them gain the skills needed to be successful in an English speaking learning environment. Foreign Language is for all students from 5 to 11 years old.

QSID is a small school with very small classes. This allows teachers to spend time with individuals and small groups to ensure mastery in each unit. Some classes have mixed groups with two grades. All students are taught Mathematics and Literacy at their developmental level, whether they are advanced, on level, or are in need of some additional time to grasp concepts.
