Middle and Senior School (Gr5 --- Gr12)
LWIS - Adma International School
(LWIS-AIS) aims to promote social, emotional, moral, academic, and cognitive
growth in order to build responsible students who will become pillars of change
in society. We will utilize the 3 S’s (Stay Postivie, Stop Complaining, Seek Solutions)
in order to help all learners become solution focused.
The purpose of setting a
behavior policy is not to punish the students but to provide them with an
opportunity to learn from their mistakes and behave in a more constructive
manner in similar circumstances in the future. Our purpose is to instill values
and build skills in order to help students develop self-discipline and
self-motivation. Our teachers and administrators will use the NEST approach
(Negotiation, Engagement, Support, Tolerance) to encourage students to make the
right choices. If a student still chooses to engage in an unacceptable
behavior, then the following statements will be in effect:
1-If a student wishes to
use his or her laptop during break time, a written permission must be obtained
from the Head of Section.

parents will be charged accordingly. If a student refuses to do so, then he or
