Student Life

SABIS Student Life Organization®

“Tell me, and I forget, teach me, and I remember, involve me, and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin

 

The SABIS Student Life Organization® (SLO®) is the heart of the school and a pillar of the SABIS® Educational System. It is a student-led mini-society that empowers students to get involved in the day-to-day experience at their school and offers countless academic, social, and emotional benefits for everyone involved.

Through the organization’s nine departments, students have the power to make a real difference in their school and their community. SLO® prefects have the ability to organize academic and social events, host games and challenges, plan athletic activities, explore new skills, start clubs, raise awareness on important subjects, stand-up for important causes, and much more.

“Having my daughter more involved in SLO®, I have seen her confidence grow. She has learned to work with her classmates. She is thinking about how her school integrates and impacts her wider community.  When she refers to SLO®, she uses words like pride, friends, and together.” Wendy M., ISM Parent

By taking on this active role, students learn to take responsibility for their emotional, social, and moral growth as both individuals and members of a larger community. The real-life experiences students are exposed to help foster their personal development as well as provide them with a platform to acquire and refine skills, attitudes, and attributes that give them a huge advantage in university and beyond.

Some of these essential life skills include:

  • Leadership
  • Problem-Solving
  • Sociability
  • Critical thinking
  • Organization
  • Grit & Resilience
  • Independence
  • Empathy & Tolerance
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Team Work
  • Accountability

 

Having demonstrated that they have a broad base of abilities and experiences and that they can be effective team players, top universities from around the world are eager to attract and accept them. It is these same skills, attitudes, and attributes learned and developed through the SLO® that make graduates from ISM and other SABIS® Network schools successful in university and beyond.
