The Social Studies and Science curriculum at SIHA includes all conventional elementary and middle school content, using experiential learning to develop skill and ensure comprehension. The children are involved in observation, discussion, reading, writing, study skills development, projects, and field trips. Focused discussions take place in collaborative groups. Students close each experiment or discussion with a study sheet to assess their comprehension of material taught. To make lessons meaningful, interdisciplinary teaching is always woven into each instructional piece. Current event articles, experiments, and text books are used for teaching and learning.
