ABOUT ST. STEPHEN'S

St. Stephen's School is a non-denominational, co-educational, international boarding and day school, enrolling students from age 14-19 in grades 9-12 and for a postgraduate year.

 

Founded in 1964, St. Stephen's provides a demanding classical and liberal arts college-preparatory curriculum. We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12, as well as the American High School Diploma and a selection of Advanced Placement examinations.

 

MATHEMATICS AT ST. STEPHEN'S

Through inquiry-based instruction and integrated technology, the mathematics courses at St. Stephen's encourage students to embrace the universality of math and understand its pervasive influence on our everyday lives. With a focus on patterns and structure, methodology, problem-solving, logical analysis and deductive reasoning students are challenged to reach their full potential while engaged in a demanding program of study.

 

As the essence of mathematics is, at its core, a search for truth that can be verified by irrefutable proof, we train students to construct careful and rigorous arguments, to think logically and critically and to use the language of mathematics with precision both orally and in writing. Through the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, probability and calculus, students appreciate the important role mathematics plays in a modern society.

 

ABOUT ISMTF

The ISMTF is a nonprofit foundation whose purpose is to provide support in the enrichment of teaching and learning of mathematics at international schools, nurture exchange of experiences among mathematics educators, and to help generate interest in and enthusiasm for mathematics among students of these schools.

From the St. Stephen's Refugee Committee

Activities which include talks, presentations, photographic exhibits, meetings, charitable work and even football matches are the focus of the work of the SSS Refugee Committee in order to raise awareness of the ongoing plight of refugees. While not a new theme for St Stephen’s, this year faculty decided that an organized and coordinated school-wide effort needed to be made to explore some of the issues around the reasons of what Amnesty International is referring to as the “worst crisis of our time.” 

 

Last week, students heard a first-hand account of the crisis from Jonathan Dumont, a former parent and Head of Television at WFP, who also shared his photographs in an exhibit at the SSS Cultural Center. Students and the Refugee committee have organized a GoFundMe campaign to bring much needed medical care to an orphan Mr Dumont met int he Congo. You can read more about their efforts to raise money in the Head’s Newsletter. 

 

And this past Wednesday evening, a football match was organized with a team of Eritreans, who fled their home country under great duress and difficult circumstances to create new lives in their host country of Italy. They met St Stephen’s' team of footballers, scored some goals and had a chance to exchange stories.

 

Throughout the year, we will be bringing you more stories about the work of the SSS Refugees Committee and hope to also share student impressions about the ongoing crisis.

You can also read more on this topic in the upcoming issue of The Cortile magazine due out in January 2018.
