Suzanna International School of Art and Design is a 9th-12th grades college preparatory high school, which offers a unique educational approach to secondary education by implementing our educational philosophy and Immersion Study Program.
SISAD has restructured the standard class schedule setup by implementing the one main subject per day policy.
By studying one main subject every day for three consecutive blocks (e.g., English on Monday, Biology on Tuesday, etc.), we believe our students produce a state of intellectual focus through this concentrated study plan.
