The whole class is taught together, using the unique SABIS Point System®. The key concepts of a lesson are listed. Each of these is taught interactively, alternating oral work, individual written work, and group checking. Class time is utilized for building a solid foundation of knowledge through interacting, analyzing, forming and expressing opinions, and effective discussion. Discussions are based on critical thinking and logical reasoning.
The various teaching methods that are used and the pace that is set stimulate students by keeping them interested and channeling their enthusiasm. When in class, students learn actively: they do not simply listen to lengthy explanations or take dictated notes.
