About the House System
The House system develops positive interaction among grade levels from Pre-K through to Grade twelve. Students will have the opportunity to gain points, both individually and collectively for their House, through various activities/events held at the school. This in turn, will promote healthy competition and allow a sense of mentoring and leadership to build up between the older and the younger students.
Each teaching staff member will be placed in a House. The even distribution of staff will allow students to become more familiar with those staff members they rarely have a chance to interact with, or turn to for support. The House system supports SLAS’s Core Values, points can be given based on students demonstrating targeted values.
Reflecting our school and the success of our school sports teams, each House will be represented by a wildcat and a colour. There are a total of 4 Houses, but they all share the same hierarchy, and combine together to create the SLAS Wildcats.
Pre-K부터 12학년까지 전학년이 하우스 시스템을 통해 서로 친밀한 교감을 갖게 됩니다. 학교에서 주관하는 갖가지 활동/행사에서 개인적으로나 단체적으로 좋은 활약을 함으로써 자신의 하우스를 위해 점수를 획득할 수 있습니다. 이렇게 함으로써 건전한 경쟁을 부추기고 다양한 연령대의 학생들 간에 서로 돕고 이끌어주는 정신을 갖게 됩니다.
모든 교사들도 하우스에 고루 배정됨으로써, 학생들이 평소에 소통할 기회가 별로 없었던 교사들과도 친숙해지고,교사의 도움을 받을 수 있습니다. 하우스 시스템은 리빙스턴 미국학교에서 목표하는 가치를 실현하는 학생들에게 주어지는 중요 덕목을 중요시합니다.
학교와 학교 스포츠팀의 성공을 반영하는 의미로서, 각 하우스는 서로 다른 와일드캣과 색깔을 갖게 됩니다. 모두 4개의 하우스가 있지만 모든 하우스가 동등하며, LAS 와일드캣을 창조하기 위해 함께 협력하게 됩니다.
