Mastery of each unit is evaluated with an A or B (mastery grades). B represents mastery at a very good level and “A” represents mastery with the student demonstrating higher order thinking skills. Mediocre or poor work (C and D) are not accepted. If a student has mastered a unit with a B evaluation, they may wish to demonstrate a higher level of mastery at a later time, within that current school year, to change the evaluation to an A. A time period (quarter, semester, term) is not evaluated; student performance for the school year is assessed on each essential unit in which a student is engaged.
Sports include volleyball, basketball, football, badminton, and tennis. QSI Phuket has two outdoor football fields, one basketball court, and equipment that can be used to set up a volleyball court. There are other sport facilities that are not owned by QSI, but instead public, that are often used for sports such as tennis and swimming.
