Smart Innovations School (SIS), founded in 2020, is an international, not-for-profit, and co-educational day school that is built to accommodate students from infancy to high school. The school strives to serve the needs of a diverse national and international community in Bangladesh. SIS aims to offer global best practices in education for its students.

The school has been conceived to be one of a kind that will bring in global education to Bangladesh and will be creating educational research-based curriculum. Technology focused delivery mechanisms will be of utmost importance to the future generations of learners and we aim to deliver that in Bangladesh.

English is the primary medium of instruction at SIS, except for regional and international language

classes. A student from the school is typically expected to be fluent in two or more languages. Teachers from various native-English speaking countries and specialist native-foreign language speaking teachers expand the global perspective, languages, culture, and educational experiences of the students to make the school a unique institution. In addition, SIS follows a STEAM-centric international curriculum to meet the future demands of knowledge, skill, and resources.
