We strive to create an environment for authentic learning by delivering a challenging yet developmentally appropriate and engaging curriculum covering language, social studies, maths, the arts, and science. In addition to academic achievement, we also believe in developing the skills for the social, physical and emotional well-being of our students.
"The most significant and distinctive feature of the IB Primary Years Programme is the six transdisciplinary themes." - IBO
The six themes of global significance create a transdisciplinary framework that allows students to "step up" beyond the confines of learning within subject areas.
- Who we are
- Where we are in place and time
- How we express ourselves
- How the world works
- How we organize ourselves
- Sharing the planet
