Early Childhood Center

Toddler to Kindergarten

At the Early Childhood Center (ECC) we use investigative PLAY-BASED approaches as the foundation for learning. Reflecting the philosophies of leading early childhood theorists, young children learn best when they are engaged in experiences of self-discovery and can interact freely with the environment, their peers and teachers. The ECC faculty use the PYP framework to deliver a curriculum which meets these goals and nurtures the strong, meaningful development of our early years students in our state-of- the-art facilities.


Elementary School 

Grades 1 to 5

Our Elementary School (ES) curriculum nurtures curiosity and empowers students to have voice and choice in their learning. Meaningful learning takes place when connections are made to personal experiences and build upon prior knowledge and understanding. We place emphasis on the learning of concepts, skills and dispositions, developing knowledge and fostering responsibility. Combining the PYP and our school mission, our ES INQUIRY-BASED approach unlocks students’ potential and allows students to explore possibilities with a strong future focus. 


Secondary School

Grades 6 to 12

Our Secondary School (SS) learning model develops critical and creative thinkers, connected learners and purposeful doers. We achieve this with a harmonious balance of academic rigor, empowering student initiative and authentic project-based challenges. We reinforce knowledge, concepts and context, encourage learning by doing and prioritize social and emotional learning. Through the IMPACT-BASED approach to learning adopted in MYP, DP and IDEATE, students enter leading international universities and are equipped with the competencies and capabilities needed to adapt, thrive and contribute in an uncertain future.
