ECC Curiculum

Empowering and inspiring through challenge and compassion

At BCIS, we want all children to be empowered and inspired learners. As such, BCIS has developed a curriculum that best provides opportunities to differentiate and personalize according to a child’s readiness, interests and learning styles. As an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) school, the BCIS curriculum creates a balance between acquiring essential knowledge and skills, developing conceptual understanding, demonstrating positive attitudes, and taking responsible action.
