Upper Elementary School
The Upper Elementary School
In our Upper Elementary School, students in Grade 2 (age 7) to Grade 5 (age 10), build on the foundational experiences and skills. We continue to nurture your child’s natural curiosity and desire to make sense of the world around them. We do this through a variety of ways, but at the core, we believe in providing an environment and authentic learning experiences that aim to inspire and empower each student to fully engage in their own learning.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a concept-based, inquiry-driven framework where students are involved in their learning at deep levels. Students are given opportunities to explore, analyse, question, think, problem solve, and create meaning. We deliver our curriculum in a trans-disciplinary and interconnected way, helping students to see relationships between what they are learning and the world around them.
Through the PYP, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and our United Nations Principles, we encourage students to develop interests and follow passions. We believe the more a student has choice and is engaged at deep levels in his or her learning, the more they learn and the more they enjoy the process.
