Teaching approach of the school

At our school, we believe in a dynamic teaching approach that prioritizes student-led learning and project-based instruction. We recognize that children learn best when they are engaged and actively involved in their education, which is why we place a strong emphasis on hands-on learning and play-based instruction.

Our teaching approach is aligned with the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, which emphasizes inquiry-based learning and the development of critical thinking skills. We work hand in hand with the IB Traits and UN Sustainable Development Goals to promote global citizenship and social responsibility.

Overall, our teaching approach is designed to prepare students for success in the modern world, emphasizing not just academic knowledge, but also the development of essential life skills and the cultivation of a strong sense of social responsibility.
