Level of Education

  • Primary Years Programme

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an international curriculum framework designed for all children between the ages of 4 and 12 years (Kindergarten to Year 6). The PYP focuses on student learning, using a concept based on enquiry approach. Students continually reflect on their learning in relation to what is happening inside and outside the classroom. Their learning is linked to the issues and experiences that happen in the world around them. Enquiry is the engine of individual growth (academic, social, physical, emotional and spiritual) and international mindedness.

The PYP ensures a globally comprehensive curriculum with an in-depth standing within the local context. It assists students to develop their knowledge, skills and conceptual understanding in learning environments beyond simply the classroom.

  • Low teacher to student ratio.
  • All school programmes are collaboratively planned in year level teams, composed of teachers and specialists through Units of Inquiry.
  • The curriculum is implemented through a transdisciplinary approach using dual languages of instruction.
  • Our language programme is rich and diverse, with formal instruction by local and international native speakers in English, Bahasa Indonesia and Mandarin, with Korean mother tongue support available.
  • A Primary Student Council provides real experiences and opportunities for the development of leadership, decision-making and organisational.
  • ICT is integrated into all subject areas.


  • Middle Years Programme

The MYP is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students aged between 12 and 16 years (Year 7 to Year 10). It is a coherent and comprehensive curriculum framework which allows students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate effectively with the changing demands of life in the twenty-first century. This programme provides young people with an education for life and teaches them to relate the learning content of the classroom to the realities of the world outside.

Fundamental Concepts

  1. Intercultural Awareness

Intercultural awareness is concerned with developing students’ attitudes, knowledge and skills as they learn about their own and others’ cultures. It not only fosters tolerance and respect but also leads to empathy and understanding.

  1. Holistic Education

Holistic education helps students to see their knowledge as an interrelated whole. Holistic learning emphasises the interconnectedness between subjects. Students will realise that what they learn in one subject is important and is connected to what they learn in every other subject.

  1. Communication

A good command of communication in all of its forms is fundamental to learning. It is essential that students know how to communicate well in expressing their understanding and ideas.


  • Diploma Programme

​​​​​​​In Year 11 and 12, students study the IB Diploma programme (all subjects are taught in English). The IB Diploma Programme is a two year pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated, well organised students aged 16 to 19. The IB Diploma aims to:

  • prepare students for tertiary studies
  • provide students with a balanced education
  • foster critical thinking skills
  • encourage cultural understanding and respect
  • develop international awareness and broaden perspectives.
