At the elementary school level, we focus on the blending of the Chinese National Curriculum and a standard based international English Language curriculum. This integrated curriculum is implemented within the framework of “Visible Learning”. All teaching activities are student-centered and driven by inquiry. The purpose of teaching is to cultivate a student’s love for learning, so that students can grow into life-long learners. Our instructional design is based on the model of “Explicit Teaching” and incorporates teaching practices that allow students to understand...What they are learning...Why they are learning...and How they know they have learned it. Our elementary program starts the students on the pathway of international success.
Continuing the framework of Visible Learning, the middle school education broadens the experiences of the students, ensuring each student develops self-confidence, perseverance and kindness. The students are given a wider range of international studies as well as maintaining the Chinese curriculum standards and the international English standards. We maintain the model of Explicit Teaching and provide added support to students with difficulties with language acquisition. We support and advise the students during the middle school, to follow their interests and develop clearer pathways to graduation and overseas further education. We develop students’ skills in independent research and analytical writing, we incorporate a global perspective in their courses of study, enabling them to further their skills as life-long learners and global citizens.
