Academics

Our K–12 academic curriculum is shaped by our mission. Through our Academic programme, students develop intellectual habits and passions that stay with them for life. Learning goals in languages, mathematics, sciences, the Arts, humanities, technology and physical education build logically through each grade, preparing students for the next academic challenge and for life beyond school.
 
The conceptual nature of our curriculum, which focuses on ideas that can transfer across the world, supports students who are joining us from different countries, educational systems and backgrounds. For example, while the content of a chosen text in English or a specific time period in History may vary between educational systems, the concepts that underpin that subject area remain the same. The learning is therefore transferable between systems. 
 
Our academic curriculum aims to develop the specific conceptual understandings necessary to build Peace and a Sustainable Future, educating for a better world. The conceptual understandings are derived from UNESCO’s Education for Sustainable Development Goals. Along with the skills and qualities of our Learner Profile, many of these concepts are reinforced through linkages to the other four elements of our Leaning Programme.
