The well-researched School curriculum - based on Integrated Learning Approach - promotes creativity, curiosity, determination, independence, self-reliance, adaptability and teamwork in each student.
Integrated Learning Approach is an activity-based learning process where experimentation, self discovery, high level of engagement and hands-on experience are given importance, in addition to exam preparation. This interdisciplinary approach creates eager and active learners who are exposed to a stimulating learning environment and engage in a wide range of developmentally-appropriate activities.
Integrated Learning Approach aims to nurture thinking, analyzing and learning skills in pupils so that they can acquire a holistic view of the world and excel in tomorrow’s complex world.
