Middle and Senior School Curriculum

The curriculum is designed and packaged in a manner that challenges students to ask questions, enhance skills, conduct in-depth research, analyse findings, build conceptual understanding, share their learning in a variety of ways that reflect on their responsibility as a part of global community.
