An Inquiry-Based Program

Inquiry is at the heart of our teaching and learning. We encourage children to wonder and explore, to take risks and to be unconstrained by right answers. Our curriculum is deliberately designed to develop our students’ intellectual capacity and nurture their curiosity. We stretch our students and offer them opportunities to innovate, create and play together within a community of learners.
