Both purpose-built sites are supported by an innovative curriculum, which uses an inquiry-based and skills-focused approach to learning. The school’s program is designed to foster a lifelong love of learning in students who will grow up to be informed, inspired, compassionate people who act for the good of all. The program is implemented by the experienced faculty, consisting up of teachers from 18 different countries.
