Primary Years Programme

Our Primary program extends students’ Early Years foundation by challenging students with increasingly complex, real-world concepts and projects to drive their learning. Teachers plan transdisciplinary units of inquiry that integrate traditional subject areas, and there is an increased emphasis on empowering students to guide their own, independent learning.

"The way that teachers teach me is a brand new way. The program is more communication-based and the small classes help students get to know each other better."
