How We Operate

Our goal to recruit a highly qualified, diverse teaching workforce supports the effort to maintain internationally recognized standards in curriculum and teaching.

Small class sizes ensure that students with distinct educational competencies’ and backgrounds receive the individual attention and care they require.

The school’s curriculum is based on active construction of meaning through rigorous coursework that is intellectually challenging and culturally appropriate. Students explore topics in depth through a method of inquiry, which allows them to ask and tackle meaningful questions.
There is great attention to social interactions within the curriculum, such as conversations, discussions, joint work, and debate. Such interactions provide opportunities for students to learn through observing the performance of others, receiving feedback about their own performance, hearing alternative points of view, and engaging in the exchange of ideas
