Integrating Eastern
and Western Values

What's HWA Campus life like?

We are HWA.

HWA is a pioneering international Chinese school in Singapore.
Hillside World Academy (HWA) was established in 2006 as the Chinese International School in Singapore, and continues to uphold the global vision that integrates Eastern and Western values, through the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy.

Welcome to HWA

Hillside World Academy (HWA) are one of the few IB World Schools offering the IB Continuum of international education from 3-19 years old, through the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and IB Diploma Programme (DP).

Our belief is that quality education can be achieved when you integrate pedagogical values of the East and West, through the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.


Why Choose HWA?

We are a very niche, community-based academy. Our modest student body and class sizes allow us to focus not only on everyday operations, but also on each and every student.

HWA Learning Environment

The Curriculum

There are more than 70,000 educators work for IB schools worldwide, and more than 5,000 schools have chosen IB programmes because of its rigorous content and emphasis on student development.

The unique Bilingualism and Biculturalism Model, designed by Hillside World Academy (HWA), supports the development of bilingual and cross-cultural skills.

HWA prioritises the wellbeing of our students above all. Throughout the school term, our school nurse is stationed on campus from Mondays to Fridays, 8am to 5pm.

The Parent Support Group (PSG) was established in 2011 to be much more than just an ordinary association of parents whose children attend school at the Hillside World Academy (HWA).

To bring out the best in our students, HWA offers excellent learning spaces for work and play.
