Our academy comprises people from all walks of life who work together to bring their colourful experiences and backgrounds alive on campus, which in the process, shapes the school’s supportive and cohesive community. Our academic staff are all qualified, IB-trained, introducing diverse lessons to classes, and a passion for nurturing global, expansive mindsets in our young. From Kindergarten to High School, teachers are allowed relative autonomy and thus, are allowed to teach creatively, in alignment with the IB philosophy. Whether it is to steer lessons or to take a step back, students are constantly encouraged to get involved in teams, research and inquire alternative perspectives, challenge what they are told, and reach well beyond the textbook experience.
