Our Team

Hillside World Academy (HWA) is committed to recruiting specialist teachers and staff who are devoted and excited about their areas of expertise, and are passionate about providing quality education and support for students across all levels from Kindergarten to Primary School, and Middle School to High School.

Every teacher who works with us is fully qualified and trained in the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. They come from more than 15 countries around the world, and bring with them a wealth of experience in and passion for educating and nurturing youth. Aligned with HWA’s global vision and outlook, we ensure that all staff are dedicated to cultivating in students the importance of intercultural understanding and respect.

Faculty staff rigorously apply academic discipline, and the curricula for different levels in the HWA programme are designed to not only educate and enrich, but also to go beyond the textbook experience. Using a contemporary, heuristic approach, teachers encourage students to explore and enquire at their own pace, and to constantly think critically and challenge what they are told. With a comprehensive, collaborative, and creative learning journey, it is at HWA that global legacies are built.
