Middle School

The Middle School curriculum provides a comprehensive academic and behavioural foundation that prepares students for the demands they will encounter in the Upper School. The curriculum addresses the whole child by encouraging special talents and accommodating each student’s learning style.

Image Description

At the Middle and High School, we are offering a holistic program guided by three pillars of learning: Academic Rigor, 21-Century Skills, and Living Environment. The three pillars are supported by courses based on American curriculum standards, with AP as the capstone. We are currently offering AP Math, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, and AP Biology and will add more AP courses in the future. 

In addition, our program has a focus on inquiry-based instruction, which aims to connect student learning to real-world, global, and multicultural issues related to the different disciplines. Through inquiry, we encourage students to develop learning and thinking skills that are critical to study and life after middle and high school.

Our Middle School teachers are nurturing and patient as they challenge the intellectual abilities of each student. We have created a highly successful learning environment enhanced by talented and energetic teachers. Class sizes in the Middle School are capped at 20 students and allow for a significant amount of teacher-student interaction.


Middle School subjects will include:

English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language acquisition (Mandarin), Health and Physical Education, Art and Music.  Students take exploratory subjects (one each quarter - Computers, STEAM, Journalism, Language Acquisition, Speech Making/Debate).
