Learning

We provide a challenging student-centered, internationally minded, and English language learning environment where children across all grade levels are encouraged and supported to become independent learners and leaders.

 

Students at ASW follow the three core International Baccalaureate programmes throughout their learner journey at ASW. These are the PYP (PreK-Grade 5), the MYP (Grades 6-10) and the IB DP (Grades 11 & 12). These programmes develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.

PYP

Students in the Early Years and Elementary Schools follow the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). This program nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.
