In the middle school years, curriculum focuses on helping students to become increasingly independent learners and preparing them to succeed in high school and beyond. The emphasis is laid on building up the structured, student-centered and enquiry-based foundation laid at the Primary level.
The curriculum is research oriented and learning opportunities are provided through worksheets in the classroom, laboratory time, library time, computer time and small group discussion time.
Personality development is stressed through development of academic knowledge, the ability to question, sensory experiences and a honing of creative expressions.
Emphasis is made on group work including story time, lecture demonstrations, large group discussions, conceptual explanations and group goal setting.
