We will have a bilingual curriculum. At the core of our curriculum will be the Chinese National Curriculum for Chinese Language, Math, Science and Social Studies. Our additional in-class curriculums will adopt the best practices from overseas scopes and sequences. They will be supported by English as an Additional Language (EAL) teachers to provide assistance for those students who might be struggling with their in-class activities. Likewise, there will be Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) teachers to support those students whose first language is not Chinese. Additionally, our K-12 curriculum will include art and crafts, music, dance and theatre, PSPE, library, STEM, robotics, computer programming and other engaging and exciting learning experiences.

In the MYP they complete a community project and a personal project, and in the DP they study Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) and complete an Extended Essay. Similarly, they provide opportunities for our students to demonstrate their ability to use their attained academic knowledge in a practical real-life setting.
