American Pacific International School Primary Campus follows a mission to be a community of passionate educators who inspire, nurture and maximize each student’s potential to become a global citizen and a happy life long learner.
Pupils who study at this primary campus often go on to further their secondary studies at the American Pacific International School – Main Campus, which consists of the elementary and secondary schools.
The school has four core values – community, diversity, responsibility and balance. Graduates will also learn values such as acceptance, and appreciation of people and their beliefs. They are accountable for their actions towards others and are committed to treating everyone with respect and integrity.
American Pacific International School Primary Campus caters to students starting from pre-nursery and on to grade 1 to grade 6. The school follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) as its primary schooling curriculum and emphasises on learning beyond the classroom for a well-rounded growth.
The IB programme is an international, transdisciplinary programme designed for the holistic development of each child. It encompasses the social, physical, emotional and cultural needs of students as individuals. Young learners are assured of some of the best learning experiences and outcomes from the early childhood education emphasised via the IB PYP.
The school promotes active learning by means of teaching self-help skills within the confines of a safe and caring environment that inspires a positive outlook along with the confidence to develop pupils into lifelong lovers of learning.
The primary programme at APIS is primarily driven by enquiry and takes a student-centric approach to prioritising the young learners’ success as they begin to embrace the values of diversity, responsibility, balance, and community. Students begin to make “real world” connections when they draw upon their past experiences and lessons, and this can lead to fostering new learning patterns, building a stronger school community, and becoming a useful, participating member of society.
This campus also puts a lot of emphasis on parents and involves them in their child’s learning process. The school has well-established guidelines on how parents should support their children and support the school. Parents work in tandem with the school for the holistic development of their children.
