The Nursery and Reception levels provide a sound pre-school foundation based on a quality international curriculum, in order to coach the children with a solid base with which to excel at the subsequent Primary and Secondary levels. The Nursery and Reception levels are suitable for children aged three, four, and five years old respectively.
The Primary School level caters to students from Years 1 to 6. United International School uses the Cambridge Primary Years Programme (PYP), otherwise known as the Key Stage 1 (Years 1 to 3) and Key Stage 2 (Years 4 to 6), which is a comprehensive and creative, enquiry-based curriculum, that serves more than 10,000 schools in 160 countries worldwide. The PYP enables students to develop their confidence and possess a zeal for exploring new and creative ideas.
Meanwhile, the Secondary School level caters to students starting from Year 7 up until Year 11. The school’s Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9) programme aims to prepare students for the rigours of upcoming exam years, by ensuring the kids are well acquainted with problem solving, critical and analytical thinking, and the ability to convey their ideas in an articulate and persuasive way. The Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) programme centres around the IGCSE qualifications, a world-renowned British educational programme.
The school firmly believes that each child is unique and provides each young learner with the right environment to learn and flourish.
