Founded in the year 1999, Rosemount International School is a Singapore based private international school that provides Preparatory (early years) and Junior School (primary years) programme for the children.
Rosemount presently has five learning levels which include Prep 1, 2, 3 and Grade 1 and Grade 2. Formerly known Rosemount Kindergarten, RIS is an International School that provides a child-centred and inquiry-based curriculum for the early and primary years. The school founders, Alannah and Cheryl Young, provide that personal touch and high level of care that makes their early years students stand out when they move on to the next scholastic level.
Students are encouraged to explore, learn and communicate in a positive and stimulating learning environment. It is an academic institution that holds firm to the practices of instilling a strong desire to learn in their students. Apart from focusing on the area of academics, RIS also educates their students on the importance of exceptional behaviour and character to help them become individuals who can contribute positively to society.
The inquiry-centric academic philosophy motivates students to learn through genuine questioning, discovery, and communication by means of an integrated and interdisciplinary learning methodology. Their central premise of instilling a life-long love of learning in each student, is tested constantly with a developmental system where the teaching and comprehension is coupled with a stimulating and varied curriculum.
Being a Prepatory School and Junior School, the class room environment is critical- and the classroom vibe of the Rosemount classroom is safe, secure, and patient with their understanding, yet is challenging and motivating enough to motivate the pupils to push themselves beyond their comfort limits.
The academic body at RIS is well-balanced between local and international teachers. Teachers are well-trained and experienced in Early childhood and Primary education. Their curriculum consists of English, mathematics, science, society and environment, creative arts, health, physical education and personal development. Mandarin is also offered to the children in addition to this. One of the initiative taken by RIS is to organise holiday programmes and after school activities for their students.
The activities coordinated vary from sports, drama, music, dance, art and science. These activities are conducted either in classrooms or learning spaces. They also have a special parent and child programme for the enrolled students from the age group 2 months to 2 years. While playgroup is an opportunity for the children to have new experiences and develop social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills; for parents, it is a great chance to meet families of other children, develop friendship, share experience and spend quality time with children.
