We engage and empower all in the pursuit of learning to ensure that together, as a supportive community of parents, faculty, and staff, we give each individual child “roots to grow and wings to fly”. Our campuses are hives of exploration, creative and critical thinking and are places where the joy of learning can be seen on smiling faces. We respond to the individuality, passions, and talents of each of our students. This is achieved whilst simultaneously building a reflective and open-minded culture that thrives on our abilities to collaborate and innovate.

The IB Diploma Programme (DP – Grades 11 & 12) is designed for students who want a well-rounded education. All DP students choose six courses that they will study for two years. Three of these courses will be Higher Level courses that are very rigorous. If students do well in these courses they can count as first year university credit courses. We have small classes, well trained teachers, and a university counselor for helping students choose a career path and apply to universities. These IB Diploma programme is recognized by the best universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and many more countries (http://www.ibo.org/benefits).
