Class Groups

Unlike most schools where children are assigned a class based on their ages, we encourage collaborative learning where we classify and enrol children of different ages in the same learning group (class) based on their academic and socioemotional competence adn not based on their age. For instance,  a 5 year old can be enrolled in a Grade 1 or 2 class group if he or she displays competences in the intelligence milestones we set for the child during accessment and enrolment.  This collaborative and competency approach encourages bright and gifted children to stay competitively and continuously challenged throughout school and more importantly to inspire struggling students to work hard and aspire to reach their fullest potential .
