IB Early Years Programme
The IB Early Years Programme is for children in Kindergarten 1 and 2 (K1 and K2) that are aged four to six years old. These two grade levels are known as Early Years. Early Years learning at ISS International School follows the IB PYP curriculum framework which incorporates current research and best practices in early childhood education.
Children participate in an inquiry-based programme that responds to their academic and developmental needs.
IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is for children aged 3 – 12 and nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.
Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the PYP challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts
(IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP)
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students aged 11-16.
The MYP is a comprehensive and rigorous framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.
The MYP is a five-year programme, which is most effective in preparing students for the Diploma programme.
(IB) Diploma Programme (DP)
The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is for students aged 16-19.
The programme aims to help students gain deep and broad based knowledge as well as important critical thinking and research skills. Students are supported to flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically and the programme is respected by leading universities across the globe.
Why study IB at ISS?
The IB programme has flourished exponentially in these past 50 years and many international and even local schools offer the IB Programme as the foundation of their curriculum.
What sets ISS International School apart is that we are one of the longest established three programme international schools in Singapore, serving the international community for over thirty years and offering IB programmes for almost twenty years.
The fundamentals of our academic delivery also differ.
- we believe and practice an inclusive education philosophy where everyone has an opportunity to express their viewpoints and have access to programmes,
- we create an empowering environment where our students are encouraged to develop and pursue their own sense of purpose,
- our highly trained teachers guide and nurture our students as they make this journey of self-discovery,
- delivering each lesson in a highly individualized and customized style to ensure that each student learns at their own pace and benefits fully from the learning.
We are fully committed to ensuring that each and every student at ISS realises their full potential and that we are there to guide them to reach that goal. This is what makes ISS International school.
We would like to share how we deilver each of our individual programmes in the PYP, MYP and DP with you. So please continue to select the appropriate school section that meets your current needs.
