Cambridge Primary

In primary school, English and mathematics are studied in single grade classes. All other subjects are studied in thematic units of work in combined grades. Students will learn mainly along the Cambridge Primary Program, but will also have IPC available as part of their studies. At the end of grade 5 (Year6), students will take the Cambridge Checkpoint to assess their level of understanding of what they have learned. We also assess the students' English reading level and math level through another benchmark test each term, so that no student will be left behind in their studies. For gifted students, we allow them to challenge and study higher grade levels.

 

In the IPC, students will cover two units of work, covering 12 units in a rotating program over two years. In all cases, the students will be assessed according to recognized age-appropriate attainment targets. The targets currently used in the school are the IPC mileposts, applied as follows:

Cambridge Lower Secondary (Middle School)

Our lower secondary homeroom class is held with multiple grades. However, subjects are studied in their grade level working towards the Cambridge Lower Secondary qualification.

At the end of grade 8 (Year 9), students will take the Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint to assess their level of understanding of what they have learned in middle school. Along with checking their understanding, it has the purpose of having students themselves know about what they fulfill and what they need to improve on. This will give the students an opportunity to prepare and strengthen their weaknesses before moving up to high school. We also assess the students' English reading level and math level through another benchmark test each term, so that no student will be left behind in their studies. For gifted students, we allow them to challenge and study higher grade levels.
