The curricula at OWIS are designed to provide students with an academic experience that is both challenging and rewarding. From early childhood through preparation for university, our curricula and learning atmosphere offers a rich journey towards these goals. It helps students develop careful thinking, inclination toward innovation, and international mindedness needed to become responsible citizens in an increasingly global economy.
The IB PYP curriculum is ideal for our early childhood learners and primary school students from the ages of 3-11 because it prioritises hands-on learning opportunities. The students in our Early Childhood and primary school programmes are able to explore their world while learning about fundamental concepts in their own way.
The IB PYP curriculum also stresses the importance of developing emotional and social skills. Students in our early childhood and primary school programmes develop a respect for themselves and others as they learn to interact in a community setting.
In Grades 6 to 8, we follow the Modified Cambridge Curriculum, based on the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme. This has been adapted to fit the international school setting at OWIS. This curriculum allows students to acquire knowledge and develop an appreciation for people of all cultures and backgrounds.
The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum for Grades 9 to 10 is known for its rigorous instruction for students between the ages of 14-16. It is a globally recognised qualification through which students can learn academic rigour and gain a deeper understanding of different subjects.
In addition, we offer everyday life skills through our personal, social and health education classes.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, or IBDP, is the curriculum offered for Grade 11 and Grade 12 at OWIS. The IBDP is recognised around the world as a world-class pre-university programme, due to the fact that it prepares students to excel academically as well as being ready for our ever-changing world.
It is a comprehensive curriculum that takes two years to complete. Upon completing the coursework, students must take final examinations before graduating.
