Is progressive, forward-thinking, and child-centered, using an integrated, interactive approach. Topics and themes are carefully planned to cross artificial subject barriers. This enables the student to have a realistic view of the world in which he/she lives, and needs to function successfully. Much of the teaching is based on the assumption that understanding is a fundamental requirement for any learning to take place. Thus hands-on experience and research-skills, where the role of the teacher is more effectively a facilitator for learning at our core. Students are encouraged to develop into independent learners with a strong desire to think critically.
