Academics and Languages
Our students enjoy spending time outside class to enrich their abilities in different languages, deepen their academic competencies, and strengthen their debating skills. We offer a broad range of languages and academic clubs to support these goals and interests.
Academics and Languages
With over 60 nationalities represented in our school, our students speak many languages, which contributes to the vibrancy and rich texture of our diverse school community. Our students are learning Chinese, French, German, Spanish, or Korean. We also provide extra support to our non-native English speakers through our ‘English as an Additional Language’ (EAL) department, helping them to practice and quickly become skilled communicators. 

Our thriving academic clubs include the World Scholar’s Club, Maths Competitions, History Clinic, Bookworms Club, Chinese Panda Reading Club, and Eco-Committee, among others. 

Model United Nations (MUN) is a popular choice among our secondary students, where they engage in the simulation activities of the United Nations, practicing their skills in diplomacy, international relations, and public speaking, and increasing their awareness of global issues.
