THE CURRICULUM

Concordian International School works within the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework to deliver rigorous and challenging programs. Our course of study is drawn from both the IB and standards developed from around the world.

Our Nursery program welcomes students from the age of 2. Our Primary Years Program (PYP) runs from Kindergarten 1 to Grade 5. The PYP promotes a supportive environment in which each child’s potential is nurtured through close attention and positive reinforcement.

The Middle Years Program (MYP), from Grades 6 to 10, accentuates the interrelatedness of subject disciplines. Fundamental concepts are holistic education, communication and intercultural awareness.

The Diploma Program (DP) in Grades 11 and 12 is widely regarded as a passport to higher learning. The IB diploma is accepted by colleges and universities around the world.

A MULTI-LINGUAL WORLD

At Concordian we believe that an immersion approach develops language proficiency as well as intercultural awareness, critical thinking and problem solving. Students completing the Primary Years immersion program enter the Middle Years fluent in two to three languages and with an active appreciation of the world around them.

English is the primary language of instruction from Grades 5 to 12. Mandarin and Thai are taught as world languages. Other languages such as French and Spanish are offered in secondary school.

Students with no previous background in Chinese may enter at any grade level. To assist language development we offer additional support in English, Chinese and Thai. Our library features a large collection of print and audio-visual materials in all target languages, and a welcoming atmosphere that promotes a love of reading among students and parents alike.
