Learning in CAIS classrooms is framed through the three IB programmes, the PYP, the MYP and the DP. The IBO has developed these programmes over decades based on research and practice. Learning through these programmes is based on a socio-constructivism learning model where students play an active, central role in constructing their own understandings- i.e. learning.
All Early Years and Primary students study through the IB Primary Years Programme with a focus on Inquiry-led learning. All Early Years classes have a qualified teacher with PYP training, a Teaching Assistant (TA) and a nanny.
All Primary students learn through the IB Primary Years Programme with a focus on Inquiry-led learning. Primary classes have a qualified PYP teacher and a Teaching Assistant (TA).
All students follow a curriculum that adopts the Middle Years Programme (MYP) framework. Students have a wide range of MYP subjects, which are supported through some additional CAIS Middle School classes.
Depending on individual strengths some take separate subjects (Certificates) whilst others take the 3 HL and 3 SL subjects including the Core, which make up the IB Diploma.
CAIS students have a wide range of opportunities to develop a range of soft skills and the IB Learner Profile Attributes outside of the classroom thorough the extensive Extra Curricular Activities programme, the CAIS Houses and the Outdoor Education programme.
CAIS students discover the importance of learning through hands-on experience, working cooperatively and looking after our natural environment. These lessons are to prepare more responsible citizens for the future to better protect the Earth's natural resources.
