Primary School
Student Life

An inquiry-based, project-based curriculum that combines the original Laurus STEM curriculum with an international standard primary curriculum.
Our small class sizes and high academic standards prepare our students for a global career.

Innovative Education

Science

“Why? For what reason?” By asking these questions, developing a hypothesis, repeating the experiments, and observing the results, we can objectively analyse things from different angles, therefore gaining the ability to think independently. A keen understanding of science deepens the inquiring mind and sharpens intuition. By emphasizing the addition of science experiments and observations in our curriculum, we provide the basis for the development of students' critical thinking.

STEM

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. With a focus on interdisciplinary learning, we are raising talented young adults with the critical thinking and judgment skills necessary to create and pursue new opportunities in the 21st century.

Programming

By following the Cambridge ICT syllabus for programming and supplementing it with additional activities, our students learn everything they need to know about variables, algorithms, strings, loops, and syntax. All of our students go on to program real systems and real robots, ensuring that they are ready for the world of tomorrow.

Entrepreneurship

Our modern world places less emphasis on choosing lifetime professions. Children are encouraged to create solutions to their own or other people’s real world problems. As a school, we are here to guide our students in the process of learning the skills needed for problem-solving, creativity, originality, and risk-taking and to enable them to utilize those qualities in a successful career.

Japanese

All of our classes are conducted entirely in English except for the three Japanese language periods a week. For students whose primary language is not Japanese, or for students who do not speak Japanese, we offer classes tailored to their level.
