Students' natural curiosity is nurtured through hands-on experiences and opportunities to explore the world in inventive ways. A sense of wonder is inspired by class lessons and interaction with the wider world.


In-depth learning experiences allow students to master new concepts and critical-thinking skills, expanding their knowledge and prompting further inquiry.
