Early Childhood Academy
Along with the core curricular elements of English, Mathematics and Science, students enjoy two periods each of PE, music and Art every week. They visit the computer laboratory regularly throughout the week so that Information Technology is embedded in their learning across the curriculum. Students also have access to a well run library.
Through the PE programme, students are encouraged to participate in team sports with a view to representing their school against other International schools. The music programme affords students the opportunity to participate in two large productions a year in which their musical talents are showcased. Art classes thrive and students have achieved success in International Art competitions.
Embedded in the curriculum, and an integral part of the daily life at primary level, are the ESLR’s and the Virtue programmes. Regular assemblies at lower and upper primary levels embrace the Virtues programme while celebrating student successes. The sense of “Family” is very much in evidence as positive interaction between students of different age groups is encouraged through initiatives such as “Book Buddies” and sports events.
Teda International School’s secondary program begins with grade 7 and ends with grade 12. At times, the school will refer to grades 7 through 9 as lower secondary and grades 10 through 12 as upper secondary. Students in grades 7 through 9 are required to take five core academic subjects. These include math, science, English, history/geography, and Chinese language. Students will also take specialty classes in the areas of art, music, computers and physical education.
Upper secondary students in grades 10 through 12 take four core academic subjects. These include math, science, English, and history/geography. They may also choose from a number of elective offerings in the areas of visual arts, performing arts, technology, language, and/or athletics. In addition, upper secondary students may opt for advanced placement (AP) coursework. AP courses are university level courses that prepare students for an end-of-year exam. Students performing well on the end-of-year exam may earn university level credit thus reducing the time of study required to earn a university diploma.
