Through an inquiry process, students gain essential knowledge and skills from a variety of different subject areas by exploring globally relevant concepts, and by engaging in appropriate action, thus allowing them to be involved in their learning. Our skillful teachers start each unit from the student’s own experience and understanding, and following a constructivist approach, build and develop further knowledge, skills, and attitudes.
The transdisciplinary nature of the programme enables students to learn the skills, explore the knowledge and develop conceptual understanding within a relevant and authentic context. Teachers strive to create and maintain classroom climates that are inclusive, foster the development of positive attitudes and international-mindedness.
The early years are a critical period of development where academic, physical and social foundations are established. Elmwood’s Junior School provides a unique environment where your daughter will experience the best possible start to her school years. Our School is a happy, energetic place where students feel secure and comfortable in taking risks to develop their potential. We provide a broad range of opportunities for girls to discover and extend their interests and passions. When you start something at a young age, there’s no telling where it can lead you.
