LOWER MIDDLE SCHOOL is a “bridge” between Primary and Secondary. Students are taught by subject specialist teachers and the project–based learning approach and collaborative learning environment, promoted in Primary, is maintained.

Singapore Maths focuses on developing good and solid logical thinking, aiming for depth, not speed, and developing problem solving skills.
It has became a well-known technique since Singapore students are ranked top in the TIMSS and PISA tests (international surveys).
The way the questions and problems are presented in the Singapore maths programme are aiming at mastering and complete understanding of a topic, not just learning and applying the formulas. The questions are various and increasing in difficulty. The approach is based on 3 steps (concrete, drawings and then abstract) which allow students to integrate the keys of abstract thinking, which is so important, and also so difficult, in maths learning.
