Elementary School

CIA FIRST International School believes that elementary learning is one of the most vital parts of nurturing a child for life ahead. We believe that children experimenting and unearthing concepts and processes themselves is the best way to develop well-rounded individuals, rather than simply memorizing facts.

CIA FIRST believes that working as part of a team is an essential life skill and the school puts emphasis on ensuring children can operate collectively among their peers. This helps build the confidence of children and also leads them to communicate their ideas clearly on an individual basis.  

As well as introducing children to subjects including maths, IT and combined natural sciences, the school begins integrating the 16 “Habits of Mind” learning process, which serve to aid students in working through real-life problems by using intentional strategies to gain positive outcomes.
