Hillside World Academy (HWA) was established in Singapore in 2006. We will continue to uphold the concept of running an East-West culture through International Baccalaureate (IB) programs at China International School.
The pronunciation of this abbreviation for HWA is similar to the pronunciation of the Chinese character “华”, which reflects our emphasis on learning Chinese and Chinese culture in the teaching process of the three sessions of the IB curriculum * . As an international school, we have students from more than 30 countries around the world and senior IB teachers from 15 countries.
As a forward-looking modern chemistry, we advocate that students have a spirit of inquiry and advocate that through a holistic approach to teaching, students should be committed to becoming lifelong learners. While imparting knowledge, teachers encourage students to actively participate in and boldly ask questions, and dare to break through the limitations of books.
The school adopts bilingual teaching in both English and Chinese. It also pays attention to students' learning of their mother tongue. Each student will receive language learning support. Our educational achievements are well-known and appreciated: The average score of the University Foundation Year (IBDP) continues to exceed the global average for many years. When you enter the campus, you will hear children from China and European countries learning Chinese and English at the same time, exciting and interesting. In our family-like campus, we hope that every student will be able to fulfill the mission of HWA with all their strength. When they are striding out of school, they will become compassionate, compassionate and considerate global citizens.
* HWA is an international school accredited by the International Baccalaureate (IB) and authorised to offer three sessions of the Preschool and PYP, MYP and DP programs.
