Various learning engagements in all subjects and community life are designed to reflect our faith and to lead students to understanding and action.
IB Primary Years Program (PYP)
The IB PYP curriculum in HOPE Academy starts from K1 and provides opportunities for learning in Language, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, PSPE and the Arts (Music and Visual Art) to occur in a holistic way. Thus, our “Baby and Me” and PreK classes prepare students for their IB experience.
The aim of IB program is to develop internationally minded people with 10 personal qualities described in the IB Learner Profile:
Early Childhood Education (ECE)
The first five years of a child’s life is a critical period of development that forms the foundation of his/her future. School activities and all interactions that occur are opportunities to build positive habits and character.
HOPE Academy ECE program aim to build children’s enthusiasm for learning. We design the learning through play-based approach. Play provides benefits for cognitive, social, emotional and physical development for students from all socioeconomic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Through play, children actively construct meaning from their interactions with their physical and social worlds. Early learning in the PYP is a holistic learning experience that continuously integrate and connect prior and new knowledge and experiences in the most meaningful way to broaden their understandings about the world God created.
English is the language of instruction in all subjects except for Bahasa Indonesia and Mandarin. Students learn Bahasa Indonesia from 2 years old onwards. This provides a solid foundation for language development to be a bilingual student. Mandarin is taught from K3 upwards and is offered to students as an additional language.
