Our STEAM program is based on the idea of educating students in five specific disciplines — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the five disciplines as discrete subjects, our program integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
Our STEAM module integrates traditional science and math education through a blended learning environment and shows students how science fits into everyday life. It teaches students computational abilities, critical thinking and focuses on real-world applications of problem solving & creativity to foster new ideas and skills to drive innovation.

Detailed information about course content and assessment criteria can be found in the relevant Curriculum Guide.
School also provides STEAM league activities for students, on weekends. It's increasingly recognized that initiatives such as extra-curricular Science, Arts & Math can greatly improve student engagement, teamwork ,while helping your child learn how abstract concepts, like mathematics, engineering, and computing actually work in practice.
