Our Primary School precinct is a natural progression from the crucial first stages of learning experienced in our Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC).


In the Primary School, our learning programme is built around each child as a unique individual, with every student recognized for possessing their own abilities, experiences and interests. Crucial to their learning development is the utilization of the IB Primary Years Programme, a framework for our education which meets the highest of international education standards.


ISA Science City International school is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.
