Middle School

Middle School Introduction

The BWYA middle school, is an excellent place for students to start their secondary school learning experience, as they develop into principled, open-minded thinkers and responsible individuals, who are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in life. To this end, the school offers a wide range of learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.

Learning in the classroom, focuses on students making enquiries into local and global issues to develop a solid understanding of key concepts, and higher-order thinking skills. As such, instructions and assessments are delivered with students making investigations through research, group work, projects and field trips, evaluating different ideas and perspectives, and presenting their own understanding and solutions. 

Outside of the classroom, our learners are exposed to an even greater variety of learning opportunities. The Clubs Programme helps students cultivate an interest or a hobby, like the technological challenges of the robotics club, or developing a real passion for arts in the a cappella club, or engaging in dealing with global issues with the Model United Nation Club.

Similarly, the Athletics Programme engages our students in competitive sports, developing team spirit and character amongst our players. The Classroom Without Walls Programme see our learners going to different destinations both domestic and international to explore the world for experiential learning. In addition, our learners all actively engage themselves in SA and CAS activities and projects; these SA and CAS actions help our learners develop into caring and responsible people.

Chinese Culture Studies Programme

Another learning experience, which greatly contributes to our student development particularly with regard to language and culture awareness, is the Chinese Culture Studies Programme. In addition to learning one’s mother tongue throughout the MYP and DP Programmes, the Grades 6-8 students also have the chance to take courses such as Chinese calligraphy, Chinese History, Chinese Moral Studies and the Intangible Culture Heritage course. These classes aim to cultivate not only a real appreciation of the culture and history of the hosting country, but more importantly, they serve as a way for students to compare different cultural perspectives so as to develop a much deeper cross-cultural understanding in their studies.
