Primary School and the Singapore Curriculum

On the 30th of November 2016, The Jiangsu - Singapore Cooperative Management Council witnessed the signing of the cooperation project between Wuxi International School and Harbridge International Singapore. Harbridge is the long-term partner providing curriculum and school management for WIS. Harbridge, founded in 1994, has supported the success of more than 30 Junior colleges, secondary and primary schools in Singapore. Since 2002, almost 300,000 students have gone through Harbridge programmes.

Singapore has a strong education system. Singapore students aim high and they achieve very good results. This is recognised around the world and Singapore students consistently top international assessments of core curriculum subjects.

We are building on these strengths here at WIS as we prepare our next generation for the future. This is a future that brings tremendous opportunity, especially in Asia, but it will also bring many changes that we cannot foresee today. The task of WIS is to give our young people the chance to develop the skills, character and values that will enable them to continue to do well in this future.

PISA

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a triennial international survey which aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students.
