SJI International Elementary School has received International Primary Curriculum (IPC) accreditation at the highest level.
The Catholic international school received its certificate of IPC Mastering level accreditation on March 6 at a ceremony on Kuala Lumpur.
According to the school, it joins a select group of only 11 schools worldwide to have achieved this status.
The IPC is one of the fastest-growing curricula in the world today, in use in nearly 1,800 schools in 92 different countries. It is a skills-based curriculum with a focus on built-in personal learning goals and international mindedness.
Learning with the IPC has a global focus – helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at learning from the perspective of other people in other countries.
The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children.
SJI International Elementary School has used the IPC since it opened in 2008.
“Achieving Mastering level accreditation is recognition of the excellence of our staff and their commitment to a forward thinking, skills-based, child-centred curriculum,” said principal Kevin Hannah.
