Curriculum Overview

The Australian International School is the only school in Singapore to offer a Australian, International curriculum, combining the Australian Curriculum with the world-renowned International Baccalaureate.  

Add to this our unique combination of world-class facilities, diverse student population and wide curriculum choices, and not only academic excellence but independence, responsibility and a first-hand appreciation of our globalised world will follow.

These wide curriculum choices combine challenging and enriching experiences with academic rigour and creative opportunities. From Nursery to Year 12, our students experience a wide variety of learning options to develop their individual talents and challenge their growing minds.


Our youngest students discover the fun of learning with a Reggio Emilia inspired approach through the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (ELYF) with facets of the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP).


Our 3 & 4 year old children learn through our holistic, inquiry-based curriculum, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). The Reggio Emilia inspired approach continues from Nursery and into Preschool. 

Elementary School

Here, students continue the PYP and build on their understanding of the world around them, principally through structured inquiry. Knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills, attitudes and action are integral to the six key areas of learning: Language, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, The Arts and Personal, Social and Physical Education. 

Secondary School

We offer a range of challenging academic programs that focus on a holistic education by connecting academic subjects with contextual relevance. We also emphasise the important issues relevant to adolescents in a global society. 

Year 6 to 8

Year 6 to 8 students study the Australian Curriculum mapped within a curriculum framework which is specifically tailored to the Australian International School.

Year 9 and 10

Students in Years 9 and 10 study and complete the Cambridge IGCSE– designed to ensure that they are equipped with all of the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to commence successfully the IB Diploma or HSC programs.

Years 11 & 12

In the final two years of study, learning choices continue to grow. We are authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) as well as the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (HSC), giving our Year 11 and 12 students a choice of rigorous and international university choices.
