The DIS curriculum is based on Singapore's Ministry of Education Curriculum Framework, Preparing Your Child for Tomorrow. The desired outcomes of primary education are:

  • Subject disciplines comprise subject areas such as languages, humanities & the arts, and mathematics & sciences, designed to give your child a good grounding in different fields of study
  • Knowledge skills focus on developing your child's thinking, process and communication skills. Knowledge skills are taught through a variety of subjects and often through a project work approach. This enables students to use the full range of knowledge skills, work togeter and clearly demonstrate what they have learnt.
  • Character development is facilitated through daily theacher-student interactions, as well as programmes in the non-academic curriculum. They focus on instilling sound valuex in your child to take him through life as a responsible adult.
