Aspects of more formal and interactive classroom learning are adopted at the Preparatory Stage, in order to lay a solid groundwork across subjects, including reading, writing, speaking, physical education, art, languages, science, and mathematics.

The curriculum at the Middle Stage emphasizes on learning and discussion of the more abstract concepts in each subject, experiential learning, critical thinking, and subject integration thereby laying foundation for a multidisciplinary study at the secondary stage.

Experiential learning, including hands-on learning, arts-integrated and sports-integrated education, story-telling-based pedagogy are a part of the standard pedagogy within each subject at all levels with an aim to shift classroom transactions towards competency-based learning.
