Our dual language curriculum boosts learning potential

Giving students the chance to follow two complementary learning styles by incorporating two different languages into our teaching system can give children the best academic foundation to set them up for future success. Aside from the obvious benefits of linguistic prowess, the St Louis approach helps increase practical skills, from multi-tasking and problem solving, while inspiring a natural curiosity about the wider world.

As educators we have a duty to help our children become active, globally-minded citizens. The world is constantly changing and, as what parents want for their children continues to evolve, it’s important that we adjust with them.
