Elementary (1st -5th Grade)

IMA students in 1st through 5th Grade are invited to be active participants in their educational journey. Although the curriculum design and academic standards are set by the school, individualized student plans are tailored according to each child’s area of passion, strength and areas of growth.
Balancing passion with purposeful engagements, learning takes place in both English and Mandarin with the support of a Lower and Upper Elementary Teacher. Lead Teachers partner in the classroom with a Mandarin speaking Assistant Teacher. Cultivating a bilingual model, students are immersed in a dual-language environment where they receive instruction in small group and individual settings.

Children build upon basic skills through sequential lessons across mathematics, reading, writing and language. Students not only present deliverables aligned with academic milestones, but further focus on the thought process and how to think like confident readers, writers and mathematicians. This serves as the foundation for inquiry and project-based learning. Blending social studies, science and cultural studies, units are designed to be multi-disciplinary. Both a growth mindset and a global mindset layer upon one another as an entrepreneurial mind and spirit shine.

Elementary students at IMA are encouraged to take ownership as they embrace ongoing reflection while applying tools and strategies throughout the goal setting process. Action is paired with communication as confident learners emerge.
