With a maximum of 168 students, The Grange Institution provides a private and enriching learning experience that is not like any other international school in Singapore. The school believes in the transferability of skills and knowledge by equipping students with well-developed interpersonal and critical thinking skills, and in teaching them to find learning enjoyable.
Teachers at The Grange Institution allow students to build their confidence to take ownership of their learning process by establishing a comfortable and open environment for collaboration, exchange of ideas and constructive debates with classmates.
The Grange Institution prides itself on its philosophy of delivering quality education to inspire excellence, and developing responsible, respectful and innovative members of society.
Teachers continually encourage students to seek answers to any doubts they may have by performing their own research back home, before bringing a solution or idea back to school. Through feedback and open communication, teachers at The Grange Institution frequently find opportunities for students to build their confidence in communication, literacy and creative skills by supporting transdisciplinary learning within a safe and stimulating environment.
“We can see improvements in her personality and confidence,” share parents Kojiro and Kaori Tanaka of their daughter Haruhi, who is 5 years old and in Grade 1. “She has grown in positivity, creativity and curiosity for the environment. All this comes from good guidance and coaching from teachers.”
Learning is a lifelong goal, and the Institution’s curriculum, known as The Grange Advantage, aims to develop and instill in their students the “advantage” of continuous learning. Teachers give each student the opportunity to present and speak to their fellow peers.
Instead of stifling their creativity, teachers encourage each student to take individual ownership of their learning by taking the lead in the classroom or project groups, allowing them to flourish their creativity, whether it is in the visual or performing arts.
And, through the integration of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the school’s curriculum, the teachers ensure that students are well-aware of real-world problems and issues, and challenge them to be relevant in the society and world they live in.
