Our secondary programs provide children with the opportunity to experience, learn and socialize in a relaxed and multicultural environment. At Prime School you may find children creating a robot or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, helping each other study or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.
