Curriculum Overview

At Danbo International Primary School, our Curriculum practices and opportunities are focused on the framework of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum. We integrate The IPC (International Primary Curriculum) objectives and principles as a learning manual to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the school.

Every step of the way, we give attention and provide the right interactions that build lifelong skills. We ensure each child become creative as they imagine, explore, coordinate self and environment, and apply learning to solve problems.
