HWA International School (formerly Hillside World Academy) aspires to be a global institution that integrates the discipline and rigour of Eastern pedagogy, with the inquiring, creative, and collaborative values of Western pedagogy, via the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. Our vision, mission and guiding statements reflect what we stand for and aspire to be as a whole school, and can be observed in all aspects of school life from activities in the classroom, to excursions outside of campus, to the curricula, even to the way we communicate with one another in our tight-knit community in Singapore.
To be an international school integrating Eastern and Western cultures through the IB philosophy.
We seek to provide a holistic learning environment that develops our students into caring, thinking and morally upright bilingual global citizens.
Our Core Values
Integrity | Passion | Excellence | Internationalism
We embrace passion, integrity and internationalism to create a holistic learning environment as we continue to strive for excellence.
What Sets This School Apart
HWA is a bilingual and bicultural school; the emphasis is on character development, social-emotional balance and to be an enabler. The spirit of IB is constantly being nurtured and learning experience is built by the child to prepare to adapt to the new world.
Children are taught to participate in the outreach program organised by the CAS leader, there is no racial discrimination as practices in Singapore, a multi-racial society. HWA kids learn to create, raise funds and return back to society in their little way, no standard set, and no counter to measure, just give from the hearts.
