EtonHouse International School Orchard is a small school with big dreams for its students. Read on to find out how the school brings out the best in every child who walks through its doors…
With around 300 students, EtonHouse International School Orchard is considered one of Singapore’s smaller international schools. However, its size has never been a limiting factor for the school to deliver high quality education to its students. In fact, it allows EtonHouse Orchard to offer students a highly personalised school experience from Year 1 till Year 13.
Here are some reasons why your child could benefit from studying at a boutique International Baccalaureate (IB) World School like EtonHouse Orchard.
1. Your child will get a tailored learning experience
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach at EtonHouse Orchard. Every student enjoys a personalised education that’s based on their passion, interest, and strengths. This is one of the biggest advantages that the school delivers, as its small size also means small class sizes with low student-teacher ratios. Every teacher in EtonHouse Orchard knows their students’ interests and competencies. This allows them to tailor lessons accordingly, giving students more opportunities to pursue their interests. The school also has an excellent English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme for students who are non-native speakers, as each student receives personalised support from their EAL teachers to develop their competencies in the language very rapidly.
2. It’s a school where everyone knows each other
Imagine a school where everyone greets your child by their name. This is what your child can expect from their schooling experience at EtonHouse Orchard. The school has a close-knit community that is inclusive and supportive of each other. If a diverse school community is what you want for your child, EtonHouse Orchard has a student population from 40 different nationalities. Being a small school helps each and every student fit in, as there’s a strong sense of community where everyone’s unique background and personality are embraced by each other. It could be a very daunting experience every time a new student walks into a new school and class. The tight knit community enables new students at EtonHouse Orchard to feel welcome and comfortable right from the start, as well as quickly integrate and adapt to its school environment.
3. Pastoral care and career guidance are provided
Academic success is just one of the many things that EtonHouse Orchard strives to help its students achieve. Apart from a strong academic pathway of IB Primary Years Programme, IGCSE and IB Diploma, the school aims to provide its students with a holistic education, which means their physical health and social-emotional wellbeing are also taken care of. Students have weekly Physical Education classes at external sports venues, which allow them to access a wider range of sports activities. They also have the opportunity to pursue their passion and develop interests through their self-initiated projects and various co-curricular activities, such as basketball, archery, Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, lego robotics, and more. Counsellors and specialists are available to offer emotional support and even university as well as career guidance when it’s time to make the transition from school to college.
