As the premier Johor international school, we focus on teaching our international students by following a globally recognised International curriculum. This is the British IGCSE International curriculum using the University of Cambridge syllabus.
In addition, a different but closely integrated wing of the school follows the Malaysian National Curriculum programme.
Consequently, Ara Schools currently provide for the educational needs of approximately 120 students who are aged 5 to 16 years. There are students of many different nationalities whose families are resident in the Johor Bahru area, hence the School offers a truly international learning environment to every one of them.
The teaching ethos throughout the school is that through our emphasis on developing a well balanced pupil focused learning and teaching programme, the children from Ara are positively encouraged to be communicative, expressive, creative, motivated and confident.
We believe that this approach is ideal …
The Ara School Dinner & Concert 2009 we are glad to say was a success from the feedback we received from parents. I would like to convey my sincere appreciation to all the staff and students for a job well done. It takes excellent teamwork to have run smoothly and I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I would also like to thank the parents for taking the precious time of your busy schedules to show up in full force in support of your children and the school.
