The Primary School starts from Grade 1 to Grade 5, for children between the age of 6 and 10 years old.

Excelsior International School follows an inquiry-based approach to learning. Our curriculum is based around the highly successful and child-centred International Primary Curriculum (IPC). It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness. We further strengthen the curriculum through the use of the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum framework for Literacy and Numeracy.

The learning goals of the primary curriculum are split into three age bands – Milepost 1 for Kindergarten to Grade 1; Milepost 2 for Grade 2 to Grade 3; and Milepost 3 for Grade 4 to Grade 5. Within each age band, there are three strands of Learning Goals: Subject Goals, Personal Goals and International Goals. Subjects include History, Geography, Science, Art, Design, Information Technology (IT), Physical Education (PE), Music and Society. Through the units of work, links are made to the host and home countries.

The child's teacher will inform the parents about which units of work the class will study during the year through an informative, regular curriculum letter. It will be clearly indicated in the letter, to which Learning Goals are being addressed in that unit of study. Parents will have many opportunities to be involved with their children in the IPC work. For more information, please visit the website at www.greatlearning.com/ipc/

THE IPC LEARNING GOALS

The IPC Learning Goals are the foundation of the IPC. The IPC Learning Goals define what children are expected to know, what they should be able to do, and the understandings they will develop in their academic, personal and international learning. The IPC Learning Goals are defined in each age phase: Milepost 1 (ages 5-7 years), Milepost 2 (ages 7-9 years) and Milepost 3 (ages 9-12 years). These learning goals guide learning and teaching and help to focus assessment. We believe that the IPC Learning Goals are equal to or exceed those of an curriculum in the world.

We have three types of Learning Goals:

The EIS interact club has been serving and giving back to the community since its inception by sponsoring activities such as the Run for Hope which primary objective is to raise funds for the Tunku Laksamana Johor Cancer Foundation ("Foundation")

Excelsior International School's Interact Club is a service club for students ages 12 - 18 whose primary purpose is to give students a chance to make a difference in the world.

This year, as part of our community service program, EIS Interact Club in support of Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral will be launched the "Plant a Tree Campaign" which is meant to instill an environment loving culture among our youths. This project involves Interact Club members and primary students from the Excelsior International School, and 16 orphans from the SHAFAR Welfare Organisation (Pertubuhan Kebajikan Shafar), Johor Bahru.

The launch was held on the 23rd September 2016 by His Highness Tunku Idris Iskandar Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Temenggong Johor during the Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral 5th Installation Dinner at Doubletree, by Hilton, Johor Bahru, Johor. EIS staff and students were in attendance where EIS Interact Club president Lim Ee Lyn helped launch the event. In addition to launching the project EIS also had both primary and secondary students perform a song for all in attendance.

The campaign is aimed to be the biggest community tree-planting and nature care event in Johor. Coordinated by Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral and proudly sponsored by Asia Plantation Capital, these are special days for all to help out by planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in which they live in.

EIS is proud that students from our school in both our Primary section and students from our Interact club are teaming up with students from Shafar orphanage to participate in this important community service endeavour.
