This all-through school offers a solid IB education that’s rooted in Chinese language and tradition.

Established in 2006 as the Chinese International School, Hillside World Academy (HWA) is perhaps best known in Singapore for its dual language programme in English and Mandarin. This is the first international branch of Beijing Huijia Private School, which has kindergartens and IB schools across China. In line with all Beijing Huijia schools, HWA focuses on delivering a “Bilingual Bicultural education” and teaches the IB’s Primary Years Programme bilingually.

Here’s a school where students from kindergarten through to Grade 6 are encouraged to switch between PuTongHua, Mandarin, and English in the classroom. Half the teachers speak both English and Mandarin, and the bicultural system continues into the IB's Middle Years Programme and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The school also runs a Beijing student exchange programme with its sister school.

Located in the North East community of Hougang, HWA has been designed for bilingualism with its purpose-built bilingual classrooms, library, audio room, and Chinese pond on campus. As well as having access to the school’s modern facilities, students are just a 10-minute walk away from the fully-equipped Serangoon Stadium.

A full review will be posted shortly.
