Innovative learning methods, and laying a solid academic foundation for children, are not mutually exclusive. At Austin, in addition to mathematics and Chinese, as a Cambridge-certified school, we adopt the Cambridge system as our core curriculum to provide systematic support, ensuring continuity, progression and convenience for further education from years 1-13. We also engage in various innovative practices such as interdisciplinary, project-based, differentiated, and personalised teaching. At Austin, we strive to balance innovation with traditional pedagogy. The Chinese and mathematics curricula, key features of Austin, are based on highly challenging standards. Detailed introductions to these subjects are provided later in this section.
