We enable students to acquire necessary mathematical concepts and skills for everyday life. For General Studies, we implement the Whole-School Science Programme, Inquiry-based Learning and Project Work. We implement a Cross-curricular Integrated School-based Curriculum in which we design theme-based to enrich students' learning experience. We aim to provide students with seven holistic educational elements: moral, intellectual, physical, social, aesthetic, emotional and spiritual education to improve students' self quality. We also employ an IT interactive teaching strategy and systematic thinking training. To cater for learner diversity, we adopt gifted education and remedial teaching programme.

Extra remedial classes are conducted by teachers qualified with special training. Besides, to cater for students' special needs, there are services provided by the school psychologist and the speech therapist.
