Learning at St. Nicholas
Throughout the curriculum the school offers a vibrant and innovative education which seeks to inspire and challenge our students to develop a deep-seated love of learning. Emphasis is placed on the process of how students learn as much as what they are learning.
We offer an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum which is both rigorous and relevant, grounded in the real-world. Learning at St. Nicholas focuses on higher-order thinking skills and multiple intelligences, alongside an integrated use of technology and multimedia.
Our students develop several intercultural understandings, an opportunity afforded by the school’s global context. They learn that communicating in multiple ways in more than one language is critical in today’s globalised world. At St. Nicholas, more than 90% of students earn a Bilingual International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma on graduating in Year 12. St. Nicholas currently offers first language instruction to Diploma Level in the following languages: English, French, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.
At St. Nicholas, we seek to develop a diverse community of lifelong learners who are internationally minded global citizens. Our learners learn that through collaboration, they can work together to make the world a better place. We do this so that all of our students have the chance to model the knowledge, are equipped with the skills and share the values needed to thrive in an ever-changing world.
