The educational institution offers a combination of the English National Curriculum in EYFS - Year 11 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) in Years 12 and 13. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with UNICEF and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The school also provides special classes for inclusive children and specially selected teachers to work with them. The language of education is English. Other languages taught in the curriculum include Arabic, Spanish, French and German.
