The Harbour School
The Harbour School (THS) is an international school that combines an exciting and thought-provoking curriculum with an emphasis on 21st century skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, creativity, innovation and resilience. We were founded in 2007 and our school is already gaining a worldwide reputation as a center of excellence. In fact, The Harbour School recently placed second worldwide as in a global competition for "21st Century School of the Year." In addition to a structured approach to math, reading and writing, we use a very experiential approach in areas such as science, history and the arts. Children at The Harbour School are active, learning many things through experimentation, project work, discussion or action. We also customize instruction for each child’s abilities and skills. We welcome a diversity of students, so that they learn to work with others who may have different learning profiles, and we encourage children to explore different areas of strength.
We do this by maintaining an extremely high ratio of teachers to students: one teacher for every seven students in class, and one for every four students school-wide. This ratio enables teachers to work in small groups and to take the time to ensure that students are working at their optimal level. Technology is also used throughout the curriculum to help students learn, communicate or produce at their highest level.
