 * ARIS is a candidate school for MYP
** Currently, as we are gradually shifting from the IGCSE programme to the MYP, we have adopted the strategy of smoothly transiting from the skills acquired at the IGCSE level and zoning into the MYP. Our year 7 and 8 students are currently on the MYP (1 &2) as we seamlessly phase out the 9 – 11 off the IGCSE.
