JUNIOR SCHOOL CAMPUS
Boston International Junior School welcomes you. We endeavor to provide the greatest possible education for all of our kids, regardless of their background, size, color, religion, or any other special needs. All of our students are unique, and we think that with the education and support we provide, they will be able to attain their own particular perfection. As a result, kids develop into important members of our global community.
We follow the Cambridge method of education with our team, who have gone through different training plug-ins both locally and globally. We believe in providing ongoing professional development opportunities for our instructors. We care for children from 2 to 11 years, and after passing the Primary Check Point Exams, they progress to our high school. We also respect each child’s religious background, thus we conduct religious sessions once a week.

Learning goals for primary school students
Our curriculum promotes four aspects of achievement:
- The ability to express oneself in oral and written form and, where appropriate, to remember facts accurately and use them constructively.
- The ability to apply knowledge through practical tasks, problem solving, investigation skills, and the use of oral and written language.
- The development of personal and social skills, such as the ability to work with others and take on a leadership role within a group.
- The development of confidence that comes through self-discipline and the commitment to learn and persevere even when tasks seem difficult.
Our major subjects and areas of learning are as follows:
- Humanities(History and Geography)
- Digital Literacy

- English as an Additional Language (EAL)
How we assess and track progress at the primary school level
All Key Stage One and Two pupils have midterm and end of term assessments alongside routine homework during the academic year.
These targets are shared with parents, and students then work towards them in class. Gifted and talented students can also be identified at this point, as can those students who need joint support programmes.
As the year progresses, we assess your child in the following ways:
- Observing them working in their ability groups
- Asking them questions or giving them complex problems or tasks to solve
- Looking at their completed work
- Regular online assessments using a formative assessment program
At regular intervals throughout the term, teachers are asked to review each student’s attainment. This is where patterns and trends are identified. Teachers will then create individual support plans to ensure each student makes optimal progress.
