    Excellence is not an act, but a habit. “We are what we repeatedly do” – Aristotle

    Excellence in education requires the input, and dedication of the teacher, student, and parents.

Our Language Approach

In a multilingual school like Academy of Excellence, learners must learn at least two languages. Which language to learn is not as important as the skill of learning a language.

We value and promote multilingualism.  We want to encourage children to be proud of their mother tongue/home language.
