How We Teach: Elementary Level

EF, Positive discipline and growth mindset


Tubtong’s EF, POSITIVE DISCIPLINE AND GROWTH MINDSET instruction methods are designed to enhance the curriculum to be as effective as possible. We therefore aim to build strong Executive Functions (EF) and a Growth Mindset in our students by using positive discipline. The curriculum at the elementary level will be more intensive in content. We therefore focus more on the process of instruction than the subject's content. One of the key instruction processes that is used for developing EF skills is Problem Base Learning, which allows students to think critically, synthesize problems, and build scientific thinking processes to solve problems. In addition, the Project Base Learning concept has been adopted to allow students to learn about teamwork. Students will be encouraged to think and do the right thing. The whole process is carried out using the principles of Positive Discipline, building a Growth Mindset to develop strong EF skills.

Global Citizenship


Global Citizenship is one of the key qualities of people in the 21st century, as discussed by the World Economic Forum. Global citizens must know their roles and duties in this world. Good global citizens should undertake active roles in their communities, work with others for peace and sustainability, and increase opportunities for those who are less fortunate than they are. Therefore, at the elementary level, Tubtong School has adopted the concept of urban farming to optimize learning each subject through various activities, according to the urban farming concept, where students will be encouraged to cultivate environmental responsibility. Students will be trained to use technology responsibly to enhance their knowledge and skills to truly become Digital Citizens.

Life long learner


Since technology has evolved by leaps and bounds, causing many changes in the world, being a Lifelong Learner has become an especially important quality. Instruction at Tubtong School emphasizes allowing students to explore, search, and learn, in order to develop EF skills. This quality will cultivate the habits of knowledge and improvement seekers, both in school and at work after graduation, and even in students’ daily lives. Therefore, being a Lifelong Learner is an important quality to be built from childhood, gradually, until it becomes a habit.
