HSBAcademy’s bilingual elementary school program covers the 5 core subjects – math, science, language arts, and social studies. Students learn through exploring and applying concepts im meaningful lessons and projects, and are provided opportunities to express their learnings in a variety of mediums. Character development is also part of our core teaching, with lessons each month on a specific core value that is taught and celebrated both inside and outside the classroom.

All lessons connect sequentially from each preceding grade to prepare students for high school and as life long learners.
