ALBA International Secondary School offers a curriculum based on the Cambridge International Education (UK) model. Our textbook series’ are primarily Cambridge, though these are supplemented frequently with Pearson materials, as well as by materials that our teachers develop.

Though we follow the English curriculum in preparing students for the IGCSE exams, we hope to foster abilities in our students that should allow them to do well on any test of their grade-level knowledge.

Our Year 9 Achievement tests and IGCSE exams are certified by Edexel.

So far, in the 2 years of our Secondary school plus IGCSE program, our students have scored well above average on both the Year 9 Achievement tests and on the IGCSE exams.
