We offer an exclusive blend of national and international curricula to meet the diverse needs of our student body. The Bilingual program adopts both the Khmer National Curriculum and the Cambridge curriculum. The International program adopts the CAIE – Cambridge curriculum, leading our students seamlessly from Primary through Secondary and Pre-University years. The students from the International program benefit from recognised programs such as Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary (IGCSE), and Cambridge Advanced Levels (AS/A Levels).


Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. Students cover Maths, Science, Arts, Languages and Social Studies subjects in both curricula. As a programme developed with consistent standards that are externally benchmarked across tens of thousands of students, it enables reliable structured reporting to parents about the performance of their children, which has validity beyond the school. The programme also enables the school to ensure that students are properly prepared for the demands of the IGCSE courses in these subjects.


IGCSE  students follow a two-year program named International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) designed for 14 to 16-year-olds. This program will be intended for students in Grade 9-10 at our school. IGCSEs are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends and so are an ideal foundation for higher-level courses such as AS and A-Levels. At the end of this two-year course, when our students are about to complete Grade 10, they are offered to sit IGCSE exams that are to will held in May/June or November series.

IGCSE courses are renowned for developing vital educational knowledge, understanding and skills


The General Certificate of Education Advanced Level, or A-Level, is the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge qualifications. It is accepted as an entry qualification by universities of the European Union and elsewhere worldwide. A-Levels are highly specialised, and a student will generally take three subjects over two years. The subject content of each Cambridge A-Level syllabuses has been subdivided into two parts: the AS syllabus content, which is expected to be covered in the first half of the course, and part two of the syllabus, commonly referred to as ‘A2’.


Our curriculum strives to incorporate the experiences, cultures, and perspectives of our students; specifically, an appreciation of Cambodia’s culture and its contribution to the heritage of the civilised world and with a primary focus on internationalism, to create open-minded world citizens who have international perspectives, are self-confident and conscientious, and who can function as leaders and team members in societies all over the world. We inspire our students to pursue and achieve their dreams and get admitted to the best universities worldwide. The alumni network has been our pride, and we continue to build strong bonds between alumni, students and parents.

Paragon International School focuses on the individual well-being of students. It doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach, so teachers are highly encouraged to differentiate their instruction, curriculum, & materials to promote meaningful learning for every student.

Providing learning support for students with diverse learning needs is one of the vital components to ensure the quality of the school. In this regard, the Learning Support Department works in collaboration with all stakeholders of the school – teachers, teaching assistance, parents and wider community to ensure that individual needs of each referred student are met. One of the many services provided by the department is in-house training for teachers and teaching assistance on the topics of understanding learning differences and giving the right type of intervention. In this respect, the department has been organizing awareness campaigns, such as “Dyslexia Awareness Week” and “Understanding ADHD” that turned into annual events for teachers, parents and students.

Members in the learning support department try to stay updated with the latest interventions and strategies to support students with special needs. All members of the department have taken courses on understanding special educational needs, such as Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and what approaches work best in teaching students with such conditions.

Additionally, Paragon International School is one of the member schools of SENIAC Local Chapter (Special Educational Needs in Asia) and benefits from the resources of the wider community to give evidence-based interventions. The representatives of more than 20 International schools have attended the PD that was held in North Bridge International School to exchange latest intervention approaches.
