Mission and vision
Astana Garden School PRIMARY is a junior school (grades 0 - 6) in which the curriculum is an integration of the state compulsory primary education standard, with the introduction of distinctive AGS components and Singapore Mathematics and Science.

AGS Primary offers subject areas such as languages, mathematics, arts, science, social studies, physical and personal development. Learning is based on authentic student exploration of interesting, fairly complex and globally significant "big ideas."
