Elementary School

Welcome to the Elementary School at Harare International School; a vibrant learning environment, designed to inspire children’s natural curiosity, provide support as they embrace challenges, and nurture their personal growth. 

The ES section of our school is for students from 3-11 years of age.  We are a fully authorized IB School and follow the pedagogical framework of the Primary Years Program (PYP).  As an authorized PYP school, we firmly believe the formative years of learning are essential when encouraging our students to become lifelong learners. 

As a learning community, we are committed to providing our students with transdisciplinary learning opportunities that are based on student inquiry and nurture the development of the whole child.  We are dedicated to helping students make connections across academic disciplines and challenging them to achieve their highest potential both as individuals and as global citizens. Our teachers are committed to delivering an outstanding learning program that truly encourages the development of each student – physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually.  We meet students’ learning needs through innovative and differentiated methods for teaching and learning. Our Units of Inquiry are carefully crafted, and reviewed annually, to expand opportunities for inquiry, personal growth and academic development.

In addition to our Units of Inquiry, students participate in a variety of Co-curricular Activities focused on sports, creativity, and the arts.

Once again, welcome to the Elementary School at HIS!  We look forward to having you join our learning community.


Warm Regards,

Jessica Johnson
