One Planet has already taken many steps to strengthen its international curriculum. It uses the Cambridge curriculum for English, science, and math subjects from grades 1-6. Starting in middle school, One Planet has developed two tracks for local students and international students. Local students are prepared to pass the Ethiopian national exams, and international students, who pay a higher tuition rate, study the Cambridge curriculum to pass the O, A, and AS level exams. One Planet has invested on trainings in the Cambridge system for its teaching staff and for its Curriculum and Quality Assurance unit. One Planet is in the process of acquiring certification to become an IGCSE/IB program facility
At One Planet, students learn through discovery and exploration led by their own curiosity. Students are often presented with a problem or a scenario which causes them to discover the answer through reflection, consultation, problem solving and investigation.
Subjects include Mathematics, English, Amharic, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer-, and Character education. Starting in third grade, French is introduced.
At One Planet, students are evaluated using the standards of learning and are not ranked against one another.
Our Curriculum and Quality Assurance Department gained a couple of new members, as part of our efforts to ensure smoother implementation of curriculums according to the highest possible standards. As a result, we would like to introduce Mr. Zelalem Fissehatsion, our new Quality and Assurance Coordinator, who is here to check and insure that our high expectations and standards of education are met. He is a straight talking, highly experienced no nonsense professional with a great sense of humor. His immense experience gained during the past years in administration will help bring the school to the desired objectives and progress in the quality of education.
