Dwi Emas encourages students to be curious about what they are learning, and to be able to ask
great questions as a result of that curiosity. It also employs active learning methods and integrates
right-brain activities into left-brain subjects, so students are able to discover facts in a more
interactive way and reason better e.g. students sing in Chemistry, create treasure hunts for Maths
and choreograph dance moves for Physics. This not only makes learning fun and
multidimensional, but engages students in a way that helps move information into long-term
memory (which is great for examinations).
Being an Entrepreneurial School, students are also equipped with skills and experiences to create
and run profitable, sustainable businesses. This develops skills such as leadership, creative
problem solving, collaboration, analytical skills and self-reflection, just to name a few. It also
develops grit and allows students to amass powerful experiences by the time they graduate, giving
them an edge in their skills, mindset and decision-making. This begins right from Year 1 via their
signature Financial Education classes.
Why entrepreneurship? Dwi Emas believes in growing pioneers who create opportunity and value
for society. In an age where everyone has easy access to information, people who are adaptable
and innovative have more value and are the ones who will succeed in the long run. While
traditional systems prepare students to be job seekers, Dwi Emas students are empowered with
choice: To contribute their valuable mindset, skills and experience to work for an organisation, or to
set up their own business and provide jobs for others.
