Founded in 2000, PBS has been providing world-class professional learning and development and thoughtful leadership for over twenty years. At PBS we have a strong desire to transform education, and we believe that embracing research, exploring new pedagogies and technologies in our classrooms to engage English second language learners across all grades, is what 21st Century Education is all about.
Permata Bangsa School seeks to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through development-appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment.
Each student’s self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved on our students’ learning.
