It offers an education to children from K1 to grade 12. All lessons are taught in English and Khmer. The high school is housed in a newly built and designed building in Tonle Bassac area of Phnom Penh. Students from grade 7 to 12 attend this campus. The Zaman Primary is located in Toul Kork, Phnom Penh.
