Our Primary Division comprises Grades 1, 2, and 3. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the 21st century, of individual students as well as the needs of local and global communities.
We keep in mind the Ministry of Education’s outcomes while offering an enriched curriculum far exceeding public school standards and expectations. Our program is rich, well-rounded, and respects learner interests.
The classroom is a dynamic environment, bringing together students from different backgrounds with various abilities and personalities. Being an effective teacher, therefore, requires the implementation of creative and innovative teaching strategies in order to meet students’ individual needs.
We believe in inquiry-based instruction promoting critical thinking.
In the classroom studying Tornadoes as a part of their “Terrible Twisters” theme, students do all sorts of activities centered around the theme which enhances skills from all aspects of the curriculum.
While studying tornadoes, students would do something different yet related in every class, such as:
We strive to integrate Islamic teachings and values in all core subjects and follow a theme-based curriculum. A theme-based curriculum means that each skill area of the curriculum is connected to a topic which we refer to as a theme.
Learning is an integrated process, and theme-based education is beneficial in several ways. Children of all ages benefit from the connections made across the curriculum. Rather than teaching each skill or topic in isolation students are encouraged to see that at different times of the day or through different subjects we can learn about different aspects of a larger topic. In turn, this helps students see connections and start to make their own connections from one experience to another. It also helps students become creative in their thinking, in investigating their own ideas as well as gaining a deeper understanding of academic concepts.
We also strive to provide differentiated learning according to students’ unique learning needs.
