Elementary School

K1 to Grade 5

In Kindergarten I and II, emphasis is placed on the development of a positive self-concept, appropriate socialization and learning readiness skills. The foundations are laid for a happy and successful school experience. Fundamental skills are taught in an active, stimulating and accepting environment.

Curriculum for students in Grades 1 through 5 emphasizes basic skills in all subject areas and introduces higher level skills to challenge students and stimulate their interests and thinking. The curriculum fosters the concept that learning will be enjoyable and rewarding throughout students' lives.

In Grades KII – 5, an approach focused on continuous progress is used in the core curricular areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. In addition to the core subjects, students receive instruction in physical education, music, art, Arabic language for native and non-native speakers, Islamic education for Muslims, library science, and instructional technology. Our curriculum is clearly outlined by grade, and infused with an emphasis on the development of Future Fluencies. The instructional program makes a variety of provisions to support individual learning differences and all teachers strive to meet the needs of all students.

Students are provided opportunities to demonstrate their many talents, communication skills, and leadership qualities through curricular and co-curricular activities. Teachers encourage and assist students in becoming active learners, and with integrating their ideas, feelings and experiences into the instructional program. Students are encouraged to accept responsibility for their conduct, thereby enhancing their feelings of self-esteem and self-confidence.
