Elementary- The Foundation for a Lifetime of Learning

The Elementary School years are an important time for students to not only learn fundamental concepts and mechanics, but to also develop learning skills and approaches that will set the stage for a lifetime of success.  GIS Elementary focuses on children’s natural curiosity and encourages them to delve deep into topics and subject areas.

We include a variety of learning approaches, along with multi-sensory and hands-on activities that appeal to a variety of learning styles.  These activities focus on children’s natural sense of curiosity and encourage students to explore and discover.

Our elementary school curriculum focuses on the various subject areas: English, Math, Science, Arabic, Islamic studies, Social Studies, Art, P.E, and ICT. Students will develop strong reading comprehension skills, write original composition pieces, develop critical thinking skills, learn fundamental math concepts, explore a variety of science topics, and learn about the world around them while maintaining a strong connect with the rich Arabic language.

All Elementary School subjects also include integrated technology lessons that coincide with subjects and lessons. Your child won’t learn technology skills in isolation, but will develop an understanding and appreciation on how to apply these skills to their everyday work.

Elementary students’ progress and attainment is also tracked using standardized adaptive tests like MAP (Measure of Academic Progress), and their cognitive abilities tested using CAT4 (Cognitive Ability test) at Grade 4.

PISA (Program for International Student Assessment for Reading and TIMMS (The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) is a series of international assessments of the mathematics and science knowledge of students around the world used for Grade 4.

Our engaging Elementary School curriculum will encourage our student to explore, discover, and excel, while learning fundamental concepts that lead to academic success for years to come!
