National Curriculum

1) Languages:

  • English language as first language
  • French or German languages are taught as second languages starting 3rd Primary

Our approach to language teaching is integrative. We help students to learn through language, about language as well as the language skills. The stress is on active learning, enjoyment & students engaged in different extra-curricular activities & research projects inside & outside the classroom. Teachers support students positively in their learning and create a classroom environment that exposes students to the language as well as developing their confidence in using it.

  • Science and Math are taught in English.
  • Social Studies is taught in Arabic.

2) Features of the National Division in ELS:
