These standards provide students with a rigorous framework that enhances a well-rounded education that prepares students for college and careers. Arabic is taught to native and non-native speakers and Islamic Studies for Muslim students as per the Ministry of Education (MOE) standards and curriculum. Significant focus is placed on ensuring students are engaged in innovative learning that develop from students’ interests and guide them to become responsible global citizens. Our Kindergarten curriculum offers a play-based learning environment designed to meet a child’s needs for all types of play, both indoors and out, providing them with valuable first-hand experiences upon which their future learning will be built. There is an emphasis on developing the children’s independence throughout all aspects of the curriculum. Role-play is used to create the children’s expressive language skills; role-play areas change regularly in classrooms and central areas.

Our gardening projects include an Aquaponics system which is a friendly way of growing plants and vegetables by converting fish waste into plant nutrition.
