The Middle School provides the educational experience that facilitates the transition from the elementary to a high school learning environment. The programme is responsive to the needs of 11 to 14 year old by addressing their intellectual, emotional, social, moral and physical development in the early adolescence period. Instruction is offered in a supportive atmosphere which recognizes and values individual differences and fosters self-esteem and personal growth, promoting alongside, the pupil’s ability to shoulder academic and other responsibilities independently and effectively.
Curricular and co-curricular activities enable students to develop responsibility and self confidence, effective communication skills, time management skills, study and the decision making skills essential for this age. Additionally celebrations, physical activities, formal and informal discussions take place as the opportunity arises. A healthy and positive relationship between the students and teachers is encouraged.
A highly inter-active approach to learning is encouraged in the classroom through discussion and group work complemented by regular written class and home assignments. In Sciences, the learning process is supported by investigation; experiment demonstrations in each discipline in the Lab. More subjects may be offered depending on the demand and the size of the group opting for a subject. However, the choice of subjects will have to conform to combination set by the school.
In addition to learning facts, logical thinking is encouraged through inquiry and problem solving. Assessment is continuous and built in over the two year period.
