High School 7-9 Programme
In Grades 7-9, students follow the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and they are building a foundation for the more rigorous curriculum offered in later grades within the High School.
The MYP (Middle Years Programme) provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to not only embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, but also to become critical and reflective thinkers.
The Grade 7-9 programme consists of eight subject groups integrated through five areas of interaction that provide a framework for learning within and across the subjects. Our Grade 7-9 students take courses in Arabic, English and French languages, Mathematics, Science, Humanities (including Geography and History), Arts (including Visual Arts, Drama, Food Science and Music), Computer Studies, Physical Education and Health and Social Education. Arab nationals are required to undertake additional instruction in the Arabic language. Some students are assessed as needing additional instruction in the English language. Muslim students are required by the Ministry of Education to take the Islamic Studies course. All other students will receive extra lessons of Music and Physical Education.
