The youngest members of the ISM family attend the school for half days only. Here the children learn how to go to school. Proficiency in English is the most important part of their learning.
Through games and other activities they also learn how to communicate with other children from many backgrounds, to count, read, paint, sing and the most challenging of all – to meet the expectations of adults.
Grades 1 to 6
ISM emphasizes the skills which students need for a good foundation: mathematics, reading and writing. Also incorporated into the elementary curriculum are social studies, science, spelling, Arabic, French, Art, Music and most students' favorite, physical education!
Within all the classes enrichment experiences supplement the academic areas due to the international blend of students. The students simply concentrate on learning everything they can about each other, languages included. This cross-cultural interaction provides opportunities to make friends from around the world.
