Curriculum

The high school follows the curriculum of the Irish departments of education and science. At its core is a strong emphasis on academic achievement and self-discipline. To highlight the importance of the academic core, we have three examinations per year. These examinations take place in November, February and May.

In Grades 7 to 9, the subjects are English, Mathematics, History, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Art, French, Arabic, with the addition of Business studies for Grade 10 students. Physical Education is also an important part of the curriculum.

In the senior cycle (Grades 11 to 12) the students study in preparation for the Irish Leaving Certificate. This is an internationally recognized examination which is deemed to be above par when compared to the final examination of other countries. Throughout this two year course, assessment involves full examinations three times each year with detailed reports being provided to parents. English, Mathematics and Physical Education must be taken at this level. Students then have a choice of studying French, Arabic, Art, Business Studies, Physics, History, Chemistry, Geography, Biology or Economics.
