The Elementary school comprises grades PK through grade 5. We operate on an 8 day cycle which is the same as the Middle and High School.
Our school day begins at 7:40 and finishes at 2:30 with a half hour for lunch at either 11 or 11:30. Teachers schedule other breaks into the day to allow the students recess time both in the morning and afternoon. Our 3 year old PK classes start at 7:30 but end at 1:00 p.m.
Our classroom teachers deliver all programming under the umbrella of the PYP Units of Inquiry. Specific instruction in math and literacy is given each day within the Unit of Inquiry or as a standalone element.
We offer specialist instruction and support in the following curriculum areas as is grade appropriate:
- Arabic for Foreign Language Learners
- Religion for Foreigners
- Physical Education
Our Library/Information Centre is a source of support for all grades and all learning at the school. The Librarian and staff with support from the Technology Specialist assist students in acquiring the necessary skills and information to support their learning. Our library is proud of its book holdings and students regularly sign out materials.
