At Middle School, we offer the Cambridge checkpoint curriculum. Subjects to be learnt over the span of three years are English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Innovation and Design, World Languages (French, Spanish and Hindi), Physical Education, Arts (Visual Arts, Drama, and Music), Information and Technology/ Computer Science. At the end of Grade 8, students appear for the Cambridge checkpoint progressive test in three subjects: Mathematics, Science, and English. Teachers and students work together to build a community of trust, where curiosity, creativity, and passion are encouraged.
Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It helps prepare students for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way. The curriculum offers plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression, and wellbeing in a variety of ways. The curriculum is designed to adapt the content to suit our school context, culture, and ethos. It focuses on the digital skills that will help with many aspects of their future learning and development.
Each year is divided into two semesters which has two quarters each. In each semester students are assessed by ongoing formative assessments and summative assessment at the end of the semester. The Middle School program encourages students to do problem-solving, project designs, collaborative planning, use of various thinking techniques, exhibitions, and open discussions which makes them ready for the challenges in the IGCSE and IB programs.
