The elementary level consists of 5 years (Grade 1 – Grade 5). The fundamental curriculum used at this level is the Common Core State Standards. To ensure preparation, various aspects of this program have been modified to cater for the needs of the students’ learning continuum throughout their school years. Extensive planning from our qualified teachers means that most subjects will have a cross curriculum link.
Children will have a qualified homeroom teacher for Math, English, Science, Social Studies and specialist teachers for ICT, Physical Education, Art, Music, German, Arabic and Islamic Studies.
At this level, we strive to create a stress-free environment that supports and nurtures the students’ emotional, physical, and academic growth. GIS opens its doors and welcomes grades 1 and 2 only in the first year.
