Curriculum

Schools’ International Curriculum

Al-Iqbal International School offers an enriched American curriculum with an International perspective for students in preschool through grade 12. The curriculum is based on US national standards in all.

     The core program emphasizes reading and the language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Elementary students receive instruction in health, physical education, computer technology, art, and Arabic culture. French instruction begins in KG. Middle and High school students continue their studies in the core areas. Instructional objectives are clearly defined in all subject areas, but academic expectations are flexible enough to both support and challenge each individual learner. Homework is an important part of the educational process as a means of reinforcing and reviewing the daily classroom lessons. Instruction in all areas encourages students to grow as creative persons, critical thinkers and effective communicators. Technology, with Internet access in the school and libraries, is integrated throughout our program.

   

       Academically, AIS prepares students to meet the challenge of a university education. Middle and High School students are well prepared for the SAT tests throughout their curriculum.

 

     Beyond academics AIS strives to instill in all students a positive attitude toward lifelong learning, an appreciation for cultural diversity, and the skills necessary to be successful in their future endeavors.
