Academics | Middle Section

The Middle School curriculum is designed with the needs of the growing adolescent in mind. It creates excitement for learning by cultivating an intellectual environment where curiosity, creativity and aesthetic awareness is developed. In addition to this, analytical and critical thinking skills are enhanced, thus preparing the way to developing independent learning skills.

Class VII is a transition year in many ways. Arriving on a new site, students have to find their way to ten subject rooms, and have to adjust to longer lessons. By Class IX they have science taught as the three separate disciplines of  Biology, Chemistry and Physics, with significant laboratory work. Also, they have begun O-level courses in Islamiyat or Bible Knowledge and Pakistan Studies. This preparation for examinations is regarded as an important part of their learning experience.

However, the assessment system during a term caters to the needs of students of varying ability. Different types of assessments are used by the various subject departments depending on the scope for practical and oral presentations. It is through project work that a variety of skills, particularly social skills, are developed in our students.  

The curriculum enables students to develop their personal organisational and time managements skills making them learn responsibility. Thus they will be equipped to deal with the challenges of O-levels and A-levels at the College Section where they are expected to be more independent in their approach to learning.
