Early Years - Toddlers,Pre-K, KG 1 and KG 2.
In KG we base our learning on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), but we are also influenced by the wealth of international research around learning in the Early Years.
Our stimulating and interactive Early Years environment encourages our young learners to inquire and explore. We have dedicated indoor and outdoor learning zones where the children can discover, embed their learning and make connections, building the firm foundations for academic success. We have a caring team of well-trained Early Years Educators who facilitate learning and monitor student progress through observational assessment, meeting with parents on a regular basis.
Primary - Grades 1 to 5
GemsModern Academy Primary School section offers an International education which aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
Primary School has a rigorous, strong and well developed curriculum guided by International Baccalaureate's Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) Framework.
The school’s Primary Years Programme is transdisciplinary in nature and is led by the essential elements of knowledge, skills, concepts, attitudes and action.
In the Primary School, students learn about significant concepts through units of inquiry. The six transdisciplinary themes that guide units of inquiry and compose a year of study are:
|Who we are?||How the world works?|
|Were we are in place and time?||How we organize ourselves|
|How we express ourseves?||Sharing the Planet|
Units of inquiry interweave subject areas such as mathematics, language arts, science and social studies. This approach encourages students to make their own connections between what they learn in core subject areas and how it relates to the world around them.
GEMS Modern Academy is a candidate school for the PYP .We are currently pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging international education- that we believe is important for our students.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes.
* Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
We hope to be authorized by October 2020.
