Our Middle School includes Grade 7 to Grade 9. At this stage, students are dealing with challenges that come along with the critical developmental stage in their lives. At ISA we understand that young learners at this age need a lot of activities to help them burn off their energy and to help them grasp the academic material presented to them. That is why we focus on engaging them in real life learning in their classes through projects and other activities.
We also understand that at this stage children are becoming more socially aware and are eager to effect change in their community and in the world around them. That is why we have capitalized on this and made community service hours a requirement for promotion, giving the students a choice of which cause they want to volunteer their time to.
At the Middle School, we emphasize the Lebanese National Curriculum as ultimately our students will sit for the Brevet Exams (at the end of Grade 9) and eventually in two years time, the Baccalaureate Exams (at the end of Grade 12). In addition to the regular subjects taught, we provide the students with an elective that will enhance life skills. Students in Grade 10 are taught Research Skills as preparation for university years.
