new step schools
Referring to the school - wide academic expectations , the school’s vision, mission , and beliefs , the standards for new curricula chosen are all hopefully set to fulfill the school’s comprehensive targets and goals .
The priority of our curricula is to align with the school’ s mission that states ‘our mission is to empower all students with the knowledge , skills ,and attitude needed to succeed as responsible life – long learners’ . Strong content knowledge fostered with enhanced abilities, and skills to comprehend and critique as well as to use technology , all help an individual be a life long learner. Also , the independence demonstrated through the learning process gives a student responsibility towards his own learning .Finally , developing an attitude of understanding other perspectives and cultures facilitates the life – long learning process wherever a person is .
Regarding our curricula for the subjects, we use common core state standards in English and mathematics. We use Mc. Rell standards in science, social , and physical education while in French Canadian standards are used. When it comes to Arabic, Saudi history and Islamic studies and as we are an international school located in K.S.A , we have to keep aligned with the standards of the Saudi Ministry of education.
