In our Middle and High school, you can expect an Education that:
Fosters a diverse, multifaceted worldview
Motivates modern solutions to emerging and 21st century problems
Develops the values of global citizenship, equality, human rights and diversity
Provides standards and outcomes-based assessments which are rigorous enough to cause the standard university entry exam (such as an SAT) to be waived for our graduates
Employs qualified and experienced educators working to the Canadian standards of instruction and assessment
Sustains an ethos of community, inclusion and achievement
Continues the elementary trajectory of focusing on achievement in literacy and numeracy
High School Assessing and Reporting
Mid-term exams in year long courses (Ex. English Language Arts).
Final exams in semester long courses.
Each semester has the following: A – An Interim report, to give parents a sense of how students are starting off (a few weeks into each semester) B – A Mid Term report, with assessment data, attendance information, and comments on progress as well as learning behaviors. C – A Final Report, with the same structure as the Mid Term report but which includes final course information and details.
Students will also complete the same Arabic ministry exams at the same ages as any other school in Egypt.
Mid Term or Final exams are held in the last weeks of January and Final exams on the second or third week of June.
Student progress is updated and reported to parents regularly through the Engage platform.
