Curriculum & Affiliation
The designing of a school curricula requires a conceptual foresight and imagination. Exhaustive valuation and improvements made year after year keep the curriculum dynamic.
All-out efforts are made to devise the most effective method for the implementation of the requirements of the curriculum. While selecting textbooks we generally keep in mind the student learning outcomes given in the National Curriculum 2006. The Schools are affiliated with the ”Agha khan university examination Board of karachi ” . The curriculum for different classes is discussed below:
Nursery and Prep:
The first educational step that a child takes at an impressionable age of four is in Nursery and then on to Prep. Bearing in mind that the foundation of a child’s personality is laid and two third of his/her intellect formed at this age, we have created an environment and system of teaching which is entirely child friendly. The students of these classes are housed in a separate block with their own work-area,play-area and well equipped activity room.
Formal learning of the three R’s is introduced in Nursery. It finds a more prominent place in the Prep curriculum, when the child is five. Recognition, reading and writing of Urdu and English alphabet and small words are then introduced. Basic arithmetic concepts are also begun here.
Class I to V:
The basic concepts that a child was introduced to, in the Preschool, take a more firm footing here and the syllabus becomes more broad-based. The young learner is gradually exposed to subjects like Urdu, English, Mathematics, General Science and Social Studies besides teaching of Islamiyat & Naazra Quran. An effort is made to make teaching of all these subjects communicative and interactive to encourage students taking part in the learning process.
Class VI to VIII:
The curriculum, for Classes VI to VIII, is designed to help in the all round personality development of the child. It includes academic subjects as well as a variety of co-curricular activities. The academic subjects include Urdu, English, Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies, Computer Education, Islamiyat and Naazra Quran.
Class IX and X:
Our Schools are affiliated with the ”Agha khan university examination Board of karachi ” and curriculum prescribed by the Board is followed. We generally offer Science Group with Biology or Computer Science as an elective subject. However, choice of Humanities Group is also available.
