Primary & Secondary Section

Primary & Secondary Section

Overview

The Primary Section comprises of Grades 1 – 5 with segregated classes for male & female students in most AES campuses. Grades are divided into smaller sections to ensure the instructors’ attention for each individual child.

The secondary section comprises of Grades 6 – 8; the second term in Grade 8 is termed “Pre-9th”. In Pre-9th, students opt for O’Levels or Matriculation and are prepared accordingly for a term before entering the definitive academic year.

Curriculum

The assembled curriculum for these grades consists of core subjects that are taught using standard Oxford University Press, Cambridge & Paramount textbooks among others. The students are required to complete individual & group projects during class hours for core subjects, and are assessed regularly to mark their progress.

Creative programs like the traditional Bazm-E-Adab are a part of each grade’s schedule and students are encouraged to employ their talents in any way they like within the safe space of the Bazm-E-Adab!

Learning in Action

Learning at AES is a conscious departure from generic classroom learning. The students have ready access to on-campus laboratories, a kitchen garden, libraries and multi-purpose halls equipped with multimedia facilities to help them dig deeper into the concepts they learn in the classrooms.

Parental Involvement

Through traditional Parent-Teacher Conferences, AES instructors involve parents fully in the education of the child, but we do not believe a PTC covers it all. Parents are also encouraged to meet our student counselors, instructors and our subject facilitators to help them identify their child’s strengths & weaknesses and plan their child’s study routine at home accordingly.

Similarly, parents are encouraged to attend events at the school that are open to public to help create a relationship of trust and understanding between the child, the instructors and the parents.

Arabic language, Naẓirah Qur’an and translation of the Qur’an are mandatory subjects which the students are graded for. Moreover, the Islamic Linkage technique helps students link religion with concepts and subjects that are often presumed to be secular in nature.
