Grade and Middle School
The students study three languages, English French and Arabic. The curriculum is eclectic, based on American, French and local Lebanese. Science is offered in English, with American - curricula. Currently, we are using ebooks in most of our elementary program. Science is supplemented by lab sessions. Mathematics is also offered in English; and it tends to be advanced American and/or Lebanese programs. French is in coordination with the French Cultural Center, and we prepare our students for the DELF in the intermediate classes. Arabic language follows what we believe to be the best offered locally, with special Arabic provision for non-Lebanese students. Our curriculum also includes Bible, drama, art, music, and more.
