Preparatory

English

Our priority in MNS is to prepare students for the future. MNS students are provided with model language learning courses aimed at developing their communicative skills for study, professional and leisure purposes. In our English classes students are prepared to be effective communicators, intercultural leaders, and engaged global citizens.

Objective

Our main objective is to develop the students’ intellectual, individual and professional abilities to use the English language effectively through:

  • Acquiring basic language skills   (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
  • Developing awareness of the importance of English as a means of international communication.
  • Developing a deeper insight into the nature and functioning of language as a social phenomenon.
  • Developing interest in and appreciation of Literature
  • Developing the student’s intellect; voluntary and involuntary memory, imaginative abili­ties, and will power.
  • Developing critical thinking skills through engaging students in discussions and arguments that require analyzing characters and texts and that entail forming opinions based on justifications.
  • Enhancing creative writing to help students develop their own powers of expression, empathy and critical reading and thinking.

Curriculum

In the Preparatory Stage, the MNS English curriculum is based on Holt’s Elements of Literature. Through this comprehensive course, students are exposed to a wide range of intensive and extensive reading texts of both fiction and nonfiction selections. Such texts dramatically increase the students’ understanding of the language through giving them a rock solid foundation of sophisticated vocabulary, complex language skills, spelling rules, and a broad range of writing techniques; all presented through a well-integrated curriculum.

Elements of Literature is smoothly integrated with the national curriculum requirements. At the same time, special attention is paid to reading and writing skills in a way that matches the international curriculum requirements. Thus, with this unique integration of the national, the American, and the British requirements, the MNS English curriculum is finely woven to allow students not only to fit in any system, but to excel as well.

 

Math

The mission of the middle school math department is to provide an educational experience in mathematic, through a well-designed curriculum and supportive learning environment that will contribute to the development of our students as mathematical thinkers.

Curriculum

We are following the ministry of education curriculum while using our methodology.

 Our strategy 

Our target is achieved through:

  • Using mathematical application in our daily life.
  • Developing students’ mathematical thinking and preparing them to deal with any educational system.
  • Improving their critical thinking skills by depending on their mind more than calculators.

Science

Lab facilities

MNS possesses three recently renovated labs that are very well equipped for the purpose of enhancing practical applications, demonstrations and experimentation. We also possess a fume hood that is used especially in experiments that release irritable gases. Beyond all this, our labs also feature smart boards that encourage students to make full use of the facility in the form of active learning to ensure maximum interaction of our students.

Approach

Most science lessons are conducted in the lab where students are seated in groups to perform and observe  activities and experiments under close teachers’ supervision. Recently, lessons are provided to our students in the form of power point presentations that are aided with videos and pictures to help enhance visual learning. Our science log includes numerous lesson activities, colored diagrams and critical thinking questions to help brain storming.

Teachers

Our science staff is carefully chosen. They are all proud graduates of different medical schools with vast scientific knowledge. They are all trained to launch lessons in ways that suite different student learning abilities.
