At ASPAM IIS, our aim is to instill a sense of identity in our students through a focus on their holistic development. The wide array of scholastic and co-scholastic curriculum offers opportunities for every child to develop his/her interest and discover his/her talent.
The scholastic curriculum aims to produce confident and competent learners, who are able to communicate effectively. In order to enable our students to reach their full potential, our teachers encourage group interactions, developing learning communities, stimulating student/faculty discussions, and encouraging use of modern technology. At ASPAM IIS, we have adopted the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) to incorporate creative thinking and visual learning into our classrooms. As the depth of the knowledge grows, students are guided to think deeper and more critically and apply their understanding in innovative and challenge based projects, which prepares them seamlessly for high school.
ASPAM recognizes the Senior School as a decisive phase in the lives of young people when they discover their own identity and voices. The school also realizes that success in this segment of the educational journey, both in academics and in character building, plays an increasingly important role. The school follows the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education), New Delhi and Ministry of Education, UAE. Students are offered Arabic, English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Hindi/French, Islamic Studies/Value Education/Ethics, and ICT education, Visual / Performing Arts and Physical Education that aims to inspire our future leaders to face challenges through a concrete process that leads to high expectations for their achievement. A broad range of instructional strategies and international pedagogical methods are used for engaging students in real-world applications.
ASPAM IIS believes that without compromising on academic rigour or expectations for high academic achievement, children need a broad based set of experiences within a climate where all is deemed to be a wholesome learning experience. The school offers facilities for the following:
KG-ART & DESIGN
A mixture of art, craft, music, movement, imaginative and role play opportunities encourage the development of a child’s creativity. Children explore a variety of media as they work with colours, textures, shapes, spaces and forms. We also provide children with a variety of natural materials to explore and make things using their own creativity. Children are also encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas through illustrations called Free Expressions. A dedicated dance teacher facilitates movements with music making learning exciting and interesting. The Role Play Room or The Small World or the Pretend Play with corners for Supermarket, Clinic, Kitchen and Dining etc. helps develop important social skills with lots of fun. KG1 Annual Musical, KG2 Graduation Day, Fancy Dress Day, Jazzles – a group Sing Along, Story Time and Art Attack a Colouring Contest are important days in the school calendar.
PRIMARY, MIDDLE & SENIOR SCHOOL PERFORMING ARTS
Music and theatre forms a vital part of the increasingly multi-sensory, multi-channel, media environment through which students empathize with human emotions and existence. Students learn to appreciate and explore different genres of music and performances as well as develop the skills to master the playing of instruments, both as part of the core curriculum and through extension activities beyond the normal school hours. Theatre and musicals help transform our students into exceptional communicators who present their theatrical talents and presence of mind on stage with great confidence.
Students get to explore the meeting and blending points of various approaches to art and creativity, giving them unique and deep insights into art’s cultural origins and its continuing representation of history. Students have a broad range of artistic and creative experiences through exposure within the core learning time and through access to more focused programmes that enable them to hone specific skills after school hours.
Physical education at ASPAM is a fully-integrated, key part of school activity for all ages groups of students.
The early years of education focuses on building body awareness, stamina, cardiovascular capacity, balance and strength through physical education. Over time, pupils will apply these skills to sports – both individual and team based. Many other important life lessons come through children’s involvement in physical exercise and sport; persistence, teamwork, planning, practicing, striving and humility. These are all vital competencies that students can carry into other aspects of their lives. The House system further aims at supporting the students in these aspirations through appropriate training, coaching and team building.
Work Education is an integral part of the senior and middle school curriculum and aims at preparing students for life as adults and to impart knowledge, skills, qualities and attitudes which make them self-supportive individuals and productive citizens. These essential components are provided through a well-structured and graded programme which develops the knowledge, understanding skills and values through need-based life activities.
