GENERAL PRESENTATION OF SCHOOL, PROGRAMS AND CONDITIONS OF ADMISSION

Beacon of Light is a grade 1-8 private elementary school for boys and girls. We seek to enroll students from a diverse socio-economic background in the hope that they will start their journey of learning in a school that is committed to providing a holistic pedagogical approach to learning how to learn.

Through our comprehensive academic programs and with due consideration to personality traits, we’ll help your child climb the mountain and reach the highest cliff!

PROGRAMS OF STUDY:

I. ACADEMIC REGULAR:

According to Ministry of Education (MOE) grade subject and content supplemented by other curricula and in conformity with our pedagogical practices (grade 1-8); including arts and life skills cross curricular

  • Language: The integrative approach to teaching language (Speaking/Listening, Reading, Writing, and Media Literacy) will allow students to develop and practice their communicative skills; a careful selection of activities mirroring real-world will be provided. Grammar instruction will be included in the Language curriculum beginning with Grade 1 so that students will build strong communication skills, both written and oral. Grammar knowledge will allow students to express their ideas, perspectives, and points of view with clarity and depth. The components of the Language curriculum will be reinforced cross curricular (e.g., in Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies curricula); in this way, the students will have the opportunity to develop concomitantly a significant life skill: making connections across disciplines.
  • Mathematics: In the Mathematics curriculum, students will have opportunity to self-discover knowledge that shapes our physical world. Teachers will create opportunity for discovery through activities that accommodate different learning styles building confidence for problem solving ability. Students will be challenged to explore and explain the world through a mathematical lens, as opposed to merely memorize facts. In this way, students will develop sound critical thinking skills and solve problems using a variety of thinking strategies and taking different avenues. This methodology will encourage students to develop another significant life skill: acknowledging that solutions to a problem are multi-layered and usually are attained by looking at the same issue from different angles.
  • Science and Technology: In Science and Technology, teachers will create opportunity for discovery through theme-based books, free play, movement, and field trips. Teachers will provide activities tailored to students’ interests and stimulate their curiosity about the natural world. Particular emphasis will be given to the environment where students will be taught deep respect for Earth’s natural resources, analysis of and critical thinking about current environmental issues.
  • Social Studies: The Social Studies curriculum integrates historical, geographical and cross-cultural dimensions into the study of human nature. Teachers will provide activities that allow students to understand how the individual integrates in society. Students will engage in activities that are aimed at acquiring socio-moral reasoning (placing one’s self within the broad context of the world) and consequently developing perspective-taking skills. Teachers will encourage dialogue on material so that students will be able to express their opinions while discovering the advantages of listening to others’ points of view. Students will be exposed to history from a cross-cultural perspective and therefore will be able to form sensitivity to and appreciation for the diversity of human cultures and traditions. This is an important aspect of the present day education as students will be facing an increasingly diverse and challenging global community. The Social Studies curriculum develops the perspective changing life skill.
  • Arts (Music, Dance, Drama, Visual Arts): The focus of the Arts curriculum is the development of self expression. Numerous studies have shown that the Arts are not only beneficial for developing brain activity but also one’s innate creative tendencies, which will ultimately lead to overall well being, a sense of personal satisfaction, and a positive outlook on life. In Music, students will be helped to cultivate an appreciation for various genres around the world and will also be provided singing and/or piano lessons. In Dance and Drama students will be able to express their identity through socio-dramatic activities and dance choreographies. In Visual Arts students will learn about celebrated artists throughout history and will explore their own artistic inclinations with various media (e.g. paints, pastels, collage, murals, etc).The Arts curriculum will be integrated with Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies in order to provide students with a holistic learning experience. Periodically, students will create/participate in Talent Shows where they will showcase their talents at school events for family and friends.
  • Physical Education: Physical Education is an important component of the school’s approach to learning. Physical Education classes will be offered on a regular basis throughout the school year. These classes will include games/activities that aim at developing co-operative skills.

II. ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT

The program consists of additional instruction in terms of specialized projects designed to challenge students and expose them to more complex situations through a deeper analysis of the academic material and of the activities proposed. The program aims at encouraging students to inquire how the world works and develop innovative, creative problem solving strategies.
