Elementary School at M'KIS
Our Elementary Years Division serves children in Kindergarten to Grade 5. Our classroom sizes are limited to maintain optimum student to teacher ratio. M’KIS follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). The PYP is the framework for the organization of the curriculum which is driven by concept acquisition and is inquiry-based. The PYP framework allows for authentic integration of disciplines as students explore topics in mathematics, science and technology, languages, social studies, arts, and personal, social (guidance), and physical education.
M’KIS’s Language Arts program utilizes a balanced literacy approach and students receive extensive exposure to a variety of writing processes and skills. The Mathematics program is problem solving based and progresses from concrete to abstract concepts. Science and social studies curriculum integrates Technology, Health, Geography and History and involve active, hands-on learning experiences that often address real life local and global issues in order to develop internationally minded individuals who care about the world in which they live.
