Use of technology in the classroom

Informational technology and the use of tech platforms are integrated into the NGS curriculum to provide opportunities for students to engage with technology in a meaningful and exciting manner. Whether it's through the use of touch screen panels, learning corridors, 3D displays, augmented reality, or tablets, the objective is to present multiple avenues of application and expression that enrich the learning experiences of all students. Innovation is a timetabled subject for Grades 1 upwards focusing on project based learning that attempts to solve today and tomorrow's issues through innovation, imagination and ingenuity.

Do students practice religion at the school? What religion?

NGS is an American-Islamic school and that is infused through everything that we do including our teaching, learner profile and the structure of the day to include prayer time.

How does the school accommodate non-religious students or students of a different religion?

As an inclusive school we welcome all faiths and approaches as long as they abide by NGS expectations. Students are given an adapted curriculum that allows them to forego Qur'an and Islamic Studies should it not align with their faith.

External examinations or assessments available

MAP testing three times a year and with the opening of our new high school we are looking towards Advance Placement (AP) examinations for the older students.

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

We did not assign homework in the earlier years beyond fluency work that can help support the students, project-based work that is completed over a longer period of time or optional activities that parents may choose for the student to pursue their interests. This increases to some homework in Middle School and there is a need for homework for High School courses.

Approximate hours of homework given

Depends on the subject and grade level.
