Welcome to the Elementary Department of A’Takamul International School. We strive to educate all our students on an individual basis, recognizing that each of our students is a unique individual with a distinct set of values, passions, experiences and ideas. In keeping with the school’s mission statement we encourage our students to be lifelong learners in an increasingly global society where each individual student has the necessary skills and attitudes to be successful, socially aware global citizens.
The Elementary Department is comprised of Grades 1 to 5. Students are segregated from Grade 4 in the classroom, but share common areas and school facilities throughout the day.
The Educational Program
We offer your child a broad and balanced curriculum which places emphasis upon the major aspects of children’s physical, emotional, social and cognitive development. The curriculum promotes child-centered learning and will provide your child with a challenging, stimulating environment. In the Elementary School we follow the Virginia Standards. These standards have been modified to meet the student’s needs. All the teaching resources are American schemes.
