Our Elementary School program is committed to providing an exceptional American education for children ages 3-11 while creating a strong sense of community between students, parents, and faculty. We strive to support the academic, social, and emotional development of our students in a safe and welcoming environment that promotes life-long learning.
TAISM's Elementary School experience offers both rigor and balance and includes learning opportunities for students in the classroom and beyond. Literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies are taught in the home classrooms. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade also explore their talents through the arts, media literacy (library), music, physical education, social skills education, technology and coding, and world languages (grades 2-5).
TAISM’s elementary staff recognize that children learn in many ways and employ a variety of teaching methods, techniques, and styles to meet the needs of all our learners. We also believe that children learn best when actively applying concepts in real-life situations using hands-on experiences whenever possible. Our Learner Profile, which informs learning across TAISM, focuses our students on being inquirers, collaborators, contributing community members, risk-takers, creative and critical thinkers, balanced and reflective individuals. These pillars are driven by our school mission of developing ethical, responsible, and globally conscious life-long learners.
Beyond the regular school day, students participate in a range of educational opportunities through field trips, school-wide events, Discover Oman, and a variety of after-school activities. Though the start of these activities will be delayed for the 2020-21 school year to adhere to social distancing measures and protect student health and safety, we remain committed to ensuring students have rich experiences both in and out of a traditional classroom setting.
The Elementary Staff consists of certified and talented teachers supported by instructional assistants, technology support staff, guidance counselor,office secretary, associate principal, and principal. Technology enriches our classroom instruction through the use of laptops, iPads, and interactive whiteboards which is supported by our elementary technology specialist.
Our faculty has a strong commitment to helping students succeed in school and beyond, focusing on the growth of the whole child.
