Middle school at ISG Dammam serves as a bridge between elementary and high school, marking a significant phase of growth and transition. In Grades 6-8, we follow a standards-based learning methodology. This system encompasses instruction, assessment, grading and reporting, all focused on ensuring students achieve a clear understanding and mastery of the expected knowledge and skills before moving on to the next level.
The primary subjects taught are English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts and Physical Education. As mandated by the Saudi Ministry of Education, all students also study Arabic, Islamic Culture (Grades 7 and 8), and Saudi History and Geography (Grade 6). Grade 6 students study Visual Arts and Library and Research Skills, while Grade 7 and 8 students explore both Visual Arts and Graphic Design.
In Advisory classes, students meet with an advisor daily to address social and emotional topics and topics related to their wellbeing.
Middle school students are given tailored support to cater to their unique needs, such as cultivating independence, understanding physical health, engaging in self-planned activities, navigating the complexities of adolescence, discovering new passions and fostering responsibility and empathy. Their holistic development during these years lays the foundation for their high school journey and future.
Support is further enhanced by our dedicated counselor, who collaborates with teachers and the administration. She offers both social-emotional and academic guidance, especially assisting students who require extra academic help.
Furthermore, our learning support program ensures that teachers, parents and students, especially those requiring extra assistance, receive all the necessary resources and support they need to thrive.
