Middle school is a very critical phase in a young teenager’s social and emotional development. A deeper understanding is required from the educator’s part in collaboration with the parents and the students themselves. At RLS, we embrace our students for what they are and work on how we want them to be. We promote engagement with peers, teachers and heads through different competitions, team projects, entertainment and field trips. Participating in community service projects, enhances their citizenship and cultural awareness. We take the well-being of our students to our heart and believe that it ensures smooth academic progress.
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this welcome letter of introduction to you. I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead the preparatory and secondary stages with such a rich tradition of education. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to RLS Schools and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
Along with the teachers and staff members, we will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by RLS. By building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners, we will focus on character education initiatives, common core skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to enhance our students' skills.
Being the head of preparatory and secondary stages, it is important that everyone who steps through our doors including teachers, students and parents, is excited to be here. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.
We look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at RLS meet his/her goals and have a successful school year as we always welcome your input.
The Egyptian National Curriculum is a rich and broad curriculum which requires experienced, qualified teachers to deliver efficiently. English and French high level instruction covers all aspects of the language including literature study; Drama, Novel and Poetry in depth. Students are now expected to be fluent in foreign languages in addition to their own mother tongue. The differentiation now between the three branches of General Science is evident. Similarly, the Social Studies curriculum becomes more elaborate. Students at this phase can identify their preferences and make plans for their future studies in Secondary Stage. By the end of this stage students sit for ministerial exams which are set and marked externally.
