English Language Learning
At Knowledge Gate International School, English is the primary language of teaching and operation (alongside Arabic for those on the Bilingual Programme). For students who have English as a second language, we provide some English Language Support, however, we are unfortunately unable to offer intensive remedial programmes for students falling more than a grade level behind in English language ability.
Intensive support to develop age-appropriate English language skills may be offered to a limited number of students in each grade, however, parents are encouraged to provide additional English language support, at their own expense.
Class Size Policy
The class teacher-student ratio in Kindergarten is 1:24 and in each classroom the students are overseen by a teacher and a teaching assistant.
In all other year groups, the ratio is 1:26. Please be advised that Knowledge Gate International School retains the right to increase the class size when the situation warrants it, such as when students are grouped according to their ability in specific subjects. No class, however, will operate with a teacher-student ratio that is in excess of 1:28.
