1. Preschool

 

We believe that Preschool provides a solid base for later school and life success, thus our only concern as teachers, assistants, and administrators is to develop the child socially, physically, emotionally, and academically. We also try to develop the interests of each child to meet his or her needs.

At the preschool level, children learn and grasp what they need to know at this age through educational games, field trips, activities, and the teacher’s guidance. They promote social values to accept and respect others in their homes, at school, and in their community. The creativity of the child is developed mainly through art, music ,and rhythmic periods where he or she learns the concepts they need to develop.

Finally, since at this age parents play a very important role in the lives of their children, we think that only through communicating with them we reach successfully our goals.

2. Intermediate School

 

The Intermediate school

The Intermediate school in BESGB is composed of three Intermediate classes which are Int. I,II and III. These classes follow the program set by the Lebanese Ministry of Education. By the end of Int. III scholastic year, students sit for the official exam (Brevet). Students who enroll in these three classes with minimal knowledge of French are given a special French course that enables them to join their regular class after one or two years.

·         Grades VI,VII and VIII are  three classes that follow the American High School system. This system is open for students who have satisfied the requirements of the Arabic exemption set by the Lebanese government. Students in these classes take special Arabic and French courses with the help of specialized teachers.

·         Elementary VI and Grade VI are the last classes in the Elementary school. These two classes prepare students to cope easily in the Intermediate classes.

Our goals as educators in the Intermediate school is to accept students as they are and help them accept themselves, believe in their capabilities and talents, and improve. We also encourage students to accept others and respect their identity and differences. We also identify students who have learning disabilities and weaknesses early in the scholastic year and they receive special attention and help from teachers and parents.

On most of the occasions, Intermediate students are involved in many projects and activities such as art handwork, musical programs, computer projects, athletic activities, charity work and educational or recreational outings.

The general goals in the Intermediate school curriculum are to supply sufficient amount of knowledge and skills in order to:

·         Form a civilized and educated citizen.

·         Recognize the learner’s abilities and trends so that he can easily join and fit in life.

·         Acquire skills so that the learner can commit himself totally to citizenship values.

·         Complete learner’s knowledge and education to help him open to his objective and intellectual consciousness.

·         Strengthen the learner’s communication skills until he reaches perfection.

·         Enrich the learner’s terminology and expressions.

·         Promote the learner’s self-confidence and help him to be independent in his thinking so that he can balance between his freedom and responsibilities.

The Foreign Program (Grades 9 --> 12) is designed for Foreign and Lebanese students who meet government requirements for exemption from the Arabic language study. This program leads to a High School Diploma. The courses in this program are also taught in English for the following subjects: English language and literature,Mathematics, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Computer science,Economics, Social Studies, Art. French and Arabic are taught as foreign languages.

In addition to the intellectual development there is an emphasis on creative,moral and social development by providing challenges, opportunities and extra–curricular activities that are essential for producing well rounded individuals.

 




4. The Elementary School

The Elementary cycle is an essential stage in the student’s education since it is the base of the student’s development and his acquisition of a wide range of learning skills and concepts. It provides the proper basic knowledge of all subjects which enables students to move on easily with their education. In the Elementary cycle, students learn through using critical thinking and experimental discovery while working as individuals, in pairs or groups.

The Elementary cycle covers classes one through six (ages six to eleven). English and Arabic are the main languages of instruction. French is given as a second language. Basic principles and concepts of Math, Science and social studies are included in the curriculum. Other important components of the curriculum are music, art, physical education, computer and Christian education. These subjects are taught by professionals.

The Elementary cycle offers a special Arabic program for students who were living abroad and have a second nationality. These students take a special Arabic course during Arabic hours with the help of a specialized teacher. Students who enroll in the Elementary cycle with no or minimal knowledge of French are given a special French course which enables them after one or two years to join their regular classes.

Our goal as educators in the Elementary cycle is to accept students as they are and help them believe in their capabilities and talents and improve. We also encourage students to accept others and respect their identities and differences. We also identify students who have learning disabilities and weaknesses early in the scholastic year and give them special attention and help.

Elementary students are involved in many projects and activities such as art handwork, musical programs, computer projects, athletic activities. They also have many educational and recreational outings.
