Arabic is stressed as a core subject of study from the earliest grades with the goal of making our students proficient in the use of the language.
In the Pre-Kindergarten program, students are spoken to in Arabic and are made to feel comfortable understanding and speaking simple everyday conversational Arabic. Stress is placed on correct pronunciation of the letters and words.
In Kindergarten and 1st Grade, students are introduced to the alphabet and become accustomed to reading and writing in Arabic.
In the upper elementary and middle school grades, students are introduced to a large vocabulary of conversational Arabic and they become increasingly able to understand, speak, read, and write Arabic in complex situations.
In the high school, students take University Level Arabic courses and are provided the skills to read and interpret Arabic language resources for research and learning purposes.
