ALMA MATER INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

The focus at Alma Mater is to develop well-rounded young men and women who are specifically groomed to excel at the secondary and tertiary study.

We provide a safe, friendly and disciplined learning environment in which we build social and academic skills in self-confident students.

Our curriculum is recognised internationally by the best Universities in the world. Alma Mater’s excellent academic standards and highly committed staff serve to expedite our goal for our students to attain their full potential and fulfil their aspirations.

SCHOOLS

Pre-Primary School (Grades 0000-0)
Alma Mater Pre-Primary is committed to the provision of quality pre-school education. Our curriculum is aligned with the latest Early Childhood Development policies coupled with the best international educational trends. Each child is nurtured, supported and empowered to find his or her path into the future from the security of a safe and stimulating environment. We believe that happy and meaningful learning experiences in the early years will provide a sound foundation for future education.

Primary School (Grades 1-7)
Cambridge Primary offers a flexible curriculum with integrated assessment for 5-11 year-olds. Cambridge Primary sets clear learning objectives in English, Mathematics and Science skills for each year of primary education. It focuses on learners’ development in each year and provides a natural progression throughout the years of primary education, providing international benchmarks for schools. It is also excellent preparation for the next stage of a Cambridge international education, Cambridge Secondary 1 for learners aged 11-14.

High School (Grade 8-12)
Grade 8 (Introduction to IGCSE), offers a flexible curriculum with an integrated assessment. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge Primary but it is not essential to have completed Cambridge Primary before beginning Grade 8 at Alma Mater.
Cambridge IGCSE (Grades 9 and 10) is typically for learners aged 14 -16 years. Cambridge IGCSE is a globally recognised qualification and provides excellent progression to the next stage of Cambridge International Education – Cambridge Advanced (Grades 11-12) for 16-19 years.
Cambridge Advanced helps learners to develop deep understanding and independent learning and critical thinking skills which universities value highly. It builds on the foundations of IGCSE’s and leads to entry to universities worldwide.
Cambridge Advanced includes Cambridge International AS and A Level (Grades 11 and 12); both focus on equipping learners with skills they need to succeed at university, and as such, are recognised by universities and employers worldwide.
