Arabic, Islamic Studies & Social Studies
Arabic Language Studies:
Learning the Arabic language at NIS International School plays an important role in our students’ lives. We believe that development of the Arabic language is crucial for both cognitive development and the maintenance of cultural identity.
The curriculum framework at NIS is based on the UAE national curriculum and is concept- and inquiry-based. It is designed to help stimulate learning.
Arabic is compulsory for Arab nationals. Arabic as a foreign language is required for students through Grade 9.
It is essential for all Muslim students to develop a deeper understanding of the Islamic concepts and knowledge. NIS believes that Islamic Studies promotes the development of student’s emotional, social and spiritual well-being.
Islamic Studies is taught with a view toward providing the highest possible standard of Islamic education and to develop critical thinkers and independent, responsible citizens.
