Educational Road Map from Nursery to Secondary
Arabic and French are important elements of our Curriculum
We introduce Arabic Language and French Language as a second language to Tunisian and non-Tunisian students. We also make necessary arrangements and provide assistance to help students who do not have an adequate working knowledge of Arabic Language or French Language.
We are committed to follow and implement the standards expected from an international school and will continuously renew and update our teaching resources in line with current trends in the international school community.
The Arabic curriculum developed and designed with considering the curriculum of Tunisian Public Schools.
The Arabic curriculum will focus on three skills:
- Reading: Students are expected to read Arabic texts fluently
- Writing: Students are expected to write Arabic fiction or non-fiction texts
- Communication: Students are expected to pronounce and communicate effectively.
French curriculum is designed with using Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
We expect our students to complete:

Year 10 & 11 – Cambridge IGCSE (15 – 16 years of age)
IGCSE stands for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. It is a two-year programme leading to externally set, marked and certificated examinations from the University of Cambridge. Any student who takes an IGCSE subject will be gaining a qualification that is recognised globally. They are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends and so are an ideal foundation for higher level courses such as AS and A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Students typically sit seven to nine subjects in one session at the end of Year 11.
CAMBRIDGE A Levels
Years 12 & 13 – Cambridge A Levels (17 – 18 years of age)
Cambridge International A Levels are highly regarded internationally and accepted as equivalent to UK A Levels, offering rigorous, in-depth, advanced study in areas of particular interest.
