Kindergarten (4-5 years)
MoE Kindergarten Programme consists of two levels, where children attend two years of mixed-gender classes:
This level prepares the children to be successful in primary level or (Cycle 1) and beyond. KG students spend their time developing social, language, physical and academic skills.
At NWPS School cycles
In 2018, Ministry of Education amended the number of school grades in each stage cycle which will be effective from the academic year 2018-2019. Each school stage will have four grades.
Basic level: primary or elementary level1/cycle 1
In this level, children complete 1 to 4. This level provides a rich learning environment to inspire this age group as they begin their educational journey.
Intermediate level/Cycle 2
In this level, children complete Grades 5 to 8. This level aims to nurture young students for the future and help them become fully-developed members of society.
Secondary level/Cycle 3
In this level, students complete Grades 9 to 12. In this level, students are prepared for the starting point in their career and place in the society. Once completing this level, the student will be granted a high school certificate, which indicated passing 12 years of compulsory education.
Educational Streams in MoE Schools
Prior to 2015, students chose either the scientific or the literary stream. However, MoE abolished this system and instead introduced four streams: General, Professional, Advanced and Elite.
All students will begin from Grade one in the general stream of learning. Depending on each student’s desire and performance, a student will be readmitted into a specific stream at a certain grade.
After finishing Grade 8, our students and based on their interest, ability and performance can choose to join the General or Advanced Stream.
After finishing Grade 9 and depending on their performance, students can choose either to remain in the general stream or to join the advanced stream. In both, general and advanced streams students will continue Grades 10, 11 and 12.
The key difference between the general stream and the advanced stream is the range of scientific subjects. Students in the advanced track will receive more in- depth instruction in maths and sciences than those in the general track.
Instruction is in Arabic, although we offer our students the choice to continually improve their knowledge and understanding of the English language, by offering Math and Science subjects taught in English, up to Grade 12.
We are proud to be the only MOE Private School in Dubai offering Math and Science in English up to grade 12.
