Our curriculum is supplemented with the Bahamian Social Studies Curriculum and other programs to enhance academic development and independent learning.
Technology in the Classroom: In our efforts to go paperless, technology has become an integral role in the delivery of our curriculum. Every teacher and child in our Grade 1 - Grade 6 classes deliver, and complete assignments on an ipad, through Google classroom. This has meant that during the pandemic, switching between online and in class instruction was seamless. Additionally, our students and teachers alike, are both familiar, and competent in teaching and learning via daily live streamed lessons for those at home or travelling.
The school is equipped with 10 Apple Tv’s and Promethean Whiteboards, and students enjoy interactive instruction throughout the day.
Students also have access to a number of digital learning enhancement platforms including subscriptions to IXL, Readtheory, and other learning platforms.
Hands-on individual and group projects also play a large role in assisting our students with the skills needed to effectively research and implement knowledge through a creative approach to learning and understanding.
In addition to the core subjects, all students at The Meridian School are scheduled for weekly Spanish classes with a native Spanish-speaking instructor.
The Meridian School boasts an extensive, well-resourced Performing Arts department. Students are trained in the elements of music including: theory, choral and solo singing, and instruments. They enjoy many live performance opportunities throughout the year.
Our comprehensive Creative Arts department provides our elementary students with weekly classes, with introduction to Art History in Grades 4 and higher.
Our Physical Education program includes tennis, swimming, basketball and soccer and offers a fun, well balanced and interactive fitness program that encourages children to be healthy, while developing self-confidence, self-discipline, and teamwork.
