The school’s resident physician oversees all student health related matters. A full time doctor and a nurse on duty in school document the students’ records and are on call for any emergency.
A self-financing bussing service is organized from a variety of locations within an area from Al Warqa’a and is available to all students. The cost of the service depends on the location. All buses are operated by independent companies whose standards are monitored by ISAS. All buses will be equipped with seat belts and a GPS system which allows you to track the route of the bus.
We designed our labs with sufficient spaces to allow for the theory session to be presented in the laboratory, and the experimental aspects of the same session to be completed in the adjacent section.
The pre-engineering and pre-med programs prescribed in the ISAS mandate, which form the main core of the ISAS curriculum, require adequate support in practice apart from the classroom theory. There are 5 technology rooms on campus that exceed the standard laboratory experience in the exposure level and derived experience. Here a student is exposed to processes in engineering, and experiences first-hand the conceptual applications that he would not have been able to visualize otherwise.
Art workshop: Art instruction, as a discipline, provides students with a unique and distinctive mode of learning and perceiving which is not taught by other subject areas of the school curriculum. With all this in mind, and with a pre-mass communication course and a pre-design course underway at ISAS, it was necessary to create an art program that flows into the planned concepts and allows adaptability to it. Essential to this is the arts workshop, which is strategically placed between all the outdoor playgrounds at ISAS to give the students easy access during their free time.
ISAS offers a host of online services that open a direct link between parents, students, teachers and the school administration. We are using various technologies, beyond the traditional formats, to communicate in a time-efficient way with our community.
The school library, equipped with a rich collection of educational materials and the latest Information Technology, is at the centre of the school. There are ample collections of books, reference materials, newspapers, periodicals, audio and visual materials, reference and educational programs on CD-ROM's, and professional journals for teachers. It is equipped with state of the art technology and computers to allow online research and data access. It is designed with maximum efficiency, furnished in warm wooden designs, and can seat 100 students. There is an additional smaller library on campus designed around students of the lower classes, allowing them to be in a friendly and less exact ambiance. These are also adequately equipped and technology supported.
The school’s engineering design was purposely built to include a large music and choir room with a main stage and several acoustically sealed cubicles for individual training. Another room is set for the students of K-8 so that all students, regardless of age, cultural heritage, or prior ability, should participate fully in the highest quality musical experiences possible and develop their skills further.
Designed with a futuristic outlook, the Visual Arts and Science Center is an advanced learning and leisure facility that is accessible only to those students who academically progress and deserve a unique reward. It is equipped with 2 computer-controlled deep space telescopes, multimedia computers with advanced graphic design applications and film editing suites, and a host of gadgets, support tools and mechanisms that keep the members busy and entertained in an environment of education and learning.
At ISAS, all classes from k-12 are equipped with full multimedia capability. This will allow our teachers to actively access our database and library and the internet to retrieve data, and therefore enhance the classroom material with pre-designed and approved processes. This allows our students to develop and learn through active engagement. The classroom technology components include a 3000 lumens multimedia projector, an interactive white board and a classroom server wired into the main network and database servers. In grades 9–12, where the Notebooks 4 Books (N4B) environment is deployed, the technology is even more advanced.
The Document Management Center at ISAS offers tremendous publishing and printing capabilities in the following areas:
Through its advanced software and design, this document management solution is integrated into the rest of a school’s operation to allow for a seamless process. From the moment a student registers, they are allotted with the appropriate text books and printed materials. Furthermore, their parents are continuously in touch with the students learning environment via the various publications and printed communications.
ISAS has a fully equipped recording studio, ready for students to record and edit their singing and performances.
