The school offers the After-School Care Program (ASCP) for all students in need - English Section and French Section of our school. This is to enhance students’ perceptions that they can be successful at school. Children who attend these well-supervised after school programs display better work habits, task persistence, social skills, pro-social behaviors, academic performance, and less aggressive behavior at the end of the school year.

Families who are unable to help their children at home due to their busy work schedule, less proficient in the language (English/Arabic/French), fewer outside resources, and so on, could use this opportunity available at JIS for their children’s success at school.

In addition, parents who have registered their children in school on conditional basis must be enrolled in the ASCP. However, we strongly recommend those parents to enroll their children who are on academic warning or at-risk in failing the grade. Parents who need their children to have extra classes/tutoring could also take the opportunity availed in the ASCP.

IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT OUR ASCP:

  • Small class size
  • Conducive learning environment (Air-conditioned and well furnished)
  • Taught by school teachers, experienced graduates.
  • Affordable rates
  • Suitable timings

For more inquiries, please contact the SUPPORT COORDINATOR at school.
