Get to know more about the beautiful education system at JMS
Learning institutions must always work forward to providing excellent education to its learners; and excellence will only be achieved if education provided is relevant.
Relevant learning is having a robust curriculum, responsive teaching methodology, and authentic learning assessment. Cambridge education provides a broad and balanced programme which prepares its learners to be competent and confident and independent learners.
JMS offers Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary and IGCSE programmes to its learners. This is in order for them to have a continuity in their learning in terms of content, skills, and form of assessment. Providing a seamless Cambridge education prepares them more to be ready in their university education.
The flexibility of Cambridge curriculum enables JMS to design a programme which caters to the needs of its learners; this makes learning more meaningful , relevant, and fun. Moreover, subjects can be customised and be adapted to compliment JMS’ mission, vision, and values.
Providing a balanced education is very crucial in any learning institution. Learners must acquire the salient skills needed to help them cope with their school life without compromising their social life. In JMS, starting Year 9, the learners are given the choice to decide the subjects they want to take for two (2) years. Cambridge offers a wide range of subjects which learners can choose from. Giving this opportunity to decide for themselves gives them a sense of responsibility in their learning. This exercise prepares them to plan for their university and to take responsibility for their future.
Learners are assisted and advised in choosing their subjects. Pros and cons are presented to help them in making decisions. Teachers explain the syllabus and what is expected from the subjects which they plan to take. This is to make sure that students have a clear understanding of each subject they intend to study and also to enable them to manage their expectations.
In order for JMS learners to have a balanced school life, different co-curricular activities are organised to complement their learnings. Sporting events are organized regularly to provide a different venue for them to compete and cooperate. Performing arts such as musical plays, concerts, and band performances are staged; there are also visual art exhibits every year for learners to express their artistic side.
All these co-curricular activities are student-led events. They are tasked to organise these with the supervision of a teacher-adviser. This again, is a learning opportunity outside their classroom. They learn to prepare budgets, manage time by preparing rehearsal schedules, writing proposals, designing posters and pitching their ideas to the academic leaders. Moreover, their leadership and negotiation skills are honed.
JMS prepares its learners to thrive in their learning journey. It molds them to be:
- Reflective learners, developing their ability to learn
- Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges
- Confident in working with information and ideas- their own and those of others
- Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference
- Responsible for themselves, responsive to the and respectful of others
JMS created a learning culture of excellence, open-mindedness, respect, and kindness to its learners. All learners are given an equal opportunity to gain skills from an international education (Cambridge) and at the same time acquire the necessary understanding of others culture, norms, and values which prepare them to be citizens of the world and productive members of the society
