Founded largely on North American standards, the Logos curriculum covers core areas of academics such as Bible, English, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science. Elective classes are offered to middle school and high school students to enrich the core curriculum. These classes include Yearbook, Graphic Design, Chorus, Art, Physical Education, and Drama. We also offer a foreign language, Khmer.
In addition to core classes, elementary students study Khmer twice a week. Physical education is a required part of the curriculum for elementary grades. All of the units taught in the classroom are strongly attached with our Expected School-wide Learning Results. Several AP (Advanced Placement) classes are offered to junior and senior students. At the end of the course the students take an internationally-recognized AP exam; students may receive college credit for the course if they do well on the exam. Sports are a great way to teach teamwork and encourage personal fitness and health.
Students participate with other schools in friendly matches of basketball and soccer. Physical Education is a required part of the curriculum. This includes swimming and various outdoor sports and games throughout the year. The entire student body celebrates and participates in a variety of events throughout the year. Elementary classrooms look forward to celebrating the 100th Day of School, Dr. Seuss Day, Thanksgiving, and more! Each grade plays an important role in the Christmas Program and Spring Program. Students put on creative performances including singing and storytelling. The annual school carnival is a much anticipated event. Students come up with their own idea for a booth and operate it the day of the carnival. High school students participate in dress-up days, the Talent Show, and many other Student Council sponsored events.
Community service is an important aspect of teaching children to understand their role in a community and one’s biblical responsibility to our neighbor. Elementary grades participate in community service projects together; previous projects include reading stories to children at sister Cambodian schools and collecting donations for orphanages. Middle School and High School students participate in 20 hours of individual service projects of their choice.
The ESL (English as a Second Language) Program at Logos is a “sheltered immersion program”. Students are placed in an English speaking environment and are given support so that they can interact meaningfully in the classroom. The program is complemented by all the teachers at the school, whose task it is to create an intercultural learning environment. We work with four types of support for ESL students: Language Instruction, Content Instruction, Monitoring, and Push-in Support.
Language instruction helps the student to develop concepts and vocabulary in order to receive (listen and read) and express (speak and write) the English language. The students learn both “life” and “school” English because they want to interact socially with their friends and to be successful in their classes.
Content instruction refers to the method of teaching language in content subjects such as science, math, etc. It is designed to help children participate successfully in these content areas. The ESL teacher communicates closely with the grade level subject teacher to make sure the ESL student gets the preparation they need for their classes.
Monitoring takes places when it’s been determined an ESL student can successfully cope with the activities and expectations within the classroom. The ESL teacher keeps in regular contact with the subject matter teacher to ensure that the ESL student is keeping up with the work. Additional ad hoc support can be arranged as requested by the teacher or the student.
Push-in support is when an ESL goes into the classroom and works with the classroom teacher. The teacher can help individual students while they are working with the class, take ESL groups aside for part of a lesson, give mini-lessons to the whole class, or team teach with the classroom teacher. This enables ESL students to stay in the classroom and still receive ESL support.
