Message from The Academic Headmistress
Welcome to The Intellect School – Middle Girls’ Section.We believe that education is a powerful tool, for its meaning is often overlooked. Education is not only to possess a command over academics but to train a mind, increasing a student’s potential and utilizing it to the fullest. In Islam, true education means to have a beam of positivity while having a staunch hold on our belief that eventually we will find light at the end of the tunnel. According to Moulana Abdus Sattar Sahab, “Knowledge that brings you closer to Allah (SWT) is real education.” On the other hand, modern philosophy says that education prepares a person for life but education is life in itself.”
Keeping the essence of this thought in mind, education at the Senior Girls also enable our students to start applying that knowledge to practical life. For instance, a student studying Economics, is expected to be able to manage basic finances of daily life, hence preparing her for the future where she might take responsibilities, either of a family maker or make a fetching career out of this fresh potential.
It is imperative to understand whether a student opts a profession or not, education is unquestionably important. For each seed laid in the garden of education today is a contribution for the greater good tomorrow; first to the society and then to the Muslim Ummah, consequently contributing to a healthy, happy and faith-wise prospering progressive society.
With this note, I hope and pray that when you send your precious pearls to us, please remember that education in present times, is a collective effort. Together, we help prepare our girls to become unshakeable roots of the Muslim Ummah.
Our aim is to make the transition from Junior II to Middle School smooth and convenient, as much as possible.
TIS Middle Section’s main focus is on a pupil’s daily learning. For achievement and progress can only reveal the academic bar set by the academic team of TIS. Hence, students study a multitude of disciplines, which include: English, Math, Science, History, Geography, Urdu, Arabic, Art, ICT, and P.E. They are discussed below.
Our primary focus is the emphasis on reading, gradually leading to independent and creative written expression. Students are encouraged to explore texts, to think about multiple interpretations and to build up on vocabulary through collaborative and personalised learning. Spelling quizzes, literature circles, guided and independent reading, internal and external literacy based competitions are just a few of the opportunities provided to The Intellect youngsters.
Like its foreign counterpart, Urdu Language is not neglected at The Intellect School. We aim to give Urdu its due importance and constantly brainstorm for new ways to create an environment conducive for our mother language. Our Urdu curriculum is designed as such that it hones a child’s linguistic growth. Our students are constantly presented interactive and learning activities to create a keen interest in Urdu Language. Hence, improving their Urdu comprehension, Urdu pronunciation, listening skills while learning new vocabulary along with the correct use of idioms and metaphoric phrases, used correctly in their daily life. At the end of the day, all such endeavours such as creative writing and vocabulary, aim to refine and cultivate Urdu Language.
The Mathematics curriculum provides a comprehensive set of progressive learning objectives. The objectives detail what the learner should know or what they should be able to do in each year of secondary education. The learning objectives provide a structure for teaching and learning and a reference against which learners’ ability and understanding can be checked.
It enhances ability of our students to think analytically and critically to have better reasoning of the problems around them. Our students experience fun learning in Maths through hands on activities. To strengthen Maths concept, brain stimulating self-study worksheets are given.

In addition, knowing the fact that it is important to learn in a technology-enhanced environment, all our lessons are planned in such a way that ICT is used. Such lessons are more stimulating and engaging than a traditional classroom environment, therefore all our students are trained to use the computer from a very young age.
