All students follow an international curriculum from grades 2 to 9, and thereafter
the United States based curriculum until they graduate with an internationally accredited
high school equivalent, the GED high school diploma, issued by the State of Maine’s
Dept. of Education, in the USA.
How would you describe the Cyber School curriculum?
For grades 2 - 9, the curriculum adheres to a universally accepted standard that
you would find in schools in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, etc. Students
will be able to re-enter traditional school at anytime. The textbooks up to grades
6 are from commonly used publishers. For grades 7 and above, our own qualified tutors
have developed the textbook resources. They are continually updated and improved
upon to cater for an ever changing world. For the GED, we have structured textbooks
to adequately cater for student preparation to pass the final exams.
Will parents be able to organize the Cyber School lessons?
No. All lessons are structured and delivered by qualified tutors. You, as the parent
are welcome to supplement with any extra education that you feel is appropriate.
What is the responsibility of the parent?
As the parent you need to ensure that your child “attends” school by being logged
in to the classroom at the prescribed times as per his classroom timetable and the
school term calendar. In addition, as would be normal in any school situation, monitor
and supervise his progress and ensure he completes his home work assignments. You
are welcome to supplement this with any extra lessons where you feel this is appropriate.
(We do offer one on one extra lessons as well)
What about examinations and student reports?
Students take graded Assessments (exams or tests) on a regular basis. The results
can be accessed in their “Assessment Report” section after logging in. This allows
parents and students to monitor their progress throughout the year. Assessments are
taken for each subject and you will quickly be able to determine whether any extra
revision or assistance is needed in a particular subject or not. If yes, you will
be able to take corrective action during the year and not at the end when it is too
late! Your child will be given a total running cumulative grade for each subject
during the year and you will be able to see how well he is doing from month to month.
At the end of each year, a transcript will be provided that shows the subjects taken
and grades achieved.
What about revision?
All answers provided in previous Assessments (exams) are available for revision purposes.
This means students can re-access all their past Assessments and see how they answered
(plus any teacher’s comments if applicable) including what they did correctly and
Does Cyber School supply text books?
Yes, we supply digital downloadable textbooks from grade 7.
We use the United States Semester school calendar from
September to June. The school day starts at approx. 08h00
and ends at approx. 14h00, from Monday to Friday. There are
regular breaks between lessons and students do not spend
more than three hours collectively per day in online lessons.
We only use qualified, experienced tutors. Parents should bear in mind that this
environment is considerably more controlled and has less disruptions than a typical
classroom, which results in a dedicated, distraction-free teacher and student environment.
This makes teaching much easier as it facilitates better quality learning, resulting
in a superior learning experience when compared to students in a traditional noisy,
distracting overcrowded classroom.
Prior to class commencement, each parent will receive the details of their child’s
tutor/s, together with his or her contact details. Each grade shall have one or more
