Understanding Your Child's MAP Results
February 25, 2021
Today, we will be sending all parents of students from K5 to Grade 10 a copy of your child's MAP results from the recent round of assessments for the year. You will receive this report via your designated email address. Here at EAB, we implement and make use of a set of standardized assessments called the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). Usually we administer the tests three times a year for each of our students from Kindergarten through to Grade 10. However, due to the constraints caused by the pandemic, our first testing round for this school year was implemented in February.
Blended Learning in Action at EAB
February 11, 2021
As we close for the annual Carnaval holiday, it is good to look back and reflect upon how far we have come. It is close to a full calendar year ago, when EAB closed its campus and went to distance learning. Many of our whiteboards stood idle for many months, with the date March 17, 2020 written on them, this being the last instructional date on campus for quite some time.
EAB's Evaluation Report
February 4, 2021
Many of you will remember that back in November 2020, EAB was visited by representatives from two of our accreditation agencies, the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Middle States Association (MSA). The evaluators spent a week virtually observing classes in action, meeting with teachers, students, parents and board members and engaging with the school's leadership team.
Developing Resilience in our Students
January 28, 2021
Here at EAB, one of the learner & character traits that we value and aim to encourage in our students and staff is resilience. This trait is stated clearly in the Upper School's Code of Honor ( "We are resilient when faced with adversity, overcoming whatever obstacles life may bring us") and reflected in the Lower School's B.U.L.L.S (S for Show Perseverance!) Right now, as we continue to live our lives while this challenging pandemic continues, the capacity for resilience seems even more important than ever. During the month of February, resilience will be our "trait" of the month.
Next Steps for Blended Learning
January 22, 2021
On Tuesday afternoon, as per our regular decision-making cycle, EAB's Board of Directors met and approved the Leadership Team's recommendation that we continue with our Blended Learning program through now until at least Friday 12 March. (inclusive of the Carnaval break time).
MAP assessments @ EAB
January 15, 2021
Next week we will be beginning the implementation of our regular standardised assessments, for the grades who will be on campus (this will continue on through into the next 3 weeks as well). For those who are new to EAB, for quite some time now the school has made use of the MAP Assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) to help monitor the academic progress of all of our students from Kindergarten through until Grade 10.
