WHY DID THE SCHOOL OPT FOR THE CAMBRIDGE EXAM?
JSAY undertook the daunting task of preparing students for the Cambridge Curriculum in recognition of the fact that a Cambridge education prepares students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. At JSAY, we shape the Cambridge curriculum around how we want our students to learn, helping them discover new abilities and a wider world. With the Cambridge curriculum, we are confident that our students are developing the skills they need to achieve at school, university and work.
Our choice for Cambridge exam is borne out of our passion to see young people be the very best they can be. It aligns with our vision of grooming young people to succeed and to have global relevance.
HOW IS THE SCHOOL BEST POSITIONED TO SUPPORT THEIR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE MORE USING THE CAMBRIDGE EDUCATION?
JSAY PREVARSITY offers maximum supports to her students. This is seen in our crop of highly skilled and qualified teachers who are abreast with best practices in delivering the Cambridge curriculum. We offer support to our students in and out of class so as to effectively care for all that affect their well-being. Our team of staff, state of the art facilities all function to give our students the advantage they need for outstanding achievement.
HOW DOES CAMBRIDGE CURRICULUM DIFFER FROM THE NIGERIAN EDUCATION AND HOW DOES IT POSITION THE STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE MORE IN THE FUTURE?
First, Cambridge curriculum is one that sets a global standard for education, with programmes that stretch, challenge and inspire our students. The curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. The curriculum equips students with the essential skills they need for success at university (within and outside the country) and in their future careers.
The curriculum also features innovative approaches to teaching and learning as well as assessments that are fair, valid, reliable and practicable. These assessments have real, lasting value and can be a lifelong passport to further study or employment.
Cambridge curriculum assesses what is of greatest value to our students – deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding and higher order thinking skills. The resulting qualifications from Cambridge curriculum are globally recognized, accepted by universities and employers at home and around the world. A Cambridge qualification comes with an impressive reputation, and will retain its value for a lifetime of education and employment.
With these and many more, the curriculum positions students to achieve more in the future
