Our school day begins at 8:00 and ends at 15:10, with an early release time of 14:20 each Wednesday. Students are expected to be in their classrooms and ready to start by 08:00 and may arrive from 07:45 onward. 

Chronic lateness is detrimental to learning, and it is the parents’ responsibility to make sure their child(ren) have arrived and are ready at the appropriate time. It can be stressful and confusing for students to enter a class after important instruction has been given, can have a negative impact on their progress as well as be disruptive to the rest of the class. Parents will be notified if their child is chronically late, and a conference will be scheduled to determine how to improve the situation.

Students receive instruction in Reading/LA, Math and International Middle Years Curriculum (Sciences) on a daily base. Art, Music, Physical Education and Dance are taught throughout the school year with two classes per week, and Macedonian Language classes take place three times per week throughout the school year. Computer Education is integratied with core classes as well as speciality classes throughout the year.

Students are provided a locker to store their personal items and textbooks. Each locker comes with a key, one copy of which is kept at security. There is a fee to replace a lost key. They should not bring valuable processions to school.

Students have a short breakfast snack from 09:55 until 10:10. Lunch and recess is scheduled from 12:40 until 13:30. Meals can either be brought from home or purchased from the cafeteria on a daily or semester basis. Students are not allowed to leave the building during school hours.

All classes are 50 min. long which is an ideal time for productive teaching and learning. The day starts with 15 minutes of Drop Everything And Read (DEAR/) Homeroom. There are seven instructional periods a day. Snack is 15 minutes, and Lunch/recess is one 50 minutes long.
