FROM THE HEAD OF ELEMENTARY

Welcome to the Paradise Valley Private School Website. PVPS is a co-educational school under the supervision of the Ministry of Education in Oman. We are one of the newest independent schools in Muscat, having opened our doors officially on September 2nd, 2019 with students in classes from KG1 through to Grade 3 (5 classes). Our plan is to extend our grade range each year so that our Grade 3 students will remain the senior class through elementary and secondary schooling at PVPS. We have a range of experienced academic staff from many different countries including South Africa, Australia, Tunisia, Pakistan, England, India and Oman.

One of the unique features of our school is our Inclusion Policy. While up to 75% of our student community may be mainstream, we also cater to students with diverse learning needs. At Paradise Valley not only do we have education staff who act as Home Room teachers, Arabic teachers or Specialists and Teaching Assistants but we also have a very active Inclusion Team. This team serves to assess each student who comes to us with special educational needs. Our Inclusion Team includes a Special Education teacher as well as a very experienced Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist and a Speech and Language Therapist.

Our Inclusion Team assist with the transition of students with special educational needs into the mainstream classroom. Our home room teachers and specialists enjoy the benefit of professional guidance and collaboration with our Inclusion Team to ensure that all our SEN students have their own Individual Learning Plan.

Paradise Valley Private School is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students."

Our staff have already begun working with transdisciplinary units of inquiry with all students at Paradise Valley Private School. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive international inclusive education that encourages students to be compassionate, responsible and inquiring life-long learners, with a global perspective. We have a passionate team of educators who are working tirelessly to promote a unique environment where we acknowledge that “every individual is dynamic and can learn. All children have the potential to be the best that they can be, given the right kind of intervention.” (Arun Kapur, founder of Pallavan Learning Systems who are our academic partners).

We welcome all inquiries and are happy to show prospective PVPS parents, students or staff around our current facility.
