    Split Days - Due to the immersion component of our curriculum, children at McDonald International School spend half of their day with one teacher and half the day with another.  All teachers teaching two grade levels will teach one grade level in the morning and one in the afternoon.  We do not have split classes (two grade levels in the same class at the same time).
