Curriculum

The curriculum is based on high standards of achievement in all subject areas. This broad and balanced approach is supported by a wide range of curricular activities which help equip all students with the skills they need for the 21st century.

Our school starts with entry to Kindergarten at age 5. Students can study through to Grade 12, where they are awarded with the American High School Diploma at age 18. The American Diploma is accepted for entrance by all US universities and colleges and is increasingly recognized by other universities around the world.

The core program emphasizes Reading and the Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Arabic language, Islamic Education and Moral Education. In addition, students receive instruction in physical education with an emphasis on healthy living and good moral character. All students continue their studies in the core areas while being exposed to a wide variety of electives in high school such as, entrepreneurship, accounting, public speaking, business, graphic design……

Instructional objectives of the curriculum are clearly defined in all subject areas, but academic expectations are flexible enough to both support and challenge each individual learner.
