Middle and High School
Welcome to AAAS Middle School and High School.
Our Middle School classes are from grade 6 to 8, and the High School class is grade 9.
The AAAS Middle School and High School is committed to providing a balanced program focusing on the development of the child.
The Middle School curriculum is designed to promote a smooth transition between Elementary School and High School academically and socially. It is during this time that most students experience dramatic cognitive, social, emotional and physical changes. The Middle School strives to providing a nurturing environment so that students may succeed during this tumulus time in their development.
Our aim is to prepare middle school and high school students to become leaders in meeting the ever-changing needs of the world and equip them with the knowledge to face challenges in their community. We are dedicated to providing our students with high standards of academic instruction and performance, opportunities for service to others, and a well-rounded program of activities directed toward the development of their skills, talents, and self-confidence.
Our curriculum is challenging, integrative and exploratory with a variety of teaching and learning approaches. The students are drawn to learning by caring, understanding and supportive faculty who understands and appreciates the unique developmental stage of the middle school and high school child.
Our caring and qualified teachers undergo training throughout the year in order to provide innovative lessons based on California standards and Ministry of Education standards, making sure that no learner is left behind. The Common Core Standards are designed to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life by the time they graduate from high school.
Our learning program is based on the 21st century skills. It seeks to develop critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration among the learners. It enhances strong communication skills across a range of disciplines. We are an English language school, with daily instruction in literacy, Mathematics and Science by a Homeroom teacher. Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Arabic Social Studies are taught by subject specialized teachers as per the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Education. Specialists provide instruction of Innovation and Exploration, Integrated ICT, Library Skills, Visual and Performing Art, and Physical Education and Health.
Our teachers, Head of Middle School and High School, and Social Workers department work together to make sure that your child reach the high level of learning and social growth that you want and expect. Regular on-going communication between the school and home is an important value for us, and we are committed to a strong partnership with parents.
We hope you find AAAS’s Middle School and High School to be a positive, supportive, and encouraging learning environment for your child.
