The American School curriculum has been carefully crafted to promote understanding. It is our goal that students demonstrate their abilities to think critically, problem solve effectively, reason clearly, listen constructively, and speak and write persuasively. Class activities are designed so that the student becomes keen at observing and describing, can build explanations, reason with evidence, consider different viewpoints and perspectives, form conclusions, and make connections. It is our goal to create students that are engaged and active thinkers that can innovate and collaborate in order to creatively solve today’s problems and become agents of change in our community.
Our main mission is to integrate all these curricula into units of inquiry, in which all teachers work collaboratively amongst each other to allow students to create their own questions, conduct their own research, and demonstrate their understanding in a personalized manner through Inquiry Units or PBL units designed to bring out the best in our students: their passion, imagination, and curiosity.
