Why choose the school: 

“At ASCS, right from the start, the English and Arabic departments will adopt a common approach and ensure that links are established between the different subjects. In the KG department for instance, both departments will adopt an area-of-learning based curriculum and story books used in the English classes and translated in Arabic so that children can listen and interact with the same story in both languages. At the Elementary level, the school will adopt a thematic approach, ensuring that children are encouraged to make links between the different subjects. The school will also develop its own Computer curriculum that meets the objectives of the US Common Core Curriculum while referring to material used in English, Islamic studies, Maths and Science, thus encouraging children to use their IT skills in a variety of context. The school will also offer a rich and diverse Extra-Curricular program where children have ample opportunities to express their creativity and develop their talent.”
