American Gulf School Sharjah is a new school that opened in August 2021.
American Gulf School is a new US curriculum school that, according to the SPEA (Sharjah Private Education Authority) website and a spokesman who provided information to the UAE press, was due to open in August 2021. There appears to be some confusion surrounding the school - it has been named both as American Gulf and Gulf American in various press statements - and its website is seriously lacking in any details.
We do know that the school is based in the Al Rahmaniya/Shaghrafah 4 area of Sharjah and that the school is supposed to open from pre-KG to Grade 12. The school is led by Principal Larry Savery.
What little we do know from the school website is the following:
The school motto is 'Aspire, Grow, Succeed'
Its Vision states "We aim to create an environment where everyone aspires to build a peaceful world, to grow through intercultural understanding and respect, and to succeed in the 21st century."
And the school Mission is to provide a "Safe and friendly environment, innovative 21st century curriculum, promotes design thinking skills, nurturing academic excellence, fun engaging lessons."
According to the school website, American Gulf Private School teaches the American curriculum for students from pre-kindergarten to grade 12. The school curriculum is project-based and student-centered. It encourages, requires, and builds critical thinking, driven by inquiry combined with both knowledge and comprehensive skills. This allows learners to make authentic connections between different theories and be able to apply this knowledge in unfamiliar real-life situations.
The website also notes that American Gulf School administration is pleased to announce that "almost all of the staff are vaccinated and soon to be 100% vaccinated. We offer full time on-campus learning for all learners everyday with full health and safety measures implemented to keep our community safe."
There is no additional information in respect of opening Grades (the website mentions KG, Elementary and Middle School), nor of fees.
