High School

We believe that education is not solely about academics.

Learning is a continuous and holistic process that engages the whole child. High quality teaching supports students in their journey to discovering
their place in the world and understanding their responsibility to contribute positively to it. Students engage in hands-on learning, design,
exploration and innovation, and are given a broad range of choices, enabling them to pursue their individual passions.

We see students as partners in learning and recognize that students have something to teach us

● Students can teach us about their future hopes and dreams.

● Students can teach us how they learn best. Students can teach us about the conditions that support their learning.

● Students can teach us about their interests and areas of expertise as well as the personal experiences of race or otherness that shape their worldview.

● Students learn by teaching.

● By listening to our students, we will help them grow as learners and achieve their goals.

Academic Programs

In addition to the wide range of academic courses, the High School offers an extensive range of athletic and co-curricular options. Through
participation in sports, clubs and activities, students will have many opportunities to grow and learn beyond the classroom.

The American High School Diploma program is aligned to the AERO Common Core Plus curricular standards and offers courses in English, Science,
Humanities, Math, Programming, Robotics, World Languages, Physical Education and the Arts. The curriculum is designed in interdisciplinary, project-
based units which challenges students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. Technology standards are interwoven into all curricular units.
