Description

Al-Mizhar American Academy (AAM) was developed to provide a nurturing and rigorous American education for girls aged 3 to 18 years. A key reason for choosing the US curriculum was inspired by the American philosophy to educate the individual, who in-turn contributes to their community and beyond. The Common Core curriculum offers students multiple perspectives of life, both from the past and the 21st century, which they can draw upon as they move from childhood into their adult lives. Embedded in the Common Core curriculum are opportunities for students to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Al-Mizhar American Academy is committed to recognizing and addressing each student’s strengths and needs, from the time they enter our school to their graduation. In an all-girls’ environment, our students focus on developing their individual voice, perspectives and opinions. During these formative years, their views of what constitutes a well-educated and well-balanced young woman are free of the influences often present in a co-educational school. Our students are empowered to apply their new knowledge and views in a safe and nurturing environment. Our school prides itself on offering students a rich range of learning opportunities. Within our Mission Statement, we highlight our commitment to promoting our students’ respect for cultural diversity, and our aim to develop intrinsically-motivated global citizens. From 4th grade, students have the opportunity to travel with their locations both inside and outside of the United Arab Emirates. Over the past two years, our young ladies have travelled to Oman, England, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Singapore and Malaysia. These international visits are an outstanding way of introducing our students to different cultures than those in the UAE.
