The Elementary School provides a warm and caring atmosphere where students collaborate practically, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively. Elementary School at AIS encompasses ages 6 to 10 years (grades 1 – 5 in the American system). The program includes a combination of core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) taught by class teachers, and specialist classes taught by subject specialists in Arabic, Islamic Studies, Social Studies, ICT, Music, Art, Physical Education and French.
Elements of UAE heritage, history and Islamic culture are incorporated during teaching and learning activities across all disciplines.
The American curriculum followed at American International School Dubai is based on high standards of achievement in all subject areas. This broad and balanced approach is supported by a wide range of co-curricular activities which equip all students with the skills they need for the 21st century.
As an American curriculum school we start with entry to Kindergarten at age 4. Our students study through to Grade 12, where they are awarded the American High School Diploma at age 17. The American Diploma is accepted for entrance by all UAE universities and colleges and is recognized by other universities around the world.
