The Middle School at AIS encompasses ages 11 to 14 years (grades 5 – 8 in the American system). The transitional years of middle school see a shift to more student-driven inquiry and action. We balance academics with increased social responsibility to prepare students to be caring, proactive members of the school community and beyond. In this phase, students have specialist teachers in all subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Arabic, Islamic Studies, ICT, Social Studies, Art, Music, French and Physical Education.
As is the case in all sections of the school, 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.
