American High School Program


Students of the Month     Honor Roll


AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL

Deeply rooted in the American Secondary Program is the belief that there are really two parts to the journey to Graduation. The Middle School program consists of a two-year program for Grades Seven and Eight. The High School Program consists of Grades Nine through Twelve.

The Middle School

The Middle School consists of Grades Seven and Eight where teachers who are specialists with this developmental age group instruct using a team approach, making connections across educational disciplines. During the Middle School years, students are prepared for the real-world by connecting to a 21st century curriculum that provides support for the unique intellectual, emotional, and social needs of the middle school student. Students engage in experiential learning and take part in a veritable assortment of electives in the areas of fine and performing arts, computer technologies, world languages, health, and physical fitness to educate the whole child. Students are encouraged to take risks and endeavor in areas they might not have experienced before. This enables these adolescents to experience a wide array of opportunities prior to deciding their educational path to university.

The Transition to High School

As a part of that transition, students in Grades Eight and Nine meet to discuss with an advisor their academic choices as they enter into the High School Program. Students think about what they hope to major in and career choices and select electives that will help facilitate the transition from high school to university. Once these meetings are complete, students will have a full understanding of their entire Individual Graduation Plan [IGP].

The High School Program

This individualized educational program continues as students sojourn through Grades 9-12 where pupils are engaged in the learning process in a rigorous curriculum based upon the Common Core curriculum standards enriched with educational technologies to help achieve the learning goals for each class. Every effort is made to ensure a broad range of course offerings are available covering a liberal arts curriculum. These courses are outlined in the American High School Program of Studies which each student receives annually at the end of January.
