Curriculum


American High School Diploma

     The American High School Diploma is equivalent to Egyptian High School Diploma by the Egyptian Ministry of Education decree No.155 for the year 2004. As such, students are eligible to apply for Egyptian universities within the 5% admissions reserved for international schools and foreign students. Students are also eligible to apply for American universities or universities of any other country.
    Students are obliged to study a number of subjects during grade 11 and 12 school years which are recorded on their high school transcript. All graduates must also take SAT 1 (Mandatory) and SAT 2 (optional).

Curriculum:

    The curriculum and textbooks are American and instruction is in English with the exception of foreign languages (French & German) and Arabic. We provide a broad, well balanced course of study which promotes academic, moral and artistic development. The curriculum is evaluated on an on-going basis to assure that it meets the needs of our student population. The Egyptian Ministry of Education recognizes the American High School Diploma as meeting the requirements for the general secondary certificate of education.

Arabic:

    Arabic is offered from the elementary to the high school level in an integrated program that prepares both native and non-native speakers to communicate fluently both orally and in writing.

Elective Learning Activities / Fine Arts Exploration:

      These activities take place on a designated day each week. They are one hour long and are taught by teachers who have a special interest in that activity. Examples include: Drama, Journalism, Art, Dance, Fashion Design, Music, Science, etc.
