We work hard to foster academic excellence and individual all-round character. Critical thinking, compassion and a creative mindset are built into the program of the school. This focus on a student’s life means that academic prowess is always positioned alongside other important qualities. We guide and encourage students to reach their full potential and achieve excellence in all aspects of their lives, not just examinations and coursework.

The energy and diversity within the school community is a driving force in our students’ personal development. Shaped by our dedicated faculty, the dynamic school environment acts as a catalyst for achievement. Innovation and individualism are celebrated, just as outstanding academic success is applauded.

Our Vision for Excellence

The Pre-primary education has been designed to facilitate learning through playful inquiry. We believe that playing is the foundation for intellectual, physical, and social and emotional growth. Learning should derive naturally from curiosity and exploration.

The classroom environment is designed for children to learn through play because research shows that playing is the way in which children engage their minds, organize their thoughts and store information using all their senses. Children are given a wide range of experiences, opportunities, resources and contexts to provoke, stimulate and support their innate intellectual dispositions—their natural inclinations. Children learn how to think deeply, to ask questions and to listen to ideas. They may go on field trips, participate in events, compete in competitions, build models, and create art to support their learning.

In Primary School, students gradually move from a developmentally based program toward a more formalized approach to learning. Children continue to learn by doing, practicing previously learned skills and acquiring new ones. Teachers encourage the development of learning dispositions such as working independently, participating actively in class, and demonstrating self-motivation. They endeavor to stimulate every child’s interest, curiosity and creativity, to challenge each student to fulfill his/her potential, and to promote a true love of learning.

Individual and group work in all core subjects is used to enhance students’ problem-solving, critical-thinking and logic skills. AHPS students come from many different schools and learning environments, and their learning needs are assessed regularly to ensure their success. Collaboration and responsibility are emphasized throughout primary school.

For Middle School, we have identified curriculum goals considered essential to the learning process and development of 10- to 14-year-old. These goals are the source from which specific subject-based skills flow.

In their middle school courses, students in Grades 5-8 engage in the process of meeting the essential curricular goals. Middle school students strive to be independent learners and acquire a range of thinking skills, comprehension, interpretation, extrapolation and synthesis. They learn to read for comprehension and appreciate a variety of reading materials. Middle school students apply mathematical skills and concepts to relevant academic and real-life situations and apply scientific principles, skills and attitudes to problem-solving. They acquire and use reading, writing and speaking skills in another language. Middle School students are encouraged to recognize the need for a healthy body and mind, and to express their creative potential through the arts.

The Middle School believes it is essential for students to make connections and see relationships among various subject areas as well as in the outside world. They are encouraged to acquire the required life skills to organize projects and themselves. They learn to locate and research information using a variety of means and to use technology as a tool to enhance the acquisition, analysis, communication and presentation of information.

Experiential Learning 

The Middle School offers field study experiences appropriate to the school’s curriculum and to the students’ developmental needs. These trips make the best use of the school’s unique location and provide outstanding learning experiences that are an integral part of the school’s curriculum.

Blended Learning Model 

This methodology combines the experiences of group work in the classroom with individual learning in Media Labs, so that collaborative and autonomous work is facilitated.

Our High School Program has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. It aims to help students develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically, develop the skills and a positive attitude towards learning that will prepare them for higher education, undertake in-depth research into an area of interest through the lens of one or more academic disciplines in the extended essay and enhance their personal and interpersonal development through creativity, action and service

STEAM Education 

This uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. STEAM empowers teachers to employ project-based learning that crosses each of the five disciplines and fosters an inclusive learning environment in which all students are able to engage and contribute. In today’s world, setting students up for future success means exposing them to these disciplines holistically in order to develop their critical thinking skills.

Project Based Learning 

Project based learning engages students in solving a real-world problem by actively engaging in personally meaningful projects in the form of Student Exchange Programs. PBL facilitates students to experiment and experience outside of the traditional academic classroom, structures curriculum around discrete projects, presenting students with multi-step problems to solve or asking them complex questions they are then required to answer.
