Al-Mizhar American Academy - Taaleem
American Curriculum / 314 views
Established in 2005, Al-Mizhar American Academy (AAM), Taaleem owned school, was developed to provide a nurturing and rigorous American education for girls aged 3 to 18 years. The largest student body consists of Emirati girls and the key reason for choosing the US curriculum was inspired by the American philosophy to educate the individual, who in-turn contributes to their community and beyond. The Common Core curriculum offers students multiple perspectives of life, both from the past and the 21st century, which they can draw upon as they move from childhood into their adult lives.
Embedded in the Common Core curriculum are opportunities for students to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Al-Mizhar American Academy is committed to recognizing and addressing each student’s strengths and needs, from the time they enter our school to their graduation. In an all-girls’ environment, our students focus on developing their individual voice, perspectives and opinions. During these formative years, their views of what constitutes a well-educated and well-balanced young woman are free of the influences often present in a co-educational school. Our students are empowered to apply their new knowledge and views in a safe and nurturing environment.
Providing a single-gender setting, girls are more apt to take risks and be enthusiastic. Certain boundaries vanish, they embrace sports and are more self-expressive. They feel comfortable voicing their ideas and opinions, while taking part in debates and conversations with great confidence. This allows them to build self-esteem. In other words, a more relaxed and focused environment provide all the right ingredients for a successful educational journey.
One strong advantage to our school is that curriculum can be tailored to suit a single gender class, where teachers can design lessons that have a high potential in reaching students with particular values. Studies have proved boys and girls learn differently. To illustrate an example; "girls relate to logic differently from boys, where girls are better listeners; therefore more receptive to details, while boys seek justification to support an argument."
Many of our students have studied medicine, engineering and veterinary science at their chosen universities.We offer a challenging and rigorous education within a nurturing environment, ensuring that students at Al-Mizhar American Academy are well prepared for their future plans.
