We provide a standards-based education for all of our students based on the AERO (American Education Reaches Out) framework and have incorporated character education at all levels and throughout our program. AERO standards and our Understanding by Design planning methodology assist us in providing a comprehensive, engaging, and student-centered program that focuses on developing the whole child.
In support of our mission and our Profile of the Graduate goals, Languages at ASM are core curriculum areas. Standard Arabic is taught in Grades K-12, while French is taught in Grade 2 through 12. In order to accommodate students’ different and varying linguistic abilities in Arabic and French, ASM offers two or three ability levels at each grade level.
Study of Moroccan culture, history and society is a deliberate focus in the curriculum. In several units across grade levels, students explore themes and big ideas teaching them about their environment, culture, and history.
