At AIS-West, the Middle School continues with the same careful supervision and attention to all areas of student development and learning as does the Elementary School. The curriculum and methodology at these grade levels are designed to meet the needs of students in their transitional phase of emerging adolescence.
The curriculum is designed to match the best practices from American state side school districts, as well as US National standards. Students are taught essential knowledge, skills and understandings. A departmentalized program provides students with an opportunity to learn in interdisciplinary units. Real life application of subject knowledge is accomplished through integrated core curriculum in combination with technology, art, drama, music and physical education with the support of rich library media resources.
The rapid intellectual growth of the pre-adolescence sparks many emotional and social changes. AIS-West's Middle and High School nurtures trusting relationships with adults and peers to create a climate of personal growth for each student. We strive to enable all our students to become successful and confident individuals.
The Middle School at AIS-West is a transition between the Elementary community and the High School model of education. We will work towards easing this transition with communication and care.
Dear parents, families and friends,
On behalf of the entire middle school teaching faculty, welcome to the American International School in Egypt- West Campus! The 2019-2020 school year promises to be an exciting year full of rigor, exploration and creativity. I look forward to partnering with you as we guide our students in reaching their full potential.
This is my first year in Egypt and I am so happy to be here. My family and I previously lived in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, the tiny island of Majuro in the Marshall Islands and Chicago, Illinois USA. We’ve learned so much through international education and are thrilled to put down some roots in Cairo.
The staff at AISE West has welcomed my family with open arms and will do the same for middle school students. Teachers are beyond thrilled to work with you in educating your child. Encourage your children to dive in at AISE West. Experience, not only academics, but extracurricular activities as well. AISE West offers a multitude of after school programs including tutoring, sports and clubs. When a child builds a connection to a school outside of the classroom, he or she is more likely to excel inside the classroom.
I am so excited to watch this school year unfold. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at any time. My door is always open!
