At AISE-West, the High School continues with the same careful supervision and attention to all areas of student development and learning as do the Elementary and Middle Schools. 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 of the Common Core from American school districts, as well as US National standards. Students are taught essential knowledge, skills and understandings, as well as important analytic and critical thinking. 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. Student learning becomes an experiential on the Week Without Walls trips; which gives students a variety of opportunities to interact with others culturally, environmentally, or through service projects.
The rapid intellectual growth of the pre-adolescence sparks many emotional and social changes. AISE-West's 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.
Secondary Principal's Welcome.
Dear AISE West Students and Parents,
Wow, time flies. I am now in my 10th year at The American International School in Egypt and I am as excited now as was when I first arrived. During the month of August, the AISE West admin team have been working tirelessly to get school ready for the 2019/20 academic year.
It is with pleasure that I welcome you to our new year. Our school focus is on helping students reach their full academic potential, developing a moral character, and acquiring social confidence, and responsibility. I am especially motivated to sustain the positive culture of kindness within our building.
I trust that reading our website will give you an insight into The American International School in Egypt. The school endeavors to address the real educational needs of students rather than what is fashionable or fleeting. In this, students are catered for in a balanced and varied program designed to suit student’s needs and interests.
Our partnership with our families and community is an integral part of the success of AISE West. We encourage you to become involved. Your feedback and support are essential to our continued improvement. I am excited about the partnerships we will build this school year.
I would like to thank the AISE West families for continuing to make myself and my family feel very welcome in Egypt. Egypt is now my home and joining this school and opting to live here was the best the best decision we have ever made. Together we can make this the greatest year ever at AISE West. Now let’s make it happen.
Mr. Mark D. Tennant
High School Vice Principal's Welcome.
