The heart of ADP lies in the dynamic relationships between students and teachers. Our dedicated staff members believe that learning in a respectful atmosphere transfers students to a life beyond their experience enabling them to flourish as responsible citizens in a global community. We envision ADP as a community of life-long learners; thus, we instil in our students the 21st century skills that prepare them to excel in a complex, interconnected changing world.
Our mission is to provide an outstanding American education with a global perspective that encourages every student to realize his fullest potential and decide upon his college and career.
ADP treasures the intellectual, social, artistic and physical development of each student. Our core purpose is to work in partnership with students, families and the community to ensure that each student acquires knowledge skills and core values necessary to achieve personal success and to become a responsible, productive and engaged citizen within the global community.
Therefore, ADP students are encouraged to participate actively in their learning and to engage fully in the intellectual life of the school.
We believe that every student’s success is based on hard work, learning, and training and it is our job as educators to help students develop and realize the amazing properties of their brains.
We believe that when students first come to understand that learning can rewire the brain and increase their intelligence, they often become more interested in learning and less afraid to venture into new horizons.
ADP offers a safe and secure learning environment; where students feel able to express themselves and in turn reach their potential.
The ADP place great emphasis on the importance of the learning environment, whether it is the classroom, the library, multi-media-lab, or the physical education / recreational areas.
Where appropriate, and with suitable guidance, we encourage students to contribute to these environments to make them their own. Teaching staff will stimulate their learners using interactive materials and resources. All teaching rooms are equipped with interactive smart boards which enhance the students' learning performance.
We hope that you will see your own child’s personality and performance expressed within these spaces, through displays of work and other forms of creativity.
Students follow a Program-designed curriculum offering a selection of distinct subjects' courses, which encompass all fields preparing the students for national & international universities.
The school week also includes Extra-Curricular Lessons where students have the chance to develop additional skills.
Students in the American Diploma Program (ADP) are subject to Continual Assessment (CA) and Quarter Exams. Each subject teacher assesses the students’ academic achievement through homework, class work, quizzes, projects and quarterly exams.
School assessment accounts for 40% of the Diploma, and 60% is externally assessed through the Scholastic Aptitude Tests.
Attendance is essential for the successful completion of the Diploma. Students must not be absent for more than 18 days (10 % of the school year). Students must ensure that any work missed due to absence is caught – up; otherwise, the Quarterly grade will be affected.
Students and their teachers agree on a formal Discipline Code (DC) at the beginning of the year; the code displayed in classrooms to remind students, when necessary, of the behavior expected of them.
The ADP believes that effective learning occurs in an atmosphere of academic honesty in which students have developed a high sense of responsibility. This is accomplished through the cooperative efforts of parents, students and teachers.
Although the society we live in places pressure on the students to excel, the ADP will not tolerate nor condone academic dishonesty. Students can only receive marks and grades that reflect their academic standard/achievement. The administration will not negotiate grades with parents or students under any circumstances.
