Welcome to AGS Girls School

 

The Primary School (KG3-Grade 5)

The 2013 – 2014 Primary Graduates have said it best in an expression of appreciation – “The principle goal of education is to create a generation who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done – women who are creative, inventive and discoverers … Good teachers impart good education. Great teachers groom their students to become leaders. Ordinary teachers direct us along the right path, but great teachers inspire us to seek our own path. They encourage us to discover our talents.”

At AGS we follow our mission to provide students the opportunities to develop the core competencies for the 21st Century. Collaboration, digital literacy, problem solving, critical thinking and the many other skills required to succeed in this new world. Our passion is to provide the learning environment for learners to develop confidence in higher order thinking skills, to be discerning of the ever present information excess and to make authentic connections with their learning and those around them.

AGS aims to have learners connecting with their communities and with the world thoughtfully as global citizens, making positive, successful contributions to society and being formidable architects of their own futures!

The Primary Programme at AGS is based on the Cambridge International Curriculum as well as the Ministry of Education Curriculum allowing our learners to develop their identities as national and international contributors. The skill based programme enhances the social and emotional intelligences as a priority with emphasis on personal attributes and sensible self management. Within this context, the foundations of the academic programme is laid to facilitate learning progress and accomplishment in the secondary phase.

Middle School (Grade 6-8)

Welcome to Middle School

AGS Middle School provides students with a genuinely welcoming start to secondary education.

We feel fortunate to have wonderful classrooms and well-resourced specialist areas to support our learning journeys. At AGS, we all think of ourselves as learners since the school is continually developing and always improving.

We follow the Cambridge Lower Secondary curriculum framework, typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. This allows us a flexible framework for developing skills and understanding in English as a first language, Mathematics, Science, Business and ICT Starters.

The curriculum framework is designed for each subject – English, Mathematics and Science – to engage learners in an active and creative learning journey and to provide a clear teaching structure. Integrated assessments are used to monitor our learners’ progress.

Subjects taught in Middle school include:

•      English Language

•      Mathematics

 

•      English Social Studies

•      Art

•      Physical Education

•      Swimming

•      ICT

•      Business

•      Physics

•      Biology

•      Chemistry

•      French

Ministry required subjects taught:

Arabic

Islamic Studies

Quran

Arabic Social Studies

 

Also, we design the entire curriculum and assessments with the Cambridge learner attributes in mind. We have the “Framework for Learning”, which describes the AGS student. The five attributes are our way of recognising that students need to develop attitudes and life skills throughout their education, as well as academic skills, in order to be successful at university and in employment. 

We hope all our students will become:

Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others

Responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others

Reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn

Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges

Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference

High School (Grade 9-12)

Our high school follows The Cambridge Programmes, Common Core and National Curricula which encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions, incorporating quality up to date practice often research-based.

AGS as part of the global learning community of Cambridge schools, teachers and students brings its stakeholders together to share best practice and ideas and drive excellence in education. Our aim is to develop students who are confident, responsible, reflective and innovative.
