Academics at ANCS
As an international school, our academic program places great emphasis on critical thinking and respect for other cultures and ideas. Like many American international schools around the globe, we use AERO standards to provide a framework in order to provide consistency and accountability for our curriculum.
Each multi-age classroom is taught by an experienced, highly credentialed teacher. Small class sizes at ANCS allow teachers to personalize instruction and build strong relationships with individual students and their families.
We strive to create an ideal learning environment for developing a love of learning; literacy and communication skills; fluency in math and science through our integrated STEM program; as well as proficiency in Spanish, with differentiated instruction from total beginners to native speakers through our Dual Immersion program.
ANCS teachers provide a learner-centered curriculum that engages students in meaningful individual and collaborative activities, encouraging them especially to ask questions and investigate through inquiry-based and project-based assignments.
An ANCS education challenges students to ask compelling questions, think for themselves, take responsibility for their learning, and pursue academic excellence. We foster compassion for the community through service-learning opportunities that make a real difference in the lives of those around us.
