Welcome

Al-Mizhar American Academy (AAM) was developed to provide a nurturing and rigorous American education for girls aged 3 to 18 years. A key reason for choosing the US curriculum was inspired by the American philosophy to educate the individual, who in turn contributes to their community and beyond. The Common Core curriculum offers students multiple perspectives of life, both from the past and the 21st century, which they can draw upon as they move from childhood into their adult lives. Embedded in the Common Core curriculum are opportunities for students to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Al-Mizhar American Academy is committed to recognizing and addressing each student’s strengths and needs, from the time they enter our school to their graduation.
