Middle School:

Holt McDougal Literature-Houghton Mifflin Harcourt(Common Core)

The Middle School includes grades 6 through 8. It is based on an enriched American instructional model and provides an environment in which all children can be creative and successful. AGBS will incorporate many middle school concepts in the upcoming years as we will strive to meet the social, emotional and academic needs of middle level students. The teachers teach the core curriculum requirements of language arts, mathematics, science, social science, and Arabic language for native and non-native speakers, Islamic education for Muslims, and physical education.

Middle School teachers meet regularly to plan integrated units, to discuss student concerns and successes and to coordinate testing, assignments, and homework. The faculty and staff are constantly functioning to cater a differentiated instruction, infusion of technology, and real life experiences to the students, who are making the transition from childhood to adolescence. We obligate ourselves to provide a healthy, nurturing atmosphere and a program based on instilling respectful attitude and values in students at this stage of their development .The language standards include the essential “rules” of standard written and spoken English, and also look at language as a matter of craft and making stylistic choices.
