Learning principles

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 the school to their graduation. In an all-girls’ environment, students focus on developing their individual voice, perspectives and opinions. During these formative years, their views of what constitutes a well-educated and well-balanced young woman are free of the influences often present in a co-educational school. The students are empowered to apply their new knowledge and views in a safe and nurturing environment.
