MYP Curriculum

The MYP program aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. The program empowers students to build confidence by managing their own learning, learn by doing and inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP organizes teaching and learning through eight subject groups:

  • Language acquisition
  • Language and literature
  • Individuals and society
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Physical and health education
  • Arts
  • Design

Teaching and learning in the MYP is underpinned by global contexts which allow learners to develop their identities with an understanding to their humanity and shared responsibility to the planet. Through the eight subject groups the MYP approaches to learning provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage the application of the learners’ knowledge and skills.

Driven from the MYP eight subject groups learners at AIS take the following subjects:

Arabic Language -English Language-Math-Sciences (Biology-Chemistry-Physics)-Design Technology-Social Studies-Visual and performing arts-P.E-Business (Grades8-10)-IT-Robotics (Eureka). We are partners with Eureka; Eureka is a scientific program specialized in technological education of innovation and engineering. Eureka is considered the first academy in Jordan and the Arab world to develop the innovative capabilities of children in the areas of technology and engineering. Eureka teaches children the basic concepts of engineering and invention so they can transform ideas to useful products and services. Grade 6 takes Robotics (Design and Programing of Robots), Grades (7, 8 & 9) take Electrical Engineering, and Grade 10 takes Electronics.

In addition to that, grades (7, 8) take ICDL and computing classes (Python, App Inventor). Grades (9, 10) take Image Editing and Animations.

 Our written curriculum is designed in a way that is based on the knowledge and skills needed for students to master by the time they reach grades 11&12 and aims at preparing grades 6-10 students for specific DP requirements.  

AIS learning approach is based on Inquiry. This approach allows students to be problem- solvers and lifelong learners by connecting what they are learning to real life situations.
