American Curriculum


Curriculum Overview

The Curriculum used at Ajyal International School - Al Falah is standards-based. The American Common Core Standards are the ones adopted by the school for the teaching and learning of our students in English medium subjects.  


In order to support and promote Emirati heritage and Islamic culture, we place an equally strong emphasis on teaching Arabic medium subjects as well:  Arabic language, Arabic social studies, and Islamic education.


Our American Common Core Standards-based curriculum is focused on the specific things that we want students to know, understand and be able to do at each grade and in each subject.


The Pre-Kindergarten (PK) through Grade 4 standards for English language arts (ELA) include specific, grade level learning outcomes for reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language.  These literacy skills apply to a range of subjects and are not limited to only ELA. 


This interdisciplinary approach to literacy is based on extensive professional research which establishes the need for students to be proficient in reading complex informational text independently, in a variety of content areas.


The PK-Grade 4 mathematics learning outcomes address skills in the mathematical domains of counting and cardinality, numbers and operations, measurement and data, fractions, geometry and algebraic thinking.
