An inquiry-based model for learning so that students remain engaged in classrooms, investigate, learn from their experiences, and develop independence to make choices in life. The program offers our students life-long skills such as communication, collaboration, mindfulness, digital literacy, and creativity.
Aster teachers see children at the center of their learning process. The child-centered environment provides our students with the opportunity to be reflective, confident and innovative individuals who are excellent decision-makers. It is beyond rote-learning abstract ideologies from books but about understanding concepts with concrete materials. In classrooms, students reflect on the information presented to them and experience the joy of learning with hands-on collaborative projects.
Our students will be prepared for the global and technologically advanced world. As they have access to internationally resourced materials, library/ICT lab, learn about world affairs and foreign languages such as Arabic. They participate in extracurricular activities such as gymnastics, yoga/Zumba, foreign languages, pottery, and robotics/coding. Students also go on field-trips to provide them with the opportunity for experiential learning such as visiting a chef to learn how to make sushi or learning how to budget at a grocery store.
