Our Curriculum is based on U.S. education standards and prepares students to meet entry requirements for many colleges and universities abroad, most notably in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Students are required to partake in core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies) and are encouraged to also take elective courses in Art, Computer Sciences, Music, and Physical Education. Depending on their workload, students have an option to have a Study Hall period in lieu of a graded academic course, which is not noted on the student’s transcript.
Classes are arranged using block scheduling with students taking up to eight, 80-minute classes that grants 0.5 credit per semester (some advanced art classes are 160 minutes long and grants 1 credit per semester). All classes are one academic year in length. Students take four classes per day and classes meet every other day.

While there is no limit as to how many AP courses a student can take, counselors recommend that a student take no more than three AP classes per year.
On average, students take around three to four AP or college-level courses during their high school years.
