At IAS, we realize that middle school students are in a stage of remarkable development. These are perhaps the most difficult, challenging, and fascinating times of a young person’s life. Physical, intellectual, and emotional changes are rapid and intense at this early teenage stage.
We work to provide opportunities for meeting and exceeding academic standards and gaining skills that will help them throughout their life. The school will provide a caring environment, which will enhance the students’ self-esteem, personal well-being, and academic progress.
At IAS, we uphold and engage consistently with the Athena core values. These core values help mold students to be
>. resilient and able to learn from mistakes
>. emotionally intelligent- able to develop positive relationships
>. free to think critically and make connections
>. able to use technology safely and innovatively
>. positive contributors to the school, local, and international community,
>. inspired to follow and become outstanding role models,
>. achievers in all areas of learning,
>. articulate, creative, and outstanding communicators.
We embed these values in core and non-core subjects across the curriculum. All of this is done with a view to ensuring that each and every student has the prerequisites needed to allow them to have a full choice of pathways in their high school program.
