West Yas Academy
West Yas Academy is an American Curriculum school located on Yas Island, which its inaugural term was in August 2016. West Yas Academy is our first Massachusetts State Curriculum school in Abu Dhabi, which is the most highly regarded and successful public school curriculum in the United States. The Massachusetts Curriculum draws on a rich history of academic excellence and rigor, and has historically benefited from proximity to and interaction with higher education institutions such as Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The US approach combines student-centred planning with interactive teaching methods to produce a broad and balanced education. The curriculum is supported by a robust emphasis on co-curricular and extra-curricular pursuits which helps foster well-rounded students. West Yas Academy offers AP (advanced placement) classes during the high school years, which are courses taught using university-level syllabi that can later be accredited to a degree programme in US and Canadian universities (as per the liberal arts tradition). The curriculum will provide students with guidance and preparation for taking the SAT (the standardized examination required by US university admissions).
Where appropriate, students can take our enhanced Arabic and Islamic Studies syllabi, preparing them for the unified Ministry of Education examinations.
Our teaching staff team at West Yas Academy are internationally qualified, globally aware and benefit from a Continuous Professional Development programme to enhance their knowledge and further develop their teaching skills whilst using the latest pedagogy techniques. At the same time, they strive to impart a recognition amongst students of the importance of the UAE National Identity, local values, heritage, and culture.
Aldar Academies offer opportunities for inspirational Primary and Secondary teachers and leaders to join one of their seven high performing, successful schools in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Over 800 teachers currently enjoy a teaching career within Aldar Academies schools, delivering the respected English National Curriculum with an international dimension, the highly ranked American Massachusetts State Curriculum, and the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
Our schools are increasingly the school of choice for families in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. We offer a competitive, tax-free salary, furnished accommodation, annual flight allowance, medical insurance, shipping allowance and gratuity.
