Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Al Rushed American School (ARAS). By visiting our website, you will learn a great deal about our educational program and the school community. Selecting a school for your children is one of the most important decisions that we, as parents, need to make. I hope our school website answers the questions you may have.
ARAS offers an outstanding American education and has qualified staff. Professional development is embedded into the school calendar for teachers to work together to keep abreast of the best educational practices.
What really sets us apart are our four Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs): problem-solving/thinking skills, communication skills, character/interpersonal skills, and organization/ research skills. These 4 SLOs are the backbone of both our educational and co-curricular programs and are assessed throughout the year in all areas. Important in all aspects of life, these four skills bridge the academic world to the real world and prepare our students for the 21st century.
ARAS is more than just a learning institution. While educating the next generation of leaders is our top priority, we want our students and families to know that we are a welcoming and inclusive community that strives to help all of its members make meaningful connections with one another.
Our approach to education is distinctly different from many of the other schools in Sharjah, and we invite you to see what we have to offer. Should you have any questions about our educational program, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to welcoming you.
