American Academy for GirlsDubai

American Academy for Girls

American Academy for Girls (AAG) was developed to provide a nurturing and rigorous American education for girls aged 3 to 18 years. A key reason for choosing the US curriculum was inspired by the American philosophy to educate the individual, who in-turn contributes to their community and beyond. The Common Core curriculum offers students multiple perspectives of life, both from the past and the 21st century, which they can draw upon as they move from childhood into their adult lives.

We are part of the Taaleem group of schools. Taaleem is the second largest provider of education in the region and a group that has an absolute focus on education. A strong focus on professional development and world-class facilities allow AAG teachers to be imaginative and innovative when delivering the curriculum
