Student photos for our high school students will take place during the week of October 3rd. Students will be notified which day their photos will be taken soon.
Students and teachers have been settling into their CREW classes over the last few weeks and have engaged in valuable learning during their Tuesday sessions. Grade 12 began the year focused on organizational practices and study skills and has moved into researching aspects of attending university after high school, while Grade 11 classes have been building portfolios of character strengths in order to write SMART goals for the year. Our sophomores have also been working on goal setting based on the big decisions they will be making this year in their academic careers. Grade 9 has been doing some personal exploration in motivation and creating vision boards for the year, and they have also had a Grade 12 visitor who has shared with them highlights of high school - how to stay organized, joining activities, how to access powerschool - all the things they really need!
national honor society
We are excited to announce the inaugural chapter of the National Honor Society of Dubai American Academy. The National Honor Society is an international organization that recognizes students who exemplify the four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students benefit from National Honor Society membership through recognition of their academic achievements, the development of leadership skills, and service to their community.
