The curriculum of the American International School is modeled on a typical American school program and meets US common core standards. It has been slightly adapted to meet the needs of our student body, made up of Egyptian nationals and children from more than 20 other countries, so that on the firm foundations of the proven system of American education, we have built a curriculum which meets with the needs of all students. Graduating with an American High School Diploma opens the door to universities in many parts of the world, not only the USA and Canada, as well as universities in Egypt.

All students study the following compulsory and elective subjects (subjects vary according to grade):

  • English Language Arts
  • Art
  • Math
  • Physical Education
  • Science¬† (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)
  • French or German
  • Information and Communication Technology
  • Arabic
  • Social Sciences (Geography, History)
  • Religion (Islam or Christianity)
  • Business, Economics
  • Other electives in Grades 11 and 12

SAT and SAT Subject Tests are taken in Grades 11 and 12 respectively. The skills needed to succeed in these tests are incorporated into our curriculum, though some additional courses are available outside the school day. Outstanding students may be invited to prepare for Advanced Placement exams.
