At West Yas Academy, from Grade 1 – Grade 5, we teach the yearly curriculum through six units of inquiry, two per term. Opportunities for guest speakers, excursions, theme days and parental engagement are identified and the topic overview is aligned vertically and horizontally to ensure all outcomes are met consistently across grade levels. Inquiry is an effective and dynamic process where students make connections across the subject groups of Physical Science, Social Science, History, Numeracy, Literacy, Arabic Dimension, The Arts and Physical Education, to know and understand the world. Inquiry allows the student to engage, think, create and be active in their learning and actions, providing opportunities for students to investigate, pose and solve problems, discover and test these discoveries. Throughout their Units of Inquiry, students also focus on concepts from the Student Competency Framework.  In addition to the five core Aldar Academies values, the themes of ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’, ‘Empathy’, ‘Resilience’, ‘Honesty’, ‘Care’ and ‘Tolerance’ are integrated into the framework which is designed to develop the relevant skills and qualities in students for them to become effective life-long learners, productive workers and global citizens who can make a positive contribution to the local, national and global communities.

Curriculum planning also incorporates opportunities to develop the digital literacy and computer science (DLCS) knowledge, reasoning, and skills of students that are essential both to prepare students for success in the twenty-first century and to prepare and inspire them to pursue the innovative and creative careers of the future. The abilities to effectively use and create technology to solve complex problems are the new and essential literacy skills of the twenty-first century. The DLCS standards complement our Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks; overlapping in meaningful and substantive ways with standards from other academic disciplines and offer an opportunity for all students to better apply and learn digital literacy and computer science. Much of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions central to digital literacy and computer science, such as computational thinking, also apply to other subjects, including, but not limited to, science, technology and engineering and mathematics.

OUR CORE VALUES

An education is one of the most valuable things we can possess. It influences how we see the world and contribute to it, which is why it’s so important to choose the best school for your children.  From one 247-student facility in 2007, we’ve grown into a highly sought after institution supporting over 6,500 students across seven academies. 

 Today, we are led by three simple commitments: our purpose, our promise, and our values.
