At West Yas Academy, I am focused on leading a learning community where the teaching and learning culture is centred around inquiry and project-based classrooms. By exposing and challenging students to grapple with and solve authentic real-world problems, we will empower them with the needed skills to be active change makers, positioning them to engage with the challenges the 21st-century will present. 

To that end, as Principal I believe that integrating service-learning opportunities into the curriculum that connect and engage students with their own and the greater global community are essential in their social-emotional and intellectual development. I pride myself on service leadership to the school and community, through service, leadership, and engagement and I am extremely excited to lead the continued development of West Yas Academy. 

Best wishes, 

Mr. Joseph Kotarski Principal

Our Curriculum

The American Massachusetts State Curriculum is the most highly regarded study programme in the US. Comprehensive and forward-thinking, it’s also considered one of the most rewarding in the world. A strong focus on extra-curricular activities develops well-rounded students as they earn the American High School Diploma, the standard qualification to enter leading US universities and colleges.

The teaching of Arabic subjects is based on the guidance and materials prescribed by the Ministry of Education. It keeps local and other native Arabic speaking and Muslim children familiar with their national identity and religion. In addition, our international students gain an understanding of the UAE’s heritage which helps enhance mutual understanding, peaceful co-existence and cross-cultural harmony and tolerance.
