High School

Grades 9 to 12

The High School serves grades 9 through 12. The curriculum in the high school is an academically challenging pre-university program with an American school curriculum focus in grades 9 and 10. The International Baccalaureate (1B) curriculum is offered for grades 11 and 12. The course of study will lead to a US High School diploma at the end of grade 12, as well as the IB diploma for those who qualify. Recently introduced  AP course selections also enrich our course offerings and options for students who do not pursue the IB diploma. 

To be successful, students must begin to think of career aspirations as well as educational plans for their years after high school and then set realistic goals for their academic program at Dubai American Academy. 

In addition, students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities to supplement their academic program. At Dubai American Academy, it is expected that students assume responsibility for their own achievements in education while working in partnership with teacher and parent guidance.
