Overview

International Anglo American is the only school of the Prime School Group that offers both the British and American diplomas, and is currently one of the American overseas schools in 138 countries recognized to promote an American-style program for citizens abroad. 

Unarguably, the three most important years in a child’s education is Middle school, as it represents a time of accelerated physical, emotional, and cognitive growth.

Do you remember when you were in Middle school (or Junior high, as it was called then)? Students at this phase of their development need caring teachers in their lives - mentors who have a deep appreciation for the Middle school learner and strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which they can transition to young adulthood. Guided always by our mission, we believe in the importance of helping our Middle school students develop the necessary skills to become resilient, ethical, caring, and engaged learners. To that end, we offer a curriculum that is appropriately challenging, relevant, and exploratory, and an advising program that links an adult advocate to every child, and a working partner with every parent. Our Middle schooler’s experience is enriched by their ability to engage in the visual and performing arts, athletics, and develop their interests through club and after-school enrichment programs. 

The school’s commitment to experiential learning further helps students to develop self-reliance and expand their learning beyond the classroom. The community service program engages students in meaningful experiences and projects, using their talents and skills for the benefit of others. The Outdoor Education trips in 6th, 7th and 8th grades provide students the opportunity to learn about the importance of our environment and sustainable practices, experience activities that help grow their self-confidence, develop collaborative problem-solving and social skills in an outdoor classroom.This three-year journey of middle school is critical to a young person’s emerging sense of self. Friends students are challenged to think differently, to unleash their creativity, to take risks and embrace learning – all in an effort to help discover their “inner light” and to connect more deeply to their natural talents. We challenge our students to be courageous and open minded in all their pursuits at Friends!It has been my pleasure to be a part of this educational community for over  years, working closely with students, faculty, and parents to bring our school’s mission alive.

We offer world-class American education to students from Grade 05 to Grade 12. The students don't use a uniform like the students from the Prime School British Curriculum, but have a blue and white dress code.

We are very conveniently located within close walking distance of local railway stations and offer a school bus service. The multi-purpose campus features: 

  • a Theater

  • Volleyball, soccer, tennis camp,  sports field and running track

  • Modern music and art facilities

  • Interactive whiteboards

  • Excellent computing rooms

  • Specialist science laboratories

As a well-established international educational institution, International Anglo American School prepares its students for a number of international external examinations and qualifications:

  • US Advanced Placement (AP) exams;

  • High School Diploma;

  • International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE);

  • Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) and A levels.
