School Philosophy


Authorized school to implement the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and accredited by COGNIA for Schools (AdvancED)

The Modern American School aims at fostering a high standard of bilingual, comprehensive education from its Pre-K through grade 12 programs that meets, and integrates, both national and international standards.

The philosophy of MAS rests on the conviction that students should be prepared to become contributing and responsible world citizens, as well as participants in an evolving multicultural society. MAS, in partnership with parents and the wider community, instills in its students the spirit of culture, flexibility, international understanding, pride, creativity, respect, and appreciation for their heritage, and environment. Students are encouraged to see all human beings as equal, irrespective of religion, culture, ethnic origin or gender and, to deal with each other with mutual respect and compassion. Through its rigorous yet diverse programs, the school aims to guide students in discovering fulfillment and enjoyment in the ethical, intellectual, and artistic achievements of human endeavour.

MAS views each student as a unique individual to be challenged, thereby achieving his or her personal potential, and experiencing the opportunity to succeed. In light of a rapidly evolving world, it is necessary to prepare MAS students to be leaders, ready to meet the challenges of technology, global changes and peace building. Thus, it is the school’s mission to direct the energy of our youth into a creative force; therefore, shaping their characters into mature, healthy, independent, well rounded, and conscientious members of the community capable of critical thinking and problem solving.
