Middle School Principal's Message


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


Welcome to the Modern American School (MAS)! At our school, we strive for academic excellence and foster a safe and nurturing climate where students can achieve their full potential. Students are encouraged to become lifelong learners with leadership skills and universal attributes and values, which are at the heart of our school; caring, respectful, confident, balanced, thinkers, and risk-takers.


Throughout their learning journey, MAS promotes the engagement of students in various curricular activities that focus on inquiry-based approaches and authentic contexts, which would make their learning more meaningful and impactful. Besides, MAS enhances the contribution of students in numerous extra-curricular activities, events, and campaigns, including athletics, debating, community service, performances, talent shows, and other national and international celebrations, which would develop our students as contributing members of society and as global citizens.


I am privileged to be part of each student’s journey as they prepare to become young adults, equipped to prosper in life. As part of our school’s philosophy, we strongly believe that partnership amongst all stakeholders and working together to achieve the best educational outcome for our students is central to their success. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact our school for further information and support.


Once again, we welcome you to Modern American School and look forward to a fruitful and successful academic year. Our school is a place where students show love for learning, deep respect for diversity, and appreciation for the world around them.
