The Modern American School has long enjoyed a tradition of multiculturalism, international connectedness, and global engagement in issues that directly affect our daily lives and the lives of others. Over the past three decades, our mission has been shaped by our desire to prepare our students for life after graduation by giving our students the necessary tools to navigate an increasingly intricate world. Accordingly, faculty and administration at MAS are keenly aware of the importance of early preparation in life for student learning and leadership development.
This is evident in our faculty’s dynamic teaching styles that continuously evolve to reflect best practices and cutting edge theory of knowledge. For that reason, schooling at MAS is not only grounded in a strong academic platform, but more so in an educational experience that socializes and prepares our students to become leaders of their own world in a safe, supportive, and conducive environment. You will find that many of our high school students are directly involved in founding and operating the on campus student activities and societies that revolve around particular causes and worthwhile interests. This is one of many hallmark examples that our MAS education seeks to promote. Please feel free to explore some of those activities that we highlight in our Student Life section.
