High School

High School Curriculum

At the American School of Kosova we strive to offer our students a challenging and diverse American college preparatory education.

Facilitated by a caring, professional and specialized staff of teachers, we strive to empower our students to become critical, independent thinkers with the skills to participate dynamically and successfully in an ever changing global society. At ASK we believe that our school curriculum must include learning experiences that develop the whole child and that all of our students should be active and responsible participants in their own learning.

To ensure high standards of excellence, we have developed curriculums for High School that offers opportunities for our students to embrace learning and succeed academically. Real life applications of subject knowledge are accomplished through an integrated core curriculum, complimented by electives that include art, music, psychology, sociology, film and drama, journalism, photography and business.

As clear and critical thinkers with a love of learning and the required knowledge and skills, our students are certain to succeed in their future careers as well rounded, honorable and responsible human beings who contribute positively to society.

 

Homeroom Program

The American School of Kosova homeroom program for Grades 5-12 is designed to promote meaningful and respectful relationships between students and teachers, to offer individual attention to students and to provide each student an opportunity to “belong.”

Daily homeroom periods at the beginning of each school day offer students instruction and time on how to be organized for the day, week and term.

Under the supervision of a caring teacher acting as a student advocate, our homeroom program allows teachers to be effectively involved with the development of their students.
