The Curriculum


The curriculum implemented at AMJAD reflects the American system of standards with specified benchmarks that interpret them in addition to the Syllabus Guide of the Lebanese Baccalaureate.

The French department develops its curriculum on competence based utilizing French imported books for French language and sciences. The rigorous curriculum is delivered in a healthy school environment providing individualized attention and support. Instructional framework is delivered in an eclectic form of strategies and methods to develop the crucial skills of the students which are not limed to offering classroom discussion, projects, research, group work and student proposed options. This provides our students to qualify them for university.

Similarly French department adopts the DELF assessment from grades 7 to 12 at the center Culturelle similarly to qualified, caring and creative teaching staff.

Such mentioned curriculum at AMJAD High School not only maintains motivated students to gain college level skills but it also provides college credits across all colleges and universities adopting the American syllabus (in the US, Europe and Middle east) while they are in AMJAD.

AMJAD is very closely to contract review since curriculum requirements are developed from community needs, parental expectations and Ministry of Education recommendations. The design output is reviewed to verify that basic competence and skills to be taught are consistent with the needs analysis. AMJAD controls its curriculum by criteria for personnel who design it.
