We use a holistic approach to education, immersed in a rich history of tradition and excellence
Our unique curriculum is very innovative and concept-based. This ensures children are provided with multiple opportunities to develop their knowledge, as well as understanding and mastery of competencies, skills and abilities. Lessons are structured to encourage critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, while also fostering ownership and engagement. At the AGBU Schools, we inspire our children to become enthusiastic, independent and lifelong learners. Our unique curriculum is based on the Lebanese National Curriculum, but it is modified to include international and Armenian affairs and studies, and is often personalized to meet the specific needs and interests of our children.
French is taught as a fourth language, beginning from the Kindergarten classes, in addition to Armenian, English, and Arabic. Our children frequently excel in the DELF exams, receiving the corresponding diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education. On the other hand, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Philosophy, Sociology and Economics are taught in English, along with English literature and SAT, while Social Studies, History, Geography, and Civics are taught in Arabic, along with Arabic literature and language.
The main curriculum is further enriched by the study of Armenian language, Armenian History and Religion, which immerses our learners in their own heritage and culture, enhances their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, improves their concentration and their ability to multitask. The teaching of the Armenian language, History and Religion are an integral part of the school curriculum, as they are perfectly aligned with our mission to promote the Armenian identity, heritage, language and culture. This effort to preserve the Armenian identity extends beyond the classroom, and is often expressed in various activities and cultural events organized by the school.
