BE EXTRAORDINARY

 

At American Schools of Angola, you will NOT see desks in a row with students sitting quietly, bored and a teacher lecturing to 30- 40 students for 30 minutes.  You won't hear a bell schedule or see a backpack full of heavy textbooks that must be lugged from class to class.  ASA disrupts the factory model of education, instead opting for a student-centered model.

YOU WILL SEE STUDENTS: 

  •          working on their computer; reading, taking notes and doing activities and assignments provided by our US accredited Calvert curriculum
  •          working individually, in pairs or in small groups.
  •          free to change classes and work area, get a drink of water, take a break or go to the restroom without permission. 
  •          desks arranged in miscellaneous configurations to optimize individual learning
  •          attending video tutoring sessions, live tutoring sessions, and peer collaboration.
  •          utilizing learning tools like SMART boards, virtual reality apps and participating in interactive collaborative wall activities. 
  •          asking their teacher for assistance whenever needed.
  •          morning and afternoon mentor check ins – aligning or realigning goals for the day/week.
  •          striving for excellence as only A’s and B’s are accepted.

 

 

 

YOU WILL SEE AMERICAN TEACHERS:

  • and learning coaches working one on one with a student or with a small group of students:
