Chris Nourse

Welcome to Yas American Academy, an inspiring school where all pupils reach for the stars!

I invite you to visit our world class campus to see the quality of the learning spaces, our excellent international staff team and of course our truly wonderful students.

Our students follow the Massachusetts State Curriculum which offers a dynamic and challenging approach to learning. Through a carefully crafted sequence of learning episodes students build their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world across a broad range of subjects. From Engineering to Art, from PE to English from Arabic to History all corners of education are explored. Elementary children build up their core skills through a thematic and investigative approach. As children move into the middle and high school- options are taken which determine learning pathways that best suit your child and electives are chosen that motivate and inspire them. All these experiences lead to the High School Diploma and a gateway to Universities both in the UAE and beyond.

I look forward to welcoming you to our amazing school community.
