The middle school benefits from an extensive range of excellent resources helping students reach their potential while developing their self-confidence, resilience, and a growth mindset. Our curriculum and inspired teaching ensures that all students enjoy a broad and rigorous instruction. The excellent facilities and a rich extra-curricular activities program complete a well-rounded education for your child.
Students in Grades 5 to 8 are presented with challenges, encouraged and inspired to stretch beyond their comfort zone and expand their learning across all disciplines. The aim is to prepare the students with a solid foundation of knowledge and support them in capitalizing their interests and talents in the process of formation of their personal identity.
The core middle School academic courses of English language arts, social studies, math, and science include project-based learning to provide real-world experiences that allow students to conceptualize, apply, and re-act new learning. AEA has also developed numerous partnerships with external private and national educational institutions such as Techno Magic Land (Tech Park Sofia), Sofia Airport Aviation School for Students, The National Gallery, and others to provide engaging first-hand experience and taste for real-life professional environments. Field trips, excursions and competitions abroad are part of our students experience all year round. AEA middle school students, members of the debate club, are traditionally recognized participants at the World Scholar’s Cup competition.
AEA students consistently achieve beyond international school group averages on Measures of Academic Progress (MAP testing) in all grade levels across all disciplines. Upon completion of the middle school cycle, all children have gained full command of the English language. Our students are well prepared for a successful transition to High School.
