American High School Academics
At Utopia International school (American Division), we offer a challenging and research based curriculum, founded upon clearly defined expectations for student learning.
Our curriculum is built on excellent academic standards (AP Level for core subjects) with an emphasis on students’ overall development.
Students participate in a diverse array of core and elective courses, as well as co-curricular activities. These enhance students’ confidence, develop their leadership abilities as well as team work spirit.
Ultimately our aim is to create top students ready for both college and career (CCR) which is the essence of the American educational system.
