American Educational System

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 exceptional academic standards (AP level for core subjects) with an emphasis on the student’s overall development.

Students participate in a diverse array of core and elective courses, as well as co-curricular activities. These enhance a student’s confidence, helps develop their leadership skills as well as team-work spirit. Ultimately, our aim is to create top-tier students and prepare them for both college and their future career (CCR) which is the essence of the American Educational System.
