At WAY American School, our students engage with the best that American education has to offer. Students participate in project-based English and Social Studies courses that are aligned to national and state standards.

Our curriculum is designed on an online platform, HERO, which delivers the curriculum, grading, and collaboration space.

Projects are designed by certified teachers, using a project-based learning approach. WAY American School teachers and community members work together to connect projects to students needs, interests, and community.
