The Upper School accepts students from grade 6 through grade 12, providing they meet the necessary requirements. Students wishing to enter the higher grades must be transferring from an accredited school. Only students moving to Cameroon from another country are accepted directly into grade 12. As a school accredited with MSA, we teach an American-style curriculum based on AERO and Common Core Standards. Our goal is to provide students with engaging lessons that promote active learning and deep inquiry. We offer some English Language Learner and special needs support as needed.
