Today, more than ever, preparing students for university involves more than just pen and paper. It is also necessary to offer challenging extracurricular activities, broad exposure and interaction with myriad cultures. It is with great pride that AAM has created such an environment where students are challenged to excel academically, as well as develop into culturally aware citizens of the global community. In essence, AAM offers an accredited American education with traditional values. But how does AAM create this unique environment? We begin by encouraging a mutual respect for all people. On a practical level, we celebrate different cultures by exploring and enjoying traditions unique to each. As our students learn more about various cultures and traditions, their outlook stretches and horizons broaden. Community service is another vital part of AAM's unique environment. All students are expected to take part in charitable activities to encourage a sense of social responsibility and awareness of global issues. We offer students a range of options for undertaking charity work, from initiatives within the school where older students read with younger ones; to volunteering locally with orphanages and organizations, such as Red Crescent; to international efforts, including volunteering in developing nations, such as Malaysia and Tanzania. Exposing our students to numerous cultures and involving them in community service activities to complement our rigorous academic curriculum has been highly successful in helping them to develop into well-rounded, caring leaders in our diverse world while preparing them for future opportunities.
