AEL's Guiding Values

Students as Leaders 

AEL students will become aware of the interrelationship between the environment and the community. Equipped with appropriate tools, students will develop their leadership skills. 

Teachers as Facilitators 

AEL faculty members operate as facilitators rather than lecturers. Teachers engage students as partners in their education enriching the overall learning experience and yielding desired performance results. 

Parents as Partners 

Parents and teachers often look at students' learning from different perspectives, but they share a common goal. This creates opportunities for innovative collaborations in support of the students. 

Community as Resource 

AEL will work to establish, retain and strengthen its relationship with the environment and the community. Furthermore, we will work to establish a culture in which the connection to the community can never be dismissed or treated as secondary to exam results.

Our Mission

We educate, empower, and equip our students to become leaders in excellence, by partnering with their parents and guardians to develop their character, decision-making, and critical thinking skills in order to prepare them for success in college and careers.
