Middle & High School curriculum

ZIC middle and high school program consists of a challenging program offering the American Diploma which is recognized nationally and internationally. The secondary school program is based entirely on the US curriculum; however, Arabic, Turkish, and Islamic Studies are provided to enhance students’ identity and enable them to communicate in the Turkish environment.

Our extensive research and understanding of the child's role in their learning process support our intention to provide children with a holistic environment in which all areas of knowledge are to be integrated. Our curriculum is based on flexible, differentiated instruction that provokes inquiry, active learning, collaborative work, and problem-solving skills.

The middle and high school curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards. These standards have been adopted, and adapted to suit the needs of universities both in Turkey and abroad. The schedule consists of obligatory core subjects and electives that broaden the knowledge of students. The curriculum prepares the students for SAT skills and strategies which is incorporated within the English language arts and mathematic programs.

The school provides the students with positive and collaborative school climate which caters for the needs of the diversity of cultures. Students explore issues and topics of relevance to them through different venues such as student council, TEDx club, and English club. Participating in extracurricular activities encourages students to become self-motivated learners and independent thinkers
