Welcome to the middle school at the American Cooperative School of Tunis. At ACST’s middle school, we consider it a privilege to work with your children every day to help them be their very best selves. We believe that each and every student has a gift to share with the world, and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help our middle school students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. ACST aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in middle school but also in high school, career, relationships, and life-long learning.
ACST middle school students will be taught to view themselves as learners and to think about what it looks like to be a good learner and thinker. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are as important as content knowledge. ACST students will be service minded. Taking action and helping make the community and lives of others better is a priority for ACST middle school students. At ACST, we value our partnership with parents, families, and the community, and we invite you to take an active part in helping your students to achieve their full potential.

At ACST, our learning is increasingly based on inquiry, where students take an active, rather than a passive role. Instead of the traditional model of a student as an empty vessel needing to be filled with knowledge, we are moving towards putting the student in the driver’s seat as he or she leads the learning.
