High School

Welcome to the high school at the American Cooperative School of Tunis. In our high school, and in all areas at ACST, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, and the community and we invite you to be an active part of helping your students achieve their full potential.

 We have high expectations of our high school students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help them learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. Through our rigorous academic program and robust extra-curricular options, high school students have opportunities to explore subjects and activities with breadth and depth. ACST aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in high school but also in higher education, career, relationships, and life-long learning. ACST students will be taught to view themselves as learners and thinkers. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are as important as content knowledge. ACST high school students will be service minded. Taking action and helping make the community and lives of others better is a priority for ACST high school students.

Students need both high challenge and high support to grow as learners, and we look forward to helping students maximize their growth at ACST.

Opening Minds

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.
