King’s Academy, October 11, 2015 — The Lecture Hall was at full capacity on Saturday morning as over 50 families showed up to learn all about the Middle School at King’s Academy during the program’s first on-campus information session of the year.
Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid MacGregor Robinson led the event with a comprehensive presentation on the competitive program, which is set to launch next fall with the enrollment of 60 students total (30 in each of grades 7 and 8).
Before taking a full campus tour, attendees were given the chance to ask questions to a panel of King’s students who provided answers (based on their own experiences) on topics including Tawjihi equivalency options, transitioning to the AP system, and integration of Arabic and religion in the curriculum, among others.
“Families are interested in a progressive, dynamic, hands-on and child-centered middle school format,” said Robinson. “Our middle school program is going to be very different than anything currently offered in Jordan.”
