Children Learning Together

At AMJAD, all projects through team work.  This not only reduces the workload for the teacher, but emphasizes the importance of group work in the learning, understanding and doing of subjects.

Construction Projects: Students build something and focus on what they learned, demonstrate how it works, and explain how they would improve their product that they built.

  1. Experimental/Research/Measurement Projects: Students design an experiment to study the effects of one or more variables on an object. Students model scientific procedures by presenting their results in a group report that should include: The Problem studied, Purpose, Method, Data, Results and Conclusion.
  2. Search and Find Projects: Students select a topic (global warming, mission to planet, Mars,) or a scientist, and use primary and secondary resources to build a presentation board summarizing their findings. Students can make use of a variety of resources, including ICT.

Doing Research at School

DoResearch, the website of the Office of the Vice Prosoft and Dean of Research, provides comprehensive information about the research enterprise at Secondary School.

Dedicated Research Centers

Several independent labs, centers and institutes engage faculty and students from across the school. Academic departments sponsor numerous other research labs.

Integrated Research & Teaching

The synthesis of teaching and research is fundamental to School. Much of this faculty-driven research takes place within academic departments and interdisciplinary programs.


Secondary School is home more than 20 individual libraries, each with a world-class collection of books, journals, films, maps, databases.
