About Crown American Private School | CAPS

Crown American Private School is an American curriculum school founded in 2005 and is welcoming students from Kindergarten up to Grade 12.
We follow the California State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards throughout the school, giving our students the benefit of an American curriculum in a deeply rooted Ajman community. In addition, our students follow the in Ministry of Education curriculum for Arabic, Islamic, Moral education and UAE social studies for a greater understanding of the country we all call home. Our mission at CAPS is to pursue academic excellence through an inquiry –based approach which encourages curiosity and creativity within a caring and inspirational learning environment. The American curriculum emphasizes the education of the whole child and our teaching style focuses on developing the students’ ability to think critically and ask questions. In our KG and Elementary classes, children learn through engaging in practical hands- on activities that cater for the differing learning styles of our learners. Class sizes are small and taught by expert staff, with many classes also enjoying the help of teaching assistants which enables personalized learning. Our students are warmly welcomed and settle in quickly, and the teachers ensure that all our students feel safe and happy. A well-resourced library helps children develop a love of reading and children regularly take part in small group guided reading lessons to develop reading comprehension skills. Crown American Private School recognizes the many benefits of extra-curricular activities and the positive impact these have on students’ academic achievement, character development, self-confidence and leadership skills. Students will be able to choose from a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sports, music, cooking, chess, arts and crafts, drama and community service. We can’t wait to welcome you to the CAPS community and to become part of your child’s educational journey.

We are deeply committed to implementing the National Agenda of the UAE and enabling our students to flourish and gain the essential 21st Century Skills to become confident, innovative and successful global citizens in a rapidly changing world

At CAPS, we focus on developing a child’s entire personality and our students are nurtured to expand their potential by exploring the world around them, taking responsibility for themselves and their own learning. The style of teaching here places equal emphasis on independent and group work to promote collaboration and independent learning skills.  The curriculum is structured to cater for the varying needs and different learning styles of our students including challenging brighter students with enrichment activities or supporting weaker students with an extensive array of differentiated teaching and learning strategies.

Our mission is to inspire learning and to create lifelong learners within a nurturing culturally diverse school environment. High quality teaching and learning is at the core of what we do at CAPS and my commitment to our school is to help implement a holistic approach that considers the learner at the heart of everything we do. In order to enhance high standards of teaching and learning, the school has implemented a continuous professional development program that is led by heads of department to ensure the highest standards of teaching and learning in all subjects.

Crucially, Crown America Private School views parents as partners and we actively encourage parental involvement in all aspects of school life. Our experience shows that the higher the degree of parental involvement, the higher the impact on the childs academic achievement

We know that you will be happy that you entrusted your child into our care and we are looking forward to welcoming our students and parents to our newly refurbished school campus in the next academic year as together in partnership we continue the educational journey of your children.
