August: It’s been a year of change for one of Ajman’s most popular community schools. In the past 12 months, the school has invested in specialist, international teachers, new technologies and upgraded facilities to meet the goals of the UAE National Agenda 2021.
A 590% increase was seen in student results for core subjects of English, Math and Science during the Measure of Academic Progress (MAPs) testing last year, due to the significant changes implemented within the school. And this summer, the improvements have continued, with a new Principal appointment and a full school refurbishment taking place.
As the school continues on its journey of improvement, experience of international standards is essential and Virginia Welp has just that. With over 25 years experience as an educator, Virginia brings both New York State Standards and UAE experience to Ajman Modern School; which will no doubt further improve the academic results for the upcoming year, enhance the student experience and aid the delivery of the school vision “To be a School that truly serves the community.”
The Board of Governors are fully supportive of the changes within the school and have been instrumental in driving improvements to align to the New York State Standards.
Speaking about her recent move and in support of this, Virginia says, “It’s extremely exciting to be part of the continuous improvement of Ajman Modern School, myself and the team are committed to building on the momentum from last year’s incredible changes, and our plans to deliver the school’s vision will allow further academic improvements and enhance the student experience whilst retaining the community aspect, which is extremely important to us”
On top of the new appointment, school refurbishments and rebranding are now complete, so students, parents and teachers can expect to see a much brighter, more welcoming Ajman Modern School this September.
