MYP classes at Ajman Academy choose from six Global Contexts to establish a real world framework for each unit of study. The Global Contexts and the applicable descriptors are:

  1. Identities and relationships – Who am I? Who are we?
  2. Personal and cultural expression – What is the nature and purpose of creative expression?
