Greek to Me

The 12/13 YO Cultural Studies class is studying Ancient Greece. Students are examining Greek geography and its influence on shaping ancient Greek culture and history. We made 3D maps of Greece’s topography with play-doh. We also recently enjoyed a guest speaker, an Albanian historian, who discussed Albanian history during the same time period. 


Spanish 1

The Spanish 1 students are working on Healthy choices, discussing on food choices, beverage choices and expressing opinions regarding diet and health. They did a research to compare typical meals from Spanish- speaking countries, picking foods that they would enjoy making and eating.


Down to Earth

The Middle School science classes have been exploring the Earth, its structure and composition. Student groups modeled the various layers of the Earth by measuring the mass of materials representing the core, mantle, crust and ocean.


Clothing Drive

Thank you to all families who brought in items for the clothing drive. Many people in the Tirana area will benefit from your generosity during the coming winter. 



Students in French class have been talking about holiday and New Year’s celebrations. They prepared a postcard in French for their family members and wrote a letter to Santa. The French Language students are sending the warmest wishes to everyone.  Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année à tout le monde!


Seasons Greetings!

The Albanian Language students are sending their warmest wishes to everyone. Let the New Year 2018 be full of joy and happiness for all of you! Gezuar Festat! 


Smooth Writing

The Six Year Old Class put their How – To unit to good use when they prepared smoothies for themselves.   Using the writing process, students created a catchy opening to start their writing, and then wrote step by step instructions on how to make a smoothy. Finally, they finished it off with a fitting ending and picture.  It was a delicious end to our writing unit!
