Academic Program

The academic program at the RUSVM Preparatory School, based on an enriched United States curriculum, is designed to develop within students an awareness of the international environment in which they live. The academic year is divided into trimesters.

Course of Study

Teachers use and follow the guidelines provided in the curriculum for the preparation of their written lesson plans. There are specific standards listed for each subject and grade level and the grading system is based on these standards.

Four Themes for a Global Curriculum Framework

Parents, educators, and business leaders worldwide were asked to give feedback about the abilities they believed young people graduating from high school should possess. Ideally, they agreed graduates would be:

  • Critical thinkers and problem solvers
  • Responsible, productive citizens
  • Self-directed learners
  • Effective communicators

Because of the importance of these global themes to all areas of learning, the RUSVM Preparatory School has purposely woven elements of these four themes into the mission, goals, standards, and benchmarks of the curricula.
