The school offers a performance-based educational program with a curriculum similar to that of U.S. public and private schools. Instruction, leading to individual mastery, takes advantage of small class sizes and the diverse educational backgrounds of the students. Instruction is in English. Courses include English, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, Russian, French, art and music. Soccer, basketball, karate, dance, Brownies, chess, Armenian language, drama and other activities are offered as after-school activities. The elementary grades are accredited by the
Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
The school moved to a new location during August 1999 and is located above the office of a furniture factory. There are, at present, nine classrooms (although four are small), a library, a computer lab, offices, a multi-purpose room, and four bathrooms. There is also a large playground, a soccer pitch, a volleyball court, and an outside stage. A wall surrounds the School, and there are 24-hour security staff.
