NEW LAB SCHOOL OPENING IN IRAQ
AUIB Model Schools, KG and Primary, will open in September 2023. They will be based at The American University of Iraq - Baghdad (AUIB) in state-of -the-art buildings providing education for the children of Baghdad and further afield. The schools will deliver a modern English language medium curriculum, based on the American Common Core Standards Curriculum and an Arabic curriculum (Arabic and Islamic Education) based on the Iraqi Curriculum Framework. AUIB Model Schools will be inclusive and reach out to all students irrespective of their creed colour or nationality to ensure that their needs are met through our modern curriculum.
The schools will be affiliated to the AUIB College of Education. This partnership will ensure that modern pedagogical approaches to teaching, learning and research will be integrated throughout all aspects of school life.
Education plays the most important role in helping our young people face life’s challenges by developing all their skills to prepare them for their future as global citizens. AUIB Model Schools’ curriculum will provide enquiry-based learning experiences based on modern teaching methodologies and using up to date resources. Students will have access to
information and communications technology (ICT) and internationally benchmarked assessment. They will be encouraged to be critical thinkers, to collaborate and to innovate.

Who We Are
The International Association of Laboratory Schools (IALS) is an international association of laboratory and university affiliated schools engaged in practices of teacher training, curriculum development, research, professional development, and educational experimentation for the purpose of supporting member’s schools and as a voice speaking for the improvement of learning for all children.
Traditionally laboratory schools' commitment has been
to assist in preparing teachers while delivering quality instructional programs for children in the classroom. These schools are affiliated with a college or university
for specific purposes that go beyond the scope of traditional public and private institutions. Over the
years, the laboratory schools have changed to
reflect the diverse needs of the teaching
professional and have often led the way in
improving the science and art of teaching.
What We Do
IALS Conferences and
IALS offers two excellent opportunities to visit and learn from member schools. First, an annual conference hosted by a member school for those associated with or interested in Laboratory schools including educators, pre-service educators, administrators, researchers, and faculty. International tours provide educators with a small group experience at lab schools around the world to have in depth discussions about innovative practices.
Over 100 laboratory schools are associated with colleges and universities worldwide. Laboratory schools are innovative in their approach to educational reform. IALS member schools foster a commitment to educate children and educate future educators.
The journal includes articles grounded in evidence-based classroom practices, action research, and theoretically based quantitative and qualitative scholarship. Best practices, educational trends, and theoretical based quantitative and qualitative scholarship found within these pages are intended to extend beyond our respective geographical contexts.
