Expected Schoolwide Learning Results

At AIS we define our educational program by our Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs). This set of expectations articulates what each student should know, understand and be able to do upon leaving AIS.

Working from our ESLRs, our educational program equips all students with the knowledge, competencies, and orientations needed for success in a thinking, meaning-centered curriculum.

ESLRs guide teachers towards implementing programs and conditions that maximize learning success for all students in a standards-based curriculum.

Developed through a collaborative process involving students, families, teachers and administrators, the American International School states that every student is prepared to be:

A global citizen, who:

  • Values and respects diversity
  • Makes a positive difference to the lives of others
  • Assumes responsibility for the planet and its inhabitants
  • Is action-oriented

An effective communicator, who:

  • Listens actively for understanding
  • Organizes ideas to produce clear and coherent writing
  • Uses appropriate media to convey a message
  • Is articulate

An empowered thinker, who:

  • Accesses and critically evaluates information
  • Demonstrates flexibility, creativity, and innovation
  • Applies learning to real life situations
  • Is reflective

A well-rounded individual, who:

  • Leads an active, balanced, and healthful lifestyle
  • Embraces new opportunities and challenges
  • Works well independently and collaboratively
  • Is engaged
