Although AIS does not feature the largest community, this community without a doubt is the warmest and most affectionate community I have ever been in.
AIS wasn't just a place of integrating knowledge. It was a place with great friends and teachers who provided me with the best high school life I could ask for. I regret moments not fully appreciating the warm atmosphere within these red brick walls.
Out of all the lessons I've learnt at the American International School, the paramount lesson must certainly be the ability to love. Many may criticize AIS for its humble size; yet, it is exactly the close-knit community that lends beauty to our school.
It was no accident being at AIS. The spirit of cooperation at AIS has helped me grow. I want to thank AIS for providing me opportunities to explore my potential.
I miss AIS because friends and teachers became family at the end. Teachers took really good care of students. And the students that I met then are still my best friends now. I also miss the Cultural Fair too.
Thank you AIS for giving me many worthwhile moments in AIS. AIS is truly like a family and I’m sure this kind of connection between students-to-students and students-to-teachers cannot be easily found.
The deans were always there to talk about anything, whether it be school-related or not. I want to relive Adventure Weeks with everyone again! My advice to younger students is enjoy your time at AIS. It may not seem like the best of times, but really, it IS!
I’ll miss AIS because it’s been like another family for me for the past 7 years. The community is so small that everyone would know anyone and the tight bonds and relationships bring out the best of AIS.
I thank AIS for being such an important part of my life. The teachers and students here have truly changed my life and made who I am today. I'm truly grateful for that.
At AIS, we define our educational program by our Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs). This set of expectations, developed through a collaborative process involving students, families, teachers and administrators, 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.
