AIS is a private, co-educational, independent school for students ages 3 to 18. We seek academically strong students with skills, interests, and experiences that will enhance classroom learning and contribute to the life of the school in a variety of areas. We value bringing diversity and fresh perspectives into our community, and we encourage you to spend time finding out about our programs.
We recognize that choosing a school for your child can be difficult and we are committed to providing you with all the information necessary in order to help you make this important decision.

Director of Admissions and Development
We like the school's philosophy of character development rather than just the traditional book learning.
My child is always supported by her teachers and classmates. She and I are well-informed on how well she learns in school. She now has a strong sense of achievement when she is able to know what she has accomplished and what her goals are.
I feel very happy about the way that my children participate and perform in the school programs. They perform strongly and very confidently on stage. It's a great feeling as a parent.
My daughter enjoys school days more than holidays because she looks forward to meeting her friends and learning from the teachers.
AIS suit my children perfectly! We'd sent our children to a few other international schools for the past few years and we are so glad we finally found the one that fits them well academically and socially.
In a monograph written by Patrick F. Bassett, former President of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) he addresses the question: Why Choose an Independent School? This succinct but highly insightful piece of writing draws attention to some of the key questions prospective parents and teachers may ask when considering the possibility of joining an independent school. He identifies some of the core values and characteristics that make an independent school like AIS unique from others:
Strong academic results from our AIS graduates combined with a well-organized college admissions process ensure an almost perfect annual graduation rate and admission to a university of their choice for every student in the United States and internationally.
Students at AIS consistently enroll in an AP course as sophomores (Grade 10). Majority of our graduates each year receive awards and recognitions in AP Scholar or above from the US College Board.
Students at AIS take Algebra 1 in 8th grade and consistently complete Pre-Calculus and higher levels of Mathematics in high school.
As Global Citizens, AIS students play a positive role in society; contribute to the improvement in the lives of others both within the school and the wider community. They participate in global leadership forums such as Model United Nations and Global Issues Network conferences, share a sense of collective responsibility for the planet and those who inhabit it.
As Effective Communicators, AIS students demonstrate high proficiency in English through their Language Arts program and develop digital citizenship for the 21st century. They express themselves through Visual and Performing Arts, regularly excelling in AP Art examinations and attaining high rankings in the Southeast Asia Band Festivals.
As Empowered Thinkers, AIS students are real world problem solvers and critical thinkers. They achieve outstanding results at SAT exams and are consistently awarded recognition as AP Scholars from the US College Board.
As Well-Rounded Individuals, AIS students are involved in a wide range of extra-curricular program, including an extensive sports program at both intra-mural and varsity levels. Through personal and social development activities in the arts, sports, and special interests, students are able to develop their individual talents and passion. Adventure Week is an integral part of the outdoor education and leadership program at the school.
