Learning principles

At AIS, we have a vision to be known internationally as an institution which represents educational excellence in all aspects of our operation. Our philosophy commits us fully to the notion of a holistic, rounded education, which cherishes the arts and sports as well as academics as essential to each student’s education. We are equally committed to teaching our students to have a moral commitment to making our world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. Each child is special, each is important. We are and will always remain non-selective in our admissions policy, confident that it is not intellectual ability alone that determines an individual’s worth or contribution to the advancement of our world.
