Secondary (Grade 6-12) OVERVIEW OF ACADEMICS AIS is accredited by Cambridge International Examinations whose programs and qualifications are compatible with other curricula. We have adopted best international practices to create a holistic curriculum which harnesses the creative talents of our students. At AIS we offer a comprehensive, rigorous curriculum that is carefully designed to engage students and give them a solid foundation from which they can achieve high levels of academic and personal attainment. These teaching methods and materials will encourage our students to develop critical thinking skills, which will eventually help them think creatively. The Scope and Sequence and related curricular are based on the Christian foundation of the school. No denominational doctrine will be promoted. Teachers will discuss differences in basic Christian doctrine, thus helping children to become discriminating readers and to understand ways to approach differences in culture and beliefs. We believe this unique approach of learning gets students ready for the real world. At AIS, our focus is to enable all students to reach their fullest intellectual, moral, creative and physical potential. We also believe in encouraging our students to take increasing responsibility for their educational experiences as they mature. Through study skills, organization, and attention to process, students begin to develop the initiative, self-reliance and independence essential for making the most of their years at AIS.
