Co and Extra Curricular Program


After-School Activities

At AIS, we believe in a holistic approach to learning, and as our school philosophy is to educate the whole child, we place great emphasis on the role of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Students are also encouraged to participate in Extra-Curricular “Out of Class” activities whether they are organized by the school or by an outside organization.

These activities occur once a week for approximately one hour at a time, on Wednesdays.

The Community Service Learning (CSL) program in AIS is an important component of our educational program. AIS students are expected to be socially-responsible citizens who learn through service to the community, and who recognize their role in the local and global community. To achieve these learning goals, we require our students to engage in community service learning. We integrate community service learning projects into the classroom in the Lower School while the Secondary School students engage in the IB Creativity Activity Service program. Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership. Below is a list of NGO’s enabling our students to engage in community service.
