High School

Secondary School Parent and Student Handbook

The High School Academic Program

AISB offers a full college-preparatory curriculum. Courses are oriented toward higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills, designed to challenge every student; students are encouraged to build deep understandings, to think critically, to make connections across disciplines and to apply their knowledge in understanding authentic, real-world problems. 

In addition to our core academics the school offers a range of electives and Advanced Placement courses, both on campus and online. Small class sizes, a responsive curriculum and an outstanding international faculty mean that AISB students receive excellent preparation for academic success. Teachers always have time for students; and extra academic support --and moral support-- are always available for students who need them.

Our college counselling program supports our graduating students and their families in finding the right college placements. AISB graduates attend fine colleges around the world. 

High School Student Culture

AISB High School students are articulate, hardworking and inclusive young people who take pride in the diversity of their student culture and are pleased to welcome newcomers to their community. 

Student voice is highly valued at AISB, and our faculty and students enjoy collegial relationships based in a high level of trust. Open, creative learning environments encourage AISB students to question and explore, to challenge themselves, and to seek academic excellence fearlessly. Teachers and students know one another well and work closely together to help students become self-empowered, effective learners and directors of their own learning. 

High School students interact frequently with the community beyond school, organizing events and initiating community projects of their own. 

High School Advisory

AISB supports the growth and well-being of the whole child. Each grade has a designated Advisory teacher who meets with his or her students each Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Our High School Advisory program includes health, safety and Child Protection curricula, a "student skills" strand to support students' development as self-aware, empowered learners, a college and career preparation strand, as well as learning experiences to support students' social and emotional development. Service learning and authentic community engagement are an important part of student life at AISB, and each Advisory class undertakes a range of projects to make positive contributions to the school, and in the wider community beyond.

Students in the 11th Grade spend one week of the school year in a formal community internship, in the organization of their choice.
