in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion to the stu­dents.

Its East meets West ap­proach en­tails the in­fu­sion of Eastern values into Western ed­u­ca­tion by fo­cus­ing on the 3Fs – fil­ial piety, fam­ily unity and for­give­ness.

With this knowl­edge, AHIS stu­dents are equipped to face the glob­alised world with­out com­pro­mis­ing the core values of Eastern philoso­phies.

Apart from aca­demic ex­cel­lence, the school em­pha­sises holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion. As such, ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, field trips, ex­cur­sions, by Trin­ity Col­lege, Univer­sity of Mel­bourne, for the past four years. Last year, the school sent 19 stu­dents.

Year 9 to 11 stu­dents have also par­tic­i­pated in two hu­man­i­tar­ian and ed­u­ca­tional trips to Cambodia or­gan­ised by the school, which ex­posed them to the rich his­tory and cul­ture of Cambodia. They raised funds for a char­ity school in Cambodia.

To ex­pose Year 10 stu­dents to the busi­ness world, the school ini­ti­ated a Work Ex­pe­ri­ence Pro­gramme last year. Un­der this pro­gramme, the Year 10 stu­dents had a one-week work place­ment stint with com­pa­nies in Jo­hor Baru dur­ing the De­cem­ber school hol­i­days.

Twenty stu­dents joined the in­au­gu­ral pro­gramme, which re­ceived pos­i­tive and en­cour­ag­ing feed­back from stu­dents, par­ents and em­ploy­ers.

AHIS is favoured by par­ents as one of the lead­ing in­ter­na­tional schools in Malaysia with state-ofthe-art fa­cil­i­ties such as its Black­board E-Learn­ing Sys­tem as well as ex­pe­ri­enced and ded­i­cated teach­ing staff.

Its IGCSE stu­dents have won nu­mer­ous Cam­bridge Learner Awards in the Top in the World and Top in Malaysia Awards cat­e­gory since the school started of­fer­ing the qual­i­fi­ca­tion in 2012.

Last year, AHIS re­ceived a fives­tar rat­ing in the Pri­vate Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tu­tion Qual­ity Stan­dard Assess­ment (SKIPS) by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry for ex­cel­lent stan­dards in the man­age­ment and ad­min­is­tra­tion of a pri­vate ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion.

It was awarded the NAPEI Ed­u­ca­tion Ex­cel­lence Award 2016 in the In­ter­na­tional Schools cat­e­gory, Sin Chew Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Award 2016 in the cat­e­gory of Prod­uct and Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence, and Ex­cel­lence Golden Ea­gle Award by Nanyang Siang Pau.
