In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools Mini Guide 2018 -

The chil­dren have been at­tend­ing AIS since we ar­rived in Sin­ga­pore al­most two years ago, and they’re thriv­ing. They grew up in Switzer­land, at­tend­ing a lo­cal school in Zurich. The Heads of School, Heads of Year and the teach­ers are ex­tremely com­mit­ted, car­ing and pas­sion­ate about ed­u­cat­ing chil­dren. They have got to know each of our chil­dren as in­di­vid­u­als, which has been a key part in them adapt­ing to their new en­vi­ron­ment, en­hanced by the wel­com­ing AIS com­mu­nity.

The Ad­mis­sions Team took time to un­der­stand the back­ground, in­ter­ests and spe­cific needs of each of our chil­dren, so we knew we found the right school! AIS has an out­stand­ing aca­demic record com­bined with an ex­ten­sive range of sports, cre­ative arts, de­sign and tech­nol­ogy, lan­guages ( Man­darin and Euro­pean), mu­sic and drama pro­grammes. The CCA pro­gramme has some­thing to suit ev­ery­one’s in­ter­ests, from novice to ex­pert. Wil­low and Brook re­cently at­tended AIS’S in­spi­ra­tional Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gramme (specif­i­cally tai­lored to each year group and part of the cur­ricu­lum). They ab­so­lutely loved each day, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing white­wa­ter raft­ing, overnight camp­ing and cook­ing, just to name a few. It helped them to build their re­silience, self­con­fi­dence and abil­ity to work with other stu­dents.

There is a con­sis­tency across the teach­ers that em­braces a pas­sion for learn­ing, a culture of moral com­mit­ment and a high level of pastoral care, com­bined with a sense that learn­ing should be en­gag­ing and fun. AIS pro­motes re­silience, re­spect, in­tegrity, fair play and team­work, and every stu­dent is given the op­por­tu­nity to ful­fil their po­ten­tial.
