Welcome to the AISC Middle School

We, as a middle school, provide excellent learning experiences, enriching activities, challenging sports programs and lasting friendships. The programs offered in grade 6 through 8 are in alignment with the mission of the school and address the needs of our internationally diverse young adolescents. Our students are well prepared to transition into schools in the United States as well as to other international schools.

Our community embraces international diversity as we consist of students from about 30 different nationalities interacting, learning with, and developing lasting friendships. We also embrace our host country whether it is through bring in local culture and events or through fieldtrips. Through our advisory program we help students to learn about themselves, foster empathy and appreciation for others, and celebrate the unity in our diversity. Our extensive English as an Additional Language (EAL) program meets students at their level of English and provides support and instruction to learn English while learning subject area content.

We strive to provide an academically challenging environment in order to foster intellectual curiosity and a sense of responsibility in our students. We offer an American curriculum with an international perspective. Our integrated core courses break down the barriers of content allowing more time and flexibility, deeper learning and closer connections with fewer teachers. Technology is seamlessly incorporated into all subject areas and students celebrate their learning with their parents with the end of the year e-portfolio presentations. Our Week Without Walls experience expose students to the host country and builds our students independence, responsibility, and takes learning outside of the classroom.

The middle school years are a time of transition and change as students grow physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. We work as a community of faculty, staff and in partnership with parents to ensure that there is a supportive environment for this development.

We invite you to join us in this endeavor.
