Welcome to the AISC Middle School

As a middle school, we provide excellent learning experiences, enriching Arts, Sports & Activities (ASAs) programs and a nurturing environment for our students to challenge themselves and grow. The programs offered in grade six through eight are in alignment with our mission to foster courage, creativity, confidence and compassion. Our academic and co-curricular experiences provide students with opportunities to develop themselves as internationally-minded learners and individuals. This foundation positions students to successfully transition to schools in their home country as well as to other international schools.

Our community embraces international diversity as we consist of students from about 30 different nationalities. In this rich setting, students learn skills for collaborating and developing relationships. We embrace our host country through connections with our community interwoven into the middle school experience through our service learning program and curricular connections. Through our advisory program students explore their identity, build relationships and focus on wellbeing. Our integrated English as an Additional Language (EAL) program 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.

To fully educate the whole child, we are committed to cultivating lifelong learners and balanced, globally-minded citizens, who are prepared to positively contribute in an dynamic and interconnected world. Our programming supports this belief by empowering students with the opportunity to choose from a variety of elective classes during the school day and participate in co-curricular activities. Through our co-curricular activities, our students are exposed to the ideas of others by engaging with students across grade levels, India and our region.

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.
