As the only southern-hemisphere school to offer both the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Australian curriculums, the Australian International School consistently achieves outstanding academic results across all areas of the curriculum.
In 2017, AIS achieved a 100-percent pass rate for the second year in a row on the IB Diploma Programme, and saw 9 students appear on the New South Wales HSC Honors Roll. Students in the lower years exceeded expectations, with 91 percent of Year 5 students achieving National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) results in the top 3 bands, and 4 “top in the world” International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) results in Maths, Drama, and more.
It extends learning into the natural environment, helping your child develop character, resilience and environmental awareness.
Unique to AIS, the ADP offers an elite training stream for talented young athletes.
Sixteen music ensembles, three choirs and more than 100 performances each year enable your child to pursue their musical aspirations and develop self-confidence in the Arts.
The school’s Reggio Emilia-inspired learning environment is purpose-built for children aged 18 months to 6 years, with every detail designed to support your child’s learning journey.
“In addition to world-class facilities, the sense of community is warm and welcoming, which enables kids to grow with confidence. I like that AIS promotes open communication with staff and students, and our children have learnt so much about other cultures and languages. Their confidence and communication skills have grown in leaps and bounds!” – Suanne Quan-Chai, mum to Charlotte, 5, and Jenson, 3, Early Years
