Globally focused, distinctly Australian: That’s the motto that the committed team at Australian International School (AIS) practises each day.
The school is focused on elevating its educational excellence, and is also unswerving in its mission to provide a holistic, well-balanced education that successfully melds sports, the arts and academics. AIS’s students are also encouraged to have a moral commitment to bettering the world by learning to be reflective, caring and knowledgeable.
The staff at AIS believes intellectual ability alone does not determine an individual’s worth or contribution to the world’s advancement. This is why it prioritises non-selective practices in its admissions policy so students may benefit from the many opportunities the school offers.
A holistic curriculum lies at the heart of AIS, and it offers three programmes that cater to each student’s needs. Young athletes benefit from the Athlete Development Programme, while musically inclined students can join the Young Musicians Programme. Students can build their resilience and eco-awareness through the Outdoor Education Programme. At AIS’s Early Learning Village, little ones aged 2 months to 6 years are exposed to a Reggio Emilia-inspired learning environment specially designed to support a child’s journey.
AIS’s learning methodology is proven success as the school has been listed 21 times on the Higher School Certificate (HSC) Distinguished Achievers list in 2019. And, one of its students recently achieved the perfect score of 45 and the highest possible Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of 99.95 in 2019.
“The AIS school community welcomed us to Singapore three years ago and has become an invaluable support network. We really enjoy the range of student programmes offered from classroom activities, sports, the arts and learning enrichment. AIS encourages our children to be the best version of themselves, within the framework of a strong educational focus. We know that no matter where our lives take us, the boys’ time at AIS will help them achieve their full potential.” – Anne and Jason parents of Zachary Leung (6T) and Zavier Leung (4G)
