The Australian International School’s (AIS) “Globally focused, distinctly Australian” approach provides its students with an international education that is underpinned by the Australian curriculum.
As the only southern-hemisphere school to offer both the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Australian curriculums for students aged 2 months to 18 years, AIS consistently achieves outstanding academic results across all areas of the curriculums.
AIS not only values academic achievement, but aims to develop students into adults who have a moral commitment to making the world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. In 2018, the school achieved a 100-percent pass rate on the IB Diploma Programme for the third year running, with its second “top in the world” score of
Despite its outstanding achievements throughout the years, AIS continues to take pride in its non-selective admissions policy
and offers a place for every child, regardless of academic ability.
Unique to AIS, its Athlete Development Programme offers an elite training stream for talented young athletes.
Under the Young Musicians Programme, students get to take part in music ensembles, choirs and more than 100 performances to pursue their musical aspirations and develop self-confidence in the Arts.
Its Outdoor Education Programme extends learning into the natural environment, helping your child develop his or her character, resilience and environmental awareness.
The school’s Reggio Emilia-inspired learning environment is purpose-built for children aged 2 months to 6 years, with every detail designed to support your child’s journey.
“I had initial reservations about the Reggio Emilia approach as it was one that was foreign to us. However, through AIS’s beautiful execution, I’m convinced of its merits. It has inspired me to change my ‘East Asian tiger mum’ mentality and approach my 3-year-old’s learning with the same philosophy at home. We love how the teachers treat each child as a unique individual. They observe each child’s strengths and passions to discover how these can be further stimulated and developed.” – Dawn Tan, mother to Kimi (Early Years)
