AIS is a coeducational international school for children from Nursery to Year 13 (UK) or Grade 12 (US). We follow the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). We are a truly international school, currently with around 100 students from all over the world.
In May 2014 our new school opened and it has excellent facilities for up to 540 students. There are 27 classrooms, a gymnasium, a large library, a science lab, music and art rooms, dedicated play areas for older and younger children, outdoor soccer pitch, basketball court, running track, rooftop garden, parents lounge and a cafeteria.
The current situation:
Over the past 4 years the island has seen a decline in the shipbuilding industry and with the onset of COVID many project have been deferred or cancelled. This has had a major impact upon the school with student numbers falling rapidly. The school has adapted to the new reality and continues to provide an excellent education as witnessed by the recent CIS accreditation. "The encouraging reality is that despite being battered in the last few years by enrolment declines and the necessary reduction in staffing, teaching and learning continue at very high levels" CIS Accreditation report May 2021.
We are optimistic that numbers will rebound but regardless of the situation AIS is guaranteed to remain open and retains the continued support of the Seyoung Foundation.
