About Our Curriculum

AIS delivers an intergrated Australian curriculum that is a broad, balanced and challenging program. 

  • Why an Australian Education?

    Australia’s interactive teaching approach encourages student participation and develops confidence and effective communications skills. These skills are highly valued by international tertiary institutions, where great importance is placed on developing the ability to think creatively and independently, read widely and critically, participate in debate and function in teams.

    Our curriculum is based on the new Australian Curriculum (AC). We teach English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, History and Geography (taught as Units of Inquiry) using this framework and the remaining subjects will be taught using the AusVELS guidelines until new AC subject frameworks become available. Our Year 11 and 12  courses in Bali are accredited by the ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS).  AIS Pejaten, which is now an IB world school, offers the IB Diploma Program alongside the AIS High School Certificate. Please note that the Balikpapan campus is up till Year 8 only.

    The curriculum at AIS has been designed to provide educational opportunities that will help every student to reach his or her potential. 

    The key to success is providing the right learning environment staffed by caring teachers who love to teach and nurture each student’s special talents.

    All students are given the opportunity to achieve their personal best and to work at their own level in each subject area. The syllabus is adapted and structured to allow our students to build on their knowledge and experiences.
