The Australian Independent School offers a sensible balance between academic excellence and personal development:
AIS provides internationally recognised best practice curriculum. The new Australian National Curriculum is taught from preschool age to Year 10 students. In the senior years students complete the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program. AIS graduates have gone on to study at prestigious universities around the world.
AIS-Indonesia is accredited through the Council of International Schools (CIS), having successfully achieved accreditation status in October 2015. Successful CIS accreditation means that AIS has met detailed criteria which rate the school to the highest possible standards and as such joined an elite group of international schools around the world. We are very proud to hold CIS accreditation as it highlights the quality and international nature of education provision at AIS-Indonesia and reassures parents that our school has attained independent quality assurance.
Through individualised attention and guidance, AIS provides strong academic support to meet each child’s interests and needs. Average class sizes are 18-22 students taught by a fully qualified Teacher and local Teaching Assistant, in addition to a Language Support Assistant and/or a Learning Support Assistant where needed.
AIS is fully committed to “inquiry based” teaching. This approach includes conceptualizing, reasoning, teamwork, problem-solving and a range of other essential 21st century skills.
Passion for other specific interest areas are encouraged through a wide array of extracurricular and community service activities that further challenge students to develop leisure activities and community service.
The AIS student community is multicultural, consisting of children from over 30 nationalities. Having a diverse community has enabled AIS students to foster strong cultural and global competencies and further supports our mission to graduate respectful, knowledgeable and empathetic citizens.
AIS has become a second home that welcomes everyone regardless of nationality, race, religion, language or learning ability.
