The Dexters moved overseas from the USA in 2009 because it was important for us to experience the future, today, in the context of an international program.
It is why we decided to join the AISZ community and to be a part of its unique future.
At AISZ, our vision for the secondary student is simple: To develop internationally-minded people who help to make meaningful contributions in the school, community and the world. Our means to achieve this vision is through an emphasis on integrated learning, global engagement, and intercultural understanding.
The AISZ medium of instruction is English, and applicant students must meet prerequisite levels of academic English proficiency, especially upon entering the International Baccalaureate Programme in Grade 11. Students are provided English language learning support at all levels.
As an inclusive school, AISZ has no prerequisites for entry into the full IB program. We encourage even students who have not had strong academic records to try if they are well motivated. We believe that students of all abilities benefit from the coherent, holistic approach to learning that the IB DP offers.
We are proud of our diverse and caring community of learners and an environment nurturing a growth mindset. AISZ upper school is a place where we manage the balance between rigor and inclusion, aspiring to a become a place where students feel safe and empowered, motivated to engage in diverse learning experiences, supporting and inspiring themselves and others toward self-directedness.
