Upper School Curriculum

The goal of learning and teaching at AISZ is to develop self-directed individuals in an interdependent world. At AISZ, we strive to balance the polarities of rigor and inclusion, to fulfill our mission.

Student Learning

AISZ strives to deliver a coherent, articulated PK-12 curriculum driven by inquiry and sustained by critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. Problem-solving in unfamiliar and authentic situations, and interdisciplinary transfer of concepts and skills are priorities as teachers design units of inquiry.

Assessment at AISZ is based on success criteria, which align with the International Baccalaureate subject criteria and are used by students, teachers and parents to decide next steps in each student’s learning. Reflection, self-assessment and peer feedback are essential parts of assessment at AISZ.

Professional Learning

Adult learning at AISZ is an integral part of curriculum development. AISZ recognizes that teacher learning has the capacity to impact student learning. Teachers collaborate to develop craftsmanship and flexibility in instruction and assessment.

At AISZ, professional development is mission-driven and addresses strategic priorities for the school’s growth and improvement. Most importantly, teachers learn and create the environments and experiences in which students are able to develop growth mindsets. Parents are considered partners in learning, and regular professional learning sessions are provided for parents.
