Inquiry-based learning in the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) allows students to harness a trans-disciplinary approach to connect subject areas both within and outside the classroom. By nurturing their natural curiosity the programme allows students to become independent learners, who develop holistically across developing cognitive, affective and physical domains.
The CIE programmes offered at this stage allow students to further develop skills and conceptual understanding across disciplines, even as they recognise and acquire attributes of empathy and perseverance together with problem skills, through experiential learning opportunities that ensure connections with the real world.
Offering two strong high school, university preparatory programmes allows students to select between the Cambridge AS/A levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Academic rigour and a challenging curriculum prepare students to successfully navigate university requirements and the careers that follow.

Schools are transformational and at AAIS, students are encouraged to become who they wish to become. School is the place where students explore possibilities to find out who they’d like to become in the future. We provide students the opportunities and space to explore; to prepare for an as yet unclear and ultimately challenging future, characterised by a rapid pace of change, by learning how to learn. The AAIS curriculum, learning values and accessibility are the pillars that uphold this preparation. A broad curriculum includes the requirements of international programmes and goes beyond them. The focus on values ensures holistic development. Accessibility allows for all stakeholders to be a part of the growth and learning of each child according to his/her potential. A holistic education and internationalism characterise the school. Such education involves the cognitive, physical and emotional development of the child. Understanding diversity, connecting global issues, acknowledging ethical dimensions, strengthening communication, building community through service and preparing leaders for a challenging future, are standards that underpin the perspective of an international school student. This education reaches the AAIS student through a pedagogy that includes a range of approaches to teaching and learning, through collaboration at all levels and through the effective integration of technology in pedagogy.
