WELCOME TO THE AICS! We are a school for students who are able and prepared to value and handle differences and diversity. Our education aims to school for compassionate and wise human beings through knowledge and inquiry. This school guide gives you a good idea about what it means to be educated at the AICS. This school year we will further professionalise our organisation, culminating in a whole school Five Year Evaluation visit of all our services. Our 2019 Activity Plan will ensure that we live up to the high expectations of our accredited member status of the Council of International Schools (CIS). We continue to grow to a triple location school at the beginning of the school year 2018-2019. In order to keep on learning as well as growing, we need to keep the balance: between growth and stability, between consolidation and innovation and between inclusion and attainment.
In line with the Education Manifesto of the Esprit Schools, we strive – in every decision we make – to ask ourselves what it means for the learning of our students. We aim to legitimise our decisions in such a way, that our learning focus guides dialogue, with each other at school, and with our stakeholders. We want to be held to account regarding our goals and aspirations as a learning organisation, and how we seek to make those aspirations a reality. Looking forward to meeting you at the AICS!
