CURRICULUM INFORMATION SECONDARY SCHOOL

EXTRA-CURRICULAR CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES It is important to note that we encourage AICS students to participate in community sports and activities as much as possible. It is for this reason that our extracurricular selection is limited to activities not necessarily to be found in the local community offerings. AICS offerings include (MUN) Model United Nations, Science & Business Clubs, and involvement in the production of the School Yearbook, Student Council and Student Peer Coaching. Participation in these activities may incur additional costs. Choose-your-Language (Taal naar Keuze) program offers secondary school students an opportunity to study extra languages, in addition to the regular language lessons taking place in schools. Esprit Schools, in cooperation with the municipality of Amsterdam, wants to give students the opportunity to be more involved with foreign or native languages. The following languages are being offered: Arabic, Chinese, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Each week, students receive two-hours of in-class language instruction. Students may be at beginner to native level fluency.
