A New School Year is Off to a Great Start!
Excitement was in the air as AIS students with the smiles on their faces and flowers in hands reunited with their friends and teachers at the start of the new school year. Everybody was particularly happy to see many new students commencing their educational journey with AIS.
The sixth school year has been kicked off and we have a lot to celebrate: the 5th year anniversary of AIS, launching of our own CNC (Computer Numerical Control) lab and Design Thinking Studio as we are going further with the school strategy aimed at nurturing world class engineers, opening of Grade 7 and the reinforcement of AIS faculty as many excellent new teachers have joined our team!
Back-to-school celebrations opened by the welcoming speech of Mr. Zamanov, the Head of School, brought together all AIS family at the football field. It was a festival for all students, centering on their feelings and experiences. The students greeted each other and the teachers, having their pictures taken with the self-made foreground – lettering cut out on our newly bought laser cutting machine.
AIS is ready for another great year!
Wishing all our students, staff and families an amazing school year as they continue Learning to Change the World for the better!

IB Student Conferences: Opportunities for Empowerment

Student conferences within IB PYP programme were held at AIS to reflect the students’ progress in academic disciplines and core competencies under the new school strategy on April 10-11.

Students of KG1 - Grade 2 and their parents participated in the Three-Way Conferences that involved three parties: students, parents and teachers. The conference participants discussed students’ progress and achievements emphasizing on the strengths and areas for improvement as well as setting future goals for the next academic year and the ways to assist in their attainment. AIS students shared their thoughts and ideas on inquiries conducted, assessed their role in inquiry activities, demonstrated the works, selected by them well in advance with the teacher’s support, and their portfolios.

The format of Student Led Conferences for Grade 3 - Grade 6 allowed the students to arrange and run conferences on their own. The student portfolio was the main focus of the conferences as it compiles many great examples from different units of inquiry. It gives the students the chance to take full ownership of their work while making their parents proud of all that they have done throughout the year.

The days of student conferences turned to be special for the entire school community and gave our students the unique opportunities for empowerment and engagement. We would like to express gratitude to all AIS families for taking the time to recognize the full worth of a strong IB education!
