AIS Plans to Build New Campuses
As of today AIS is running the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged from 3 to 11 years. The school is growing fast and currently is going through MYP authorization process to ensure transition of the AIS students to secondary school. In order to provide continuous education that conforms to international standards based on IB programme for the students facing the next level and in view of the new school strategy AIS developed a project of the Target Industrial and Educational Center. The idea was given another brush and improved as our AIS team was visiting different international schools. Within the project that already has an “approved” status AIS plans to finish construction of two campuses: a secondary school campus and Robotics, Chemistry and Biotechnology Laboratory in 2020.

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!
