Discover why IB students succeed

The International Baccalaureate (IB) equips students 3-19 years of age with transferable, future-ready skills and internationally recognized qualifications. Each programme is designed to match the educational needs of students today and tomorrow, and to nurture the skills and attitudes they need to excel at their careers of choice and lead meaningful lives.

University admission

The International Baccalaureate (IB) provides a world-class preparation for university and life beyond. IB students consistently demonstrate the critical thinking and research skills needed to excel in their university studies—and they tend to get into the world’s best universities.

Language Policy
AIS’ mission is the foundation of our school’s language policy and in accordance with the International Baccalaureate Organization’s policies, recognizes that language is central to learning. The school’s language policy sees all teachers as being responsible for the language development of their students and is therefore responsible for facilitating communication through the planning and delivery of their courses. It has been developed around the needs of our specific school community, programmes, and local context, with our students at the center. Thus, our language policy document is constantly evolving. The purpose of this document is to serve as a guideline connected to key resources that we use in our language programmes at AIS. Read more
