Educational Support Services
The Special Education Department at AIS exists to meet the diverse needs reflected in the student population by providing specialized instruction and advisory services to eligible students. AIS strives to provide the highest quality education, irrespective of disability, meeting students at their point of need and teaching them in their least restrictive environment.
Academic Support is designed for students who do not have an identified learning disability but need some extra support in the classroom. These services could include working with an aide, a quiet classroom to work in, or working on study or organizational skills.
Individual Support Plan
With our Individual Support Plan (ISP) for Education, we champion the diverse and unique learning journeys of each student. Our ISP is a comprehensive, student-centered framework meticulously crafted to foster academic growth, personal development, and ultimate success.
At AIS, we believe in the potential of every student and are dedicated to ensuring they receive the support and guidance necessary to flourish. The ISP is not just a document; it's a commitment to personalized education and a promise of empowerment.
We provide students with;
- Personalized Educational Roadmaps: Our ISP is designed to cater to the individual needs and aspirations of every student. It serves as a tailored guide, outlining specific, achievable goals that pave the way for academic excellence and personal growth.
- Tailored Strategies for Success: Within the ISP, you'll find a wealth of personalized strategies and resources crafted to meet the unique challenges and opportunities of each student. These strategies encompass a broad spectrum of educational support, from specialized tutoring to innovative teaching methodologies.
- Holistic Development: We understand that education extends beyond the classroom. Our ISP takes a holistic approach, addressing not only academic goals but also personal and social development. We aim to empower well-rounded individuals primed for success in all aspects of life.
- Collaborative Efforts: The ISP is a collaborative endeavor that involves students, parents, educators, and support staff. It's a testament to our commitment to fostering teamwork and shared responsibility in shaping each student's educational journey.
- Progress Tracking: Our ISP is not a static document; it evolves as students progress. We monitor and adjust the plan to ensure it remains aligned with changing needs and aspirations.
Join us in embarking on a journey where individuality is celebrated, potential is unleashed, and success is defined by each student's unique path.
English Language Learning
The English Language Learners (ELLs) Program assists students in their core curriculum studies and helps them improve their English language skills. Students who are selected for the program are usually below grade-level in their English proficiency and need the extra one-on-one attention to ensure that they are successful academically at AIS.
Depending on the level of English proficiency of our dual language students, they will attend ELL support classes three to four times per week. Sometimes these sessions will be with other students who are at a similar level of language ability in a small group format.
We strive to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment for English language learners. We encourage peer collaboration, pair students with language buddies, and promote cultural exchange activities to foster a sense of belonging and create opportunities for language practice and mutual learning. We integrate technology into our English language learning programs to enhance student engagement and proficiency.
