The curriculum framework @ AIS provides for the holistic development of the child, not just in the classroom but also through other areas of learning; surrounding social, emotional, physical and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare.

Take Responsibility For Actions :Value and develop self-confidence and responsibility.

Work Together :Develop co-operative and teamwork skills.

Enjoy Learning :Recognise the importance of fun and positive enjoyment in learning.

Give Views And Influence Decisions :Involve students in decision-making about their own learning and school life.

Integrated curriculum is an educational approach that prepares children for lifelong learning. With this strong belief, AIS is one among those schools who support curriculum integration and look at education as a process for developing abilities required by life in the twenty first century, rather than discrete, departmentalized subject matter.

At AIS, our mission is to provide opportunities through education for all children and experience this integrated curriculum which builds and develop them as learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged and equipped for success in the modern world. This is being acquired by integrating hands-on, investigative and exploring activities in classrooms.
