At AIS we are fully committed to delivering an international education, with an Australian ethos. Our curriculum choices combine challenging and enriching experiences with academic rigour and creative opportunities. From Preschool to Year 12, AIS students experience a variety of learning options which develop their talents and challenge their minds.
Our Elementary School, for students in Preschool to Year 5, is authorised to offer the IB Primary Years Programme . We also reference the Australian Curriculum (AC) in Elementary, drawing on the resources of internationally acclaimed learning programs and philosophies to support the rigour of our curriculum. The Secondary School offers challenging academic programs that focus on holistic education by connecting academic subjects with contextual relevance. For students in Years 6 to 8, AIS benchmarks its curriculum against the AC within a school-specific framework. This leads on to the IGCSE in Years 9 and 10, and a choice of either the IBDP or the NSW HSC in Years 11 and 12.
AIS is made up of an enthusiastic and motivated student body who, with over 50 nationalities between them, truly embody what it means to be an international student. Whether it’s Sports, the Arts or Community Service, our students are always ready to stand up and take part.
What AIS looks for in its staff is a passion for lifelong learning and the desire to share that passion with students, colleagues and the community. AIS currently has over 2,600 students, 220+ teaching staff, 68 teaching assistants and 61 admin / support staff. Our teaching staff come to us from a range of countries including Australia, USA, Canada, Singapore, South Africa and the UK and boast between them a wide range of skills and experiences, both in the classroom and beyond.
