Welcome To Our Elementary School

We’re delighted to have this opportunity to introduce life in the Elementary School here at AIS.

The Elementary years are an exciting stage of your child’s education, as this is when they begin discovering individual strengths, passions, and interests. Our aim is to encourage your child to pursue these passions – whether these lie in the arts, sports, culture or academics – and embark on a journey toward personal excellence.

Our team of experienced educators help to fulfill your child’s ambitions by sharing best practice to deliver the highest quality inquiry-based curriculum that focuses on the child as the learner.

By engaging students’ natural curiosity and challenging them in meaningful ways, we help your child to develop key competencies and skills across critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and leadership, providing a gateway to success in Secondary School and beyond.

All of this is delivered just a stone’s throw from Singapore’s city centre, in a stimulating, nurturing environment that allows your child to flourish across all endeavors.

We are proud of all the achievements of our Elementary students at AIS and would welcome the opportunity to meet your child.
