At AIS - West, the High School continues with the same careful supervision and attention to all areas of student development and learning as do the Elementary and Middle Schools. The curriculum and methodology at these grade levels are designed to meet the needs of students in their transitional phase of emerging adolescence.
The curriculum is designed to match the best practices of the Common Core from American school districts, as well as US National standards. Students are taught essential knowledge, skills and understandings, as well as important analytic and critical thinking. A departmentalized program provides students with an opportunity to learn in interdisciplinary units. Real life application of subject knowledge is accomplished through integrated core curriculum in combination with technology, art, drama, music and physical education. Student learning becomes an experiential on the Week Without Walls trips; which gives students a variety of opportunities to interact with others culturally, environmentally, or through service projects.
The rapid intellectual growth of the pre-adolescence sparks many emotional and social changes. AIS - West's High School nurtures trusting relationships with adults and peers to create a climate of personal growth for each student. We strive to enable all our students to become successful and confident individuals.
