AISE WEST PHILOSOPHY
AISE West provides a co-educational, English language, college preparatory program of studies as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program that culminates in awarding eligible students an American High School Diploma or International Baccalaureate Diploma. A holistic education is provided that encourages high standards of academic achievement, meaningful collaboration, and personal development, while supporting the unique needs of each learner. We encourage the expression of multiple perspectives in a safe and nurturing learning environment, such that the cultural identity of each student is valued. We prepare students to contribute to and thrive in a multicultural society. We support students in the development of skills and learning strategies. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and well-being. Learning explicitly addresses guided and independent inquiry and investigations, skill development, and thinking strategies for finding solutions to the complex problems inherent in the challenges posed in developing a sustainable and peaceful world.
Today at the secondary morning announcements we recognized Tamour Hassen, an AIS West bus driver, who found and returned a huge amount ot money that was lying on the road near the school. He returned the money to our security and fortunately the person who the money belongs to came and claimed the money. We appreciate the honest and character of Mr. Hassen as he embodies all that is good at AIS West
