(AIS) has a long and proud tradition of excellence in academics, the arts, extracurricular activities and learning how to live in a multi-cultural world. From the very first day of school all students should use each minute to learn from the teachers, make new friends, develop new skills, participate in all the activities, and use the resources available at AIS and in the local communities.
