The Australian International School Singapore (also known as AIS) is a globally focused institution and the only school in the southern hemisphere to offer a full Australian education programme in Singapore, for students from the age of 18 months to 18 years.
The learning process at AIS believes that there is no one single route to success. Hence, the AIS curriculum encompasses a wide range of subjects and programmes like global languages, digital learning, visual arts, drama, community service and music among others. While offering the Australian national curriculum for the children of Australian expatriates and others interested in studying the syllabus, the school also offers a full complement of international courses.
This begins with the Preschool level itself, with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) from Preschool to Year 5, the Australian curriculum from Year 6 to Year 8, the Cambridge IGCSEs in Years 9 and Years 10, and a choice of either the Higher Schools Certificate (HSC) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) for Year 11 and Year 12.
With more than 20 years of academic excellence and outstanding results, AIS still stands strong on its vision of being a globally recognised institution which inspires the students consistently excel and become contributing members of the society. The learning environment is guided by the core values of Respect, Opportunity and Achievement.
They aim to provide a holistic and well-balanced curriculum that considers sports, arts and academics to be equally important components of a child’s education. They also aim to teach moral commitment and values to students so that they can make the world a better place by being caring, reflective and responsible individuals.
At the Australian International School Singapore, students are encouraged to participate in a large number of extra-curricular activities ranging from swimming to language, sports, dance, music, and quite a few more. A number of multi-faceted enrichment activities and programs are included for the wholesome development of the child.
AIS offers the opportunity for all students to be trained and coached at the school along with participation in various competitive sports. Internationally renowned leaders and experts are invited for lectures and discussions at AIS to inspire the students and the community to learn and excel.
Students are even offered a number of courses in Spanish, French, Indonesian and Chinese to help them gain knowledge and understanding of the culture and language of the country they wish to study in, hence the given language electives.
AIS gives students the opportunity to choose elective music options from Year 8 to hone their skills and music and move towards an accomplished path in musicianship.
Like other Australian International Schools around Asia, the AIS Singapore aims to be renowned around the world as an academic institute that represents scholastic excellence and achievement in all all aspects of it’s operations, not just academia. The school philosophy is fully committed to the ideals of a holistic, well-balanced education- and that includes good representation in the arenas of sports and the arts as well.
Both the faculty and the administration have a moral commitment to making the world a more caring, reflective, knowledgeable, and principled place.
