Australian International School, Singapore
ABOUT AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, SINGAPORE
The Australian International School is committed to excellence in education and offers a combination of robust Australian and International curriculum pathways to ensure our students reach their potential. AIS is the only international school in Singapore for students aged 2-18 years that operates a southern hemisphere school year.
Located in the heart of Singapore, AIS seeks to prepare and equip Australian leaders to play their part in making a difference for good in what is poised to be the most influential part of the world. AIS students are academically in the high-ability range and experience superior average growth compared to the best performing Australian state or territory – the ACT. This, combined with daily Mandarin lessons from Prep to Year 5, a 1:1 Apple iPad/MacBook programme from Prep to Year 12 and a dedicated professional learning centre to develop teachers of the highest calibre, ensures AIS students are in the best environment to exceed our expectations, and their own.
“As parents, we obviously want to set our children off with the best start in life and a quality education is a significant part of that. The Australian International School’s reputation precedes it and the reason we ultimately brought our children to AIS was that we knew they’d get a great quality of education.”
Andrew Knott, Parent
