ASAMIAH International School (AIS) aims to develop inquiring, self-confident, independent, productive, respectful and caring lifelong learners.

Asamiah International School (AIS) is a co-educational, bilingual, and an IB continuum school. AIS encompasses various formal educational stages, commencing at kindergarten and transcending into the IB PYP, MYP and DP of education. In spite of this variability, AIS is committed to ensuring it creates a safe, thriving, open and loving milieu for each of the educational phases.

The students lie at the heart of the school's mission. The school recognizes and accentuates the importance of instilling certain principles and values in its students, all the while developing inherent qualities such as inquiry, thought, and imagination. This is interwoven into their learning experiences at school and further enhanced through their participation in community service and social development.

AIS aims to provide every learner with the finest education possible. The school continuously works on developing rich, holistic and rigorous conceptual-based curricula that is delivered through vibrant and engaging teaching approaches deeply stemmed from the IB pedagogy and practices. Teaching approaches are tailored to meet the students' preferences and diversity, and are aimed at developing and challenging students' skills and abilities so they may become independent and confident learners. Furthermore, the programme is conducted in compliance with the demands of the 21st century, and as such is constantly progressing to integrate new knowledge, approaches, facilities and areas of study. The recent integration of artificial intelligence as an additional field of study, is perhaps an evident example of such advances.

The after-school activities are designed to complement the school's programs and provide students with an opportunity to acquire life skills. Participating in extracurricular activities like Model United Nations (MUN) or STEAM projects have profound effects on learners as they contribute to their personal growth and character development, enhancing teamwork, leadership, and time management skills. Furthermore, engaging in the IB projects (PYP Exhibition, End of Unit Performances, Student-Led Conferences, MYP Projects, CAS Projects) serve as powerful tools for students to demonstrate their understanding, application, and integration of knowledge and skills across various subject areas.

At AIS, we prepare children for the real world. A means to such preparation is linking the learning to the real world. This may help students understand the context of their studies for them to better fathom the sphere in which they inhabit.

Moreover, the school is promoting students to become international-minded citizens who embrace differences and are more tolerant towards the spectrums of people. A means to achieve this is encouraging students to become proficient at multiple languages. Therefore, the school offers language courses in Arabic, English and German. Multilingualism allows our students to embrace cultural diversity and hence promotes their open-mindedness. Thus, our students tread the path toward becoming global citizens.

As such, AIS students tend to exhibit outstanding characteristics and remarkable results. Upon embarking on a new phase of life, they continue to withhold such standards at heart. The school is pleased with the AIS alumni, who have been able to make many personal and academic realizations, and the school continues to strive in delivering excellence to help benchmark a better society; a better world.
