Asamiah International School (AIS) is an IB; co-educational, bilingual school offering children from KG to Grade 12 IB PYP Curriculum (KG and grades 1-5) as well as the DP for grades 11 and 12. The school is easily accessible to parents and visitors with state-of-the-art facilities. We emulate comfortably and proudly alongside the best IB schools in the country; this is reflected on our students’ outstanding characteristics and remarkable results. We are also proud of our alumni who receive prompt acceptance at the best universities worldwide.
AIS aims to develop inquiring, self-confident, independent, productive, respectful and caring lifelong learners who seek to make their societies a better place and who are willing to transfer their knowledge to community service and social development.
At AIS, we aim to provide every learner with the finest education possible through vibrant and engaging teaching approaches that are deeply stemmed from the IB pedagogy and practices. Our learners are thus enabled and challenged to become independent learners who acquire their personal knowledge through the five approaches to learning (ATL skills): Communication, social, thinking, self-management and research skills. Hence, our school is equipped with various facilities that help students enjoy and learn the necessary skills.
The after-school activities are designed to complement the school programs and provide students with an opportunity to acquire extra-curricular skills. They include a wide variety of choices such as athletics, basketball, football, mixed martial arts, photography, robotics, gaming, design, drama and dance classes, arts, individual & group music instrument lessons, languages in addition to our yearly enriching summer camps.
At AIS, we prepare children for the real world. We make our learners ready to meet the future with confidence and to contribute positively to their local and global society. Our educators work hard to ensure that the best possible quality of education is at the service of our dear learners.
To complete our journey, AIS is an MYP candidate School seeking authorization. Preparing for MYP has enriched our conceptual-based curricula and our teaching and learning approaches, making the learning process globally - oriented and linked to real life. We teach in compliance with the 21st century demands, and what is more essential is that we instill cultural diversity and international-mindedness in our students’ mindset in order for them to learn how to embrace differences.
To put a closure to the IB journey, our DP students are encouraged to leave a tangible impact in their community by serving and taking actions to create novel solutions to apparent local conflicts through their DP/CAS projects which are set to align with the UN 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to benchmark a better society; a better world.
