At AISA, we believe that learning the importance of offering service to the community is an essential component of a holistic education. Community service is a mandatory component of the IB Diploma Program, as part of the CAS activities. In the IB PYP program, units of inquiry are expected to lead to an action component which can often involve service. In addition to these formal curriculum requirements for service, AISA students are involved in a plethora of activities, including re-cycling (we are a re-cycling center for Abu Dhabi), raising money and collecting suppplies for those affected by the floods in Pakistan, supporting local animal welfare groups.

support education for students in Cambodia. Most recenetly, AISA has
donated enough money to the Go Organization to build a school for students in
SomRong Cambodia. See the PDF
