AISA offers an American curriculum, tied to the demanding Common Core State Standards in English and math and the AERO (American Education Reaching Out) standards in other subjects. AISA is also an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) and the IB Diploma Program (DP). These IB programs are student-centered and inquiry-based. All students in KG1 to grade 5 are enrolled in the PYP. More details can be found on the elementary school pages. In grades 6 to 9, AISA’s curriculum follows best international practice, while being linked to US standards. In grade 10, students can choose to start working towards the IB Diploma, with and IB Prep year in grade 10 followed by the IBDP itself in grades 11 and 12. Those who choose not to do the IBDP can work towards a regular US High School Diploma.
