Parents who choose to enroll their children into AISB are expected to support the mission and beliefs of the school.
- AISB offers admission to all students whom we believe can benefit from our well-balanced and rigorous academic programs. We accept students who speak English as a second language but require that they take an assessment to ensure that they will be able to be successful at their grade level. In general, the higher the grade level, the higher the student’s level of English proficiency needs to be.
- AISB can admit students with mild learning difficulties; however we do not have the personnel to meet the needs of students with more severe learning disabilities.
- To be considered for admittance to AISB, the school needs to receive a fully completed application form with the required supporting documentation. The sooner this is received, the sooner we can inform you if your child has been accepted to the school.
- The Director determines admission to the school and/or class placement according to age, the evaluation of previous school records, and where possible, a personal interview.
- AISB may offer financial assistance (up to 75% of tuition fees only) to families who are not able to afford the fees themselves and whose fees are not paid for by an organization.
