Middle years schooling is a time of great growth and students require understanding, care and support to navigate what can be a turbulent time in their life. Our staff, in partnership with parents, create a stable and nurturing environment where our students feel free to explore, question and analyse the world in which they live; and where they are encouraged to reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.
At AISB, we believe that every child is unique; creative, competent and rich in potential. Our innovative and dynamic learning experiences cater for individual differences and promote a love of learning in every child.
We are committed to guiding and supporting students through challenging academic programs that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills they require to play a full and active role as global citizens.
Our central aim is to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st Century by developing self-discipline and respect for themselves and others. Our Positive Education program provides a rich opportunity for our students to cultivate the life-long skills that will assist them to flourish from a social-emotional, cognitive and academic perspective. We provide guidance to enable the child to develop routines, build strong relationships and reflect on their learning, behaviour and actions.
Our middle school students strive for academic excellence and follow a carefully prepared academic pathway.
In Years 7 and 8 we use the Australian National Curriculum as a framework for learning. Students explore a variety of core subjects, follow their interests through a number of electives and build on skills skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving that have been introduced in the Primary School years..
In Year 9, the students embark on the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Cambridge IGCSE is a two year course of study, culminating with external examinations in Year 10.
The IGCSE is an international passport to progression and success. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE provides the perfect springboard to senior school studies such as the Cambridge International A levels, the International Baccalaureate diploma and other high school certificates from around the world.
