Learning at AISR
Since 1959, The American School of Rotterdam has been serving the international community by providing accredited, dynamic academic programmes to students from three to eighteen years of age.
Our students, parents and staff represent a genuinely diverse range of languages, nationalities and cultures and, while we operate predominantly in the English language, we regard this diversity as one of our most precious resources.
Led by teachers from many different nations, and with enviably small student-teacher ratios, our classrooms provide a safe environment for students to become fully engaged in learning and inquiry, growing both intellectually and emotionally. Through academic rigor based on world-class standards for learning and delivered in an atmosphere of individualized support and care, AISR enables all students to achieve their academic and personal potential.
We promote the aims of international education from the Internationally Primary Curriculum through to the International Baccalaureate. Such aims include:
- Ensuring that an attitude of mutual respect exists among all parts of our school community.
- Ensuring that exemplary achievement in learning is central to all that we do as a school.
- Ensuring that we promote the opportunities and obligations of global citizenship.
The IB Diploma is an internationally recognized, pre-university course of study that leads to external examinations. The two year programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment that equips students with the skills and attitudes necessary for success in higher education and employment.
