Middle School (6-8)
Welcoming independence and self-direction
A principal goal of the AISR Middle School is to provide students with a platform that accommodates a time of rapid intellectual and personal change in their lives. These years are marked with many significant transitions, including the shift from the self-contained learning environment as well as the potentially daunting transition into high school. AISR’s implementation of the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) provides an effective bridge from the International Primary Curriculum, and it prepares students for types of analysis and synthesis that are inherent in typical high school tasks. In addition, the IMYC program reinforces AISR’s Core Values, which provide consistency and reinforce student growth into global citizens.
AISR’s Middle School emphasizes intercultural awareness and communication, and it is committed to equipping students with the academic and personal tools that will lead to their continued successes. AISR Middle School students will:
- Have an appreciation for the value of teamwork and effective communication
- Receive small-group and individual instruction to accommodate the unique needs of every student
- Further develop personal motivation as well as essential academic, inter-personal and intra-personal skills
- Actively participate in IMYC Entry and Exit Point activities for the following thematic, inter-disciplinary units: Collaboration, Discovery, Risk, Balance, Structures, Relationships, Communication, Competition, Tradition, Respect, Identity, Interpretation, Community, Leadership and Challenge
