On behalf of our entire community, I welcome you to AISK. As someone who has worked in Education worldwide, I can say this: AISK is a great school with a fabulous future.
I see AISK as one of the most determined schools in the Caribbean. We are home to Jamaica’s first 1 to 1 Laptop program, and the only high-performing school in Kingston to open a residence hall (for both international and Jamaican students). We hire only the most accomplished local and international teachers (about 50% for each) to teach a curriculum guided by American and international standards.
Our Elementary Program is also on the move, with LCD projectors, computer labs, and other technologies readily available to enliven instruction. Our curriculum is academic, but embraces full-person development supported by differentiated instruction. Also, our full-day Preschool program, Elementary School Government, and K-Kids (A Kiwanis Club Affiliation) offer students more opportunities than ever in the early grades.
This fall, the AISK Board of Directors published a very ambitious strategic plan that will guide our school for the next four (4) years. To this end, AISK’s curriculum delivery will grow more dynamic and multicultural, the arts and interscholastic sports will expand, and our IB Diploma Programme will continue to prosper. We also expect continued growth on campus annually, as seen with a record enrollment this school year.
AISK is not just a school – we are a Center for Excellence. With the newest purpose-built fully-air conditioned campus on the Island, we are committed to 21st Century Learning, and our values of Academic Excellence, Integrity, Respect, and Empowerment drive everything we do.
As someone who has experienced the best schools globally, I am proud to serve as the Head of School, and I am proud to have my son enrolled at AISK.
Brian Horvath, Ed.D.
Head of School
