High School

A great high school experience can put your child on a trajectory of lifelong success. At AISK, it is our goal to prepare students for the many possibilities before them. We believe high school is a chance for students to hone their skills, identify their passions, and learn who they are in relation to the world — all while preparing academically for a seamless transition into higher education. We recognize the range of gifts, abilities, and interests of our students, and have provided multiple pathways for successful university placement in senior year.

As students prepare for bright futures, they enjoy a broad range of experiences that allow them to utilize their creativity, discover new horizons, and build lifelong relationships.  These experiences not only help shape their choices, but make lasting memories. When graduates return to AISK as alumni, they are not short on stories of how their time here influenced who they have become.

High School Program Highlights

Firm Academic Foundations

Our curriculum emphasizes the ever-important areas of math, language arts, science, and social studies, providing firm foundations across these core subjects. Every class is taught from a real-world perspective, making content relevant and meaningful to students.

 

Life-Changing Opportunities

From serving the local community to traveling abroad, learning is not limited to the classroom. High school students enjoy a wide variety of activities that broaden their horizons, instill leadership skills, and enrich the educational experience.

Proactive Future Planning

Our college prep program is thorough and takes into account the unique path each student will pursue. Starting in ninth grade, students are guided through a process that allows them to tailor their education to future goals. 

Close Knit Community

The community at AISK is a safe place, physically and socially. Students build relationships that will last a lifetime while learning the value of camaraderie, collaboration, and mutual respect. With small class sizes, teachers play active roles in the lives of our students.

Academics


The academic program at AISK is designed to prepare students for tertiary education in the United States and around the world. Our high school curriculum is rigorous, but students are supported by caring faculty who provide one-on-one mentoring and guidance from ninth through twelfth grade.
 
Tailored education paths allow students to begin pursuing their higher education goals early-on. Some students who complete our IB degree program enter college as a sophomore, maximizing their time and money.
 
We recognize the range of gifts, abilities and interests of our students and offer a dynamic learning paradigm. Our goals for each student are the development of:
 
●      Ways of thinking (critical thinking, making connections, and creativity)
●      Ways of working (collaboration and communication)
●      Skills for living (global awareness and adaptability)
●      Tools for working (information literacy/information communication and technology tools)
 
A 1:1 digital device program ensures every student has access to media options which maximize their learning. Data analysis, data representation, information presentation, reports, research, writing essays, and presenting projects in digital formats are the daily activities of our high school students and their expressions of knowledge.
