Welcome to the AISE Middle School! The Middle School family extends a warm welcome to our dear students, teachers, parents, and staff members. In the Middle School, we are dedicated to our school’s mission of providing a challenging American and international education that fosters informed local, regional and global citizens. Our teachers and staff members focus on skills that will ensure our students are lifelong learners who contribute positively in an increasingly diverse and changing world. This academic year 2018-2019, we will continue to focus on the role of technology in our lives. We are educating our students to use their devices to learn in and outside the classroom setting, while at the same time seeking a balance between being tech-savvy and maintaining healthy human interactions with their peers and the adults in their lives. To that end, the middle school continues to reserve a ‘device-free day’ every Tuesday. The Middle school family strives to ensure our students are 21st century ready, by providing a safe environment and ample opportunities that allow our children to discover their passions and follow their dreams. We provide our students with opportunities for collaborative and problem solving through blended learning classes, field trips as well as a rich after school program. We rely on current education research to continue to learn about how to best help our students grow into emotionally, socially, and academically intelligent young adults. We are looking forward to a wonderful year, full of learning, friendships and enriching experiences for our amazing students!
