WELCOME TO AISM ELEMENTARY
Our Elementary School is a nurturing learning environment that caters to students from PreK through Grade 5. With a maximum class size of 15 students, we focus on providing personalized attention and fostering a strong sense of community.
Our youngest learners in PreK and Kindergarten have their very own playground designed for their enjoyment. The PreK program follows the Creative Curriculum model, a research-backed approach that nurtures the holistic development of each child. Our dedicated teachers are equipped with high-quality resources to ensure intentional and caring instruction during these critical formative years.
In Grades K-5, we adhere to the esteemed AERO Standards, which align with global curriculum trends and resonate particularly with the Common Core initiative in the U.S. These standards are widely utilized by the U.S. Office of Overseas Schools. Our dynamic PreK-5 school day encompasses daily instruction in core subjects such as English, Math, Science, and Social Studies, complemented by enriching classes in Art, French, Computer Science, and Physical Education. Technology integration is woven seamlessly across all subjects. Moreover, each classroom boasts an extensive library of children's literature and informational texts.
To further enhance learning experiences, our Elementary Division enjoys a dedicated outdoor space where students can engage in hands-on, experiential learning both inside and outside the classroom.
WELCOME TO AISM MIDDLE SCHOOL
Welcome to the Middle School division of the American International School of Monrovia. The middle school program is intended to enrich and further develop students as they make the transition from elementary school to high school. Middle school is a huge growth time for students physically, emotionally, and cognitively.
At AISM we look at academics as our primary responsibility although we realize that the social-emotional development and well-being of young adults is critical to how they see themselves and others. We purposefully organize students to work in small groups, critically analyze information and to form their own ideas, thoughts, and opinions.
Middle School at AISM consists of Grades 7- 8, students have eight different classes; English, Math & Science – meet every day for 1 hour. Social Studies, Art, PE, Theatre/Tech/Health rotate every other day. Students have a different teacher for each class. Middle School students can join the AISM- MUN. The Model UN is a popular activity for those interested in learning more about how the UN operates. Hundreds of thousands of students’ worldwide take part every year at all educational levels. Many of today’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts – including at the UN itself – participated in Model UN as a student.
