15 Reasons To Choose Aspiration International Secondary School
Value for Money
Whether you are new to international schools, or whether you are choosing a new school for your child, a change is always a big step. Furthermore, choosing an international school comes with a substantial price tag as well.
Down below we introduce 15 reasons why Aspiration International Secondary School has the best value for your money and why your child will thrive.
What is a school without its teachers? Our teachers are dedicated and well taken care of by the school. Therefore, the teacher’s turnover is very low, which benefit the consistency and quality of education
The selection of subjects is well thought out and several subjects are overlapping each other within the same theme. Thus, students learn about the same theme from different angles to get a firm understanding all the way up to the IGCSE examinations.
AISS offers the British Curriculum that ends in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. This is a world-wide recognized standard and this gives your child an advanced start in tertiary education, anywhere in the world.
AISS is a licensed school by the Ministry of Education, which means the school lives up to the highest standards in their quality of education. Furthermore, all of the teachers have their teacher’s license from the Ministry of Education as well.
AISS believes that the learner is responsible for their own learning. We encourage the learners to actively take part in the lessons and to take leadership in their own learning. The teachers does all s/he can to make learning possible.
Not everyone is equally good at all subjects. Therefore, we implemented a ‘buddy system’ in which peer-to-peer learning takes place at designated times. When problems still persists, the teachers are always there to assist in the child’s learning.
At AISS we have an open and inclusive culture where we try to take care of each other. We value how we represent the school in our uniforms, in our general behaviour and our behaviour online. The atmosphere is open and welcoming where problems can be talked about and solved.
This is the time to learn how to build, and maintain, good friendships for life! We encourage building friendships and guide the learners where needed.
AISS isn’t just a school where there is a big distance between the teachers and the learners. We are together throughout all the time. We learn from our mistakes and celebrate our successes. In that sense we are the AISS family!
At AISS we recognize that not everyone is the same. We all come from different backgrounds and face different challenges both academically and personally. We encourage individual attention to ensure that any difficulties can be overcome to let the learners get the maximum out of their education.
On Co-Curricular Activities
AISS believes that school is more that learning only the subjects. Therefore we have plenty co-curricular activities (CCAs) to choose from, which are an integral part of school’s life. CCAs enrich the learners with many bonding activities and to learn new skills such as Urban Farming or our Model United Nations club.
Money always is a sensitive topic. Earning money is exciting, however, how do you get the most out of your hard-earned money and that you can overcome financial obstacles? To answer these questions we are partnering with MoneyTree’s financial literacy program to teach the learners exactly that, in the most exciting way possible!
AISS is not an island in an ocean where life is nothing else but perfect. AISS is a part of the local community and we take pride in giving our resources to give a helping hand to the ones who need it. We actively take part in food distribution for the disadvantaged, we clean up parks, we contribute at schools who need an extra hand, and the list can go on.
When it comes to cleaning up, ‘The rubbish might not be mine, but this is my school/community/country, so let’s take good care of it’!
Who can’t agree with that?
What is a school without a healthy relationship with the parents? AISS invites all parents to be part of the family. There are several events, such as a parents-teachers coffee table. There, on a monthly basis, the school and parents sit together and talk about ongoing events and contributions.
That results in a put lock, organised by the parents, at the latest Sports Day, parents’ involvement in our community service and termly meetings with the teachers to discuss the progress of the children.
Performing Arts plays a significant part of AISS life as well. There are several performances throughout the year. One of them is the performance during the sports day, in which the houses organise their own performance. That can be a play, a dance or even both!
This can be considered as a ‘warming-up’ for the Year’s End performance at the graduation day where the whole school is involved in creating the biggest show ever!
Creating performances teaches the learners how to cooperate, work together as a unity, it bonds the learners together and they feel pride on their results!
