Learning at AISD
The American International School Dhaka provides academic programs based on American educational principles for an international community. AISD recognizes curriculum development as an evolutionary process, which is updated as new discoveries are made in educational research about teaching and student learning. AISD has a standards-based curriculum framework with a “backwards design”; approach to unit design and lesson planning. AISD is accredited by the Council for International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The Elementary School implements the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), which draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems and a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.
The Middle School aims to provide an age-appropriate, child-centered educational program in a safe and supportive environment. The six major elements of the middle school program are the core curriculum, the quarterly exploratory program, electives, the grade level advisory team, student support services, and the extra-curricular program.
In the High School, students are challenged to complete a rigorous series of courses to meet AISD’s graduation requirements. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) is available to qualified juniors and seniors. All Grade 11 and 12 students benefit from the IB Standard Level offerings.
