The aim of the Learner Profile is to help students develop the personal qualities and attributes necessary to realize AISD’s vision, “Preparing students to become stewards for a just and sustainable world”. Teachers nurture and encourage the development of the attributes of the Learner Profile throughout the school and encourage parents to do the same at home.
