Through this connection to the local community, grade levels are also linking another important component of their curriculum, Service Learning. Service Learning projects form an essential component of AISD’s curriculum by helping to develop international citizens who are able to contribute to issues related to local and global communities through intercultural awareness and understanding. It is our belief that we share a responsibility for helping to make the world a better place for everyone to live in.
Service Learning in the Elementary school program:

- Allows a student to develop an awareness of local and global issues and to foster a sense of caring for others.
- Is an integral part of the curriculum – usually a unit of inquiry.
- Provides structured time for students to reflect.
