High School Athletics
At AISD we believe strongly in the value that the interscholastic athletic competition program brings to the school and the student community. The AISD HS Athletics program is offered as an educational activity first and foremost - an extension of the classroom experience that provides unique opportunities to teach life lessons. Within the program lessons related to leadership, goal setting, teamwork, decision making, perseverance, integrity, sacrifice, competing with character and overcoming adversity are developed.
The positive educational outcomes of interscholastic athletics at AISD do not happen by chance. They happen because teachers, coaches and school administration adopt an intentional and purposeful approach to the interscholastic athletic experience.
Wins are achieved through AISD athletics by developing successful athletes and teams, but more importantly, wins are achieved through the educational experience by developing successful and responsible students, leaders and community members. At AISD we adhere to the philosophy of the Positive Coaching Alliance and the Double Goal Coaching program - "While being competitive and winning is an objective, it is more important that coaches teach life lessons through sports experiences.
Coaches will model and teach players respect through "Honoring the Game" while players focus on mastering their sport and behaviors which leads to higher effort, learning and improved athletic and life performance.
