Next week, for our last week of school, let's show our school spirit! Uniforms are not required, and students may wear our school colors however they wish, as long as it is appropriate. So, color that hair at home, sport those temporary tattoos, and let's see some blue, white, and green! Go AIS Owls!

HOS eCommuniqué: A Farewell to Colleagues. A Farewell to Friends.

The start of each new school year brings new people into our lives--people we will remember for a lifetime. The end of each school year means that some of our friends will be moving on to new adventures, near and far. In this week's Head of School eCommuniqué, Jacques shares his thanks to several colleagues who will be moving on to new adventures after their many years of service at AIS. Merci, gracias, and thank you to you all for your invaluable contributions to the AIS Community. We look forward to crossing paths again!


20th Anniversary Student Bricks

Don't forget, we are honoring our current and alumni students with bricks for our front courtyard in celebration of our 20th Anniversary. Help us pay homage to all who have made this school possible by purchasing a brick with your student's name and dedication.

Each brick (per student) is $150 and will help fund the 20th Anniversary Master Plan campus beautification at our school. The first bricks will be installed in the summer of 2021!
