The Algarve's New Home of Education
The team of Directors together possess more than fifty years of teaching experience. Experience that emanates from a varied cross section of the academic, creative and pastoral aspects of education. As a bespoke community school AIS are simply offering an alternative experience to the big corporate schools. An outstanding alternative.
AIS classes only have a maximum of twelve children per year group. This in itself points to a massive advantage concerning the attention given to each student, the rate of learning, the comprehensive coverage of the yearly curriculum and most importantly the time given by our teachers to understand each student.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to the education of children.
At AIS the teachers want to get tot know each student, to recognise and be fully aware of their strengths and weaknesses in and outside of the classroom. Our responsibility is to educate, inspire and encourage each individual pupil to reach their potential.
AIS is a school with heart, integrity and transparency that aims to instill a love of learning. Our team go above and beyond, creating effective and captivating lessons, teaching with positive energy in order for the students the knowledge and understanding required.
The school prides itself in adopting the philosophy of the whole child approach as well as continuously reminding students of the rewards of a positive growth mindset. Respect, self belief, confidence and happiness are all high on the agenda. These are ingredients that all staff will endeavour to build in each pupil and in the school as a whole.
An innovative International School, AIS is leading the way to make education, here in the Algarve, inspiring and to teach with a difference.
Founded in December 2019, the young school is making waves in a calm sea and hope that your children will ride high to achieve, on the crest of these waves.
