AISPP strives to understand the nature of every child and provide student-centered, growth mindset learning. Each day spent at school provides precious time to learn and to be challenged. We are committed to moving beyond the traditional approach of teaching all children the same way. Addressing individual learning needs and ensuring individual learning styles are a part of all of our programmes providing a stimulating, targeted, personalised approach.

AISPP believes that the quality of our teachers is paramount. We have recruited them as outstanding, internationally qualified teachers to offer the best teaching possible.

Our teachers are enthusiastic learners and inquirers who develop, nurture and grow inquiry within their students. We know they are passionate about providing engaging and motivational learning activities and rich assessment tasks.

AISPP believes that contemporary education recognises the importance of social values and responsibilities. Emotional intelligence, values, social and emotional programmes, involvement in action and service programmes, and developing international-mindedness feature in all of our programmes. This is further enhanced by our implementation of Positive Education, a supportive and healthy way in which we bring our students and our staff into our environment, focusing on well-being for all in our community.

AISPP prides itself on offering a beautiful setting, creative contemporary learning spaces and a learning environment that focuses on local and global aspects of our shared planet and common humanity.
