Middle school students working together to deepen their understandings
Cramming for tests and learning without knowing the whys DO NOT happen at ABIS. Students develop sophisticated and subtle pictures of our world through posing their own questions, researching and making informed judgments.
Middle school students at ABIS are expected to take responsibility for their own learning. Our students are actively engaged and challenged to look at local issues with global significance. Our goal is to make school a place where they love to come because they are challenged, cared for and respected.
Encouraging children to learn collaboratively and imaginatively
Challenging & rigorous
Students at the ABIS middle school are expected to be role models for our younger children. We want them to step up and take responsibility for themselves & and their learning.
Broad & inclusive
Our MYP students have lots of opportunities to grow in a wide range of ways. We work to help them explore who they want to become.
Outdoor Play Areas
Our teachers are recruited globally. We put enormous effort into finding and keeping the very best teachers that we can. In the end, buildings and grounds mean nothing if the teachers who work in them are not up to scratch.
At ABIS we don’t work our way through text books. Instead, we challenge our children to construct their own understandings by using the wide range of research and analysis skills that we teach them.
