The AIS Support Program offers students and families assistance to ensure that each child achieves his or her full potential. AIS students are understood as individuals, and they are taught the skills to manage their school years and beyond. AIS students are given a voice, and they have opportunities to self-advocate. At AIS, personal attention goes hand-in-hand with high expectations.
At the core of the Program is our Life Skills curriculum. Our guidance counselors and teachers provide age-appropriate lessons and practice opportunities in numerous areas that will support students to be successful in life.
The Support Program also helps students and families deal with individual issues. We know that students learn best when they are comfortable and able to express themselves.The team offers a safe haven where students can work through problems. While the school emphasizes that students must take responsibility for their own problems, our professionals coach them through their issues so they can see the light at the end of a challenge.
Finally, the support team also works with students who need help in their academics. Some children thrive in smaller groups where they can avoid distractions. Others may need reinforcement in basic skills that are better done one-on-one. At the other end of the spectrum, some students need to be pushed beyond the grade-level curriculum, and the support team supports our gifted learners as well. Through these many services, we have one overarching goal: all AIS students will be equipped to do their best in order to be their best!
