Welcome to the AIS!
Whether you’ve been in this area for generations, your family is new to Antigua, or you are considering a visit to the “Land of Eternal Springtime”, it is a joy to welcome you to the AIS Secondary School family. The Secondary School at AIS is a truly special place: a warm, student-centered community, guided by three core values. Think Critically, Act Ethically, Serve Others.
Seeing students grow into their full potential and share their gifts is what I love most about being the Secondary school principal. When visiting the AIS campus, you won’t get too far before noticing the many ways in which students express themselves and their learning in creative ways. You will experience art-adorned walls, hallways lined with original pieces of poetry, and instrumental music coming from all corners. You might overhear a thoughtful debate, pass by a passionate presentation, or spot groups of students gathering under a tree to dig into a good book. You’ll see students displaying leadership in special events and school activities as well as planning local and global service projects or doing something to help around campus.
Our Secondary teachers care deeply about students and are committed to their own professional development. By collaborating across content areas, they facilitatie deep connections and authentic application of learning. They greet students as they enter their classrooms, tutor after school, and hit the soccer field or yoga mats to lead extracurricular activities. Ask any student what is special about AIS, and you are likely to hear about their favorite teachers.
It’s truly an honor to be part of this community. I invite you to come and experience it firsthand!

As elected representatives of the student body, the Student Council is formed to serve the students of AIS. To accomplish this, STUCO keeps students informed of relevant issues, promotes positive citizenship among the student body, offers opportunities for growth through community service and engagement, and acts as a liaison between the student body and the administration.
By participating in STUCO, representatives gain organizational, management, decision-making and leadership skills, engage in democratic practices, and practice tolerance and respect for the opinions of others.
The AIS Student Council has a two-part vision. First, STUCO aims to create and improve the communication between students and the administration. Second, STUCO designs activities to bring our community together and to raise funds, thereby allowing us to address student needs and promote positive change!
