Service Learning is a big part of what makes AIS special. Every grade level takes on their own project each year. The key is that it is student-led. We ask that the class researches what needs the community has that they can meet, and then they divide up the tasks among themselves. They then carry out the service activity throughout the year, and make a report in June. How they define "community" is up to them, with the older students having a wider scope. Some examples of projects are:
- medical translation for visiting doctors serving local communities
- starting a recycling program
- volunteering at local schools, providing nutrition and hygiene support, along with English lessons
- working at a local animal shelter
