    Welcome to the AIS Senior School.

    Whether you are an existing member of AIS or considering joining the AIS community I hope that you find your exploration of the AIS website rewarding. Since 2010 the Senior School has been providing students with two very well regarded course options, the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) or the Australian based Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). These programmes allow Senior School students to build on the Enquiry Based Learning pedagogy of the Junior and Middle Schools.  On the completion of their Senior School Studies, both of these programmes will provide AIS graduates with internationally and locally recognized credentials.

    Importantly for students the AIS Senior School is relatively small with a population of approximately 170 students.  The small population provides an environment with smaller class sizes where relationships that are respectful and caring can more easily develop between students and teachers.  When working with their students the Senior School teaching team has expectations of consistency, high standards and academic rigor.

    Since 2012 the five cohorts of AIS graduates have demonstrated steadily improving academic results with 100% of the QCE students achieving their Certificates and 87% of IB students achieving their Diplomas.  These great results are achieved when motivated students work with supportive and highly qualified teachers.
