A very warm welcome to Abroad International School. Abroad International School is an educational institution that prides itself on teaching its students in an immersive environment. We maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio allowing for authentic student-teacher relationships and a variety of extra-curricular activities.


The Early Learning Centre (ELC) is for children of ages one through five. We recognize all children are entitled to a best start in life and support to achieve their potential. A child’s experience has a vital impact on his/her future life chances, so we do our best to provide them with a safe, happy and secure learning environment.

At Primary School, we aim to make children confident and independent learners. We provide diverse opportunities for students to demonstrate what they have learned. Learning at AIS is inquiry-based, where students are encouraged to identify pertinent questions and construct well-informed answers.

The AIS Middle School Program aims to nurture internationally minded learners who show caring, respect, and compassion through their actions by providing a holistic education that allows students to develop their academic and social skills in an inquiry-based, collaborative environment.
