Walk into any classroom in the new American International School of Jeddah (AISJ) campus, and you will see individualized learning, student collaboration, advanced technology, and innovation; all features of authentic American education.
AISJ opened the doors to its new campus in January, and since then, the students and staff have been enjoying their new space and all that it offers. Not only is the campus more spacious, with enough classrooms for 1,750 students, the classrooms are also much larger. Solaf, a 2nd grade student, enjoys her new classroom because of how much space they have to learn. She also enjoys her teacher’s new interactive screen, which she and her classmates are able to use during lessons.
Fully-equipped science labs are placed throughout the school, allowing Elementary, Middle, and High School students the opportunity to work and learn in a lab setting. The two-story Library provides students private study areas, flexible seating, and an extensive collection of books for research and reading. The 650-seat theatre-style auditorium, which is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, offers a professional venue for student productions.
The number of after-school activities offered to AISJ students has nearly doubled, and now includes cycling, parkour, tennis, and basketball. The Athletics Complex has led to the creation of more student sports teams, including a swim team and a tennis team.
Out of everything the new campus offers their students, Tahera Ahmed, an alumna and current staff member of AISJ, is looking most forward to all the new memories that will be made at the new campus. “The old campus was very close to my heart because as a student, I had lots of fun memories associated with it. I want my students to have the same bond with this campus.”
Enrollment for the 2019-20 school year is now open for all grade levels.
