Educational Support Services

The Special Education Department at American International School exists to meet the diverse needs reflected in the student population by providing specialized instruction and advisory services to eligible students. AIS strives to provide the highest quality education, irrespective of disability, meeting students at their point of need and teaching them in their least restrictive environment.

Academic Support is designed for students who do not have an identified learning disability but need some extra support in the classroom. These services could include working with an aide, a quiet classroom to work in, or working on study or organizational skills.

English Language Learning

The English Language Learners (ELLs) Program assists students in their core curriculum studies and helps them improve their English language skills. Students who are selected for the program are usually below grade-level in their English proficiency and need the extra one-on-one attention to ensure that they are successful academically at AIS.

Depending on the level of English proficiency of our dual language students, they will attend ELL support classes three to four times per week. Sometimes these sessions will be with other students who are at a similar level of language ability in a small group format.

We strive to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment for English language learners. We encourage peer collaboration, pair students with language buddies, and promote cultural exchange activities to foster a sense of belonging and create opportunities for language practice and mutual learning.

We integrate technology into our English language learning programs to enhance student engagement and proficiency.
