We, the members of the AIS community, believe that there are certain principles upon which our school community is based. We believe that all members of our school community possess worth and dignity and should be treated accordingly. We believe that AIS should strive to be inclusive, compassionate, welcoming and non-hierarchical. Implementing these beliefs and principles will not be easy and will require our community to actively confront difficult and sensitive subjects and “understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.” (IBO Mission Statement, November 2002).
- We believe that all members of the AIS community, including students, faculty, administration, staff, parents, alumni and Board members should try to respect themselves and others irrespective of their differences
- Develop their own personal values and respect the values of others,
value their own culture, respect and strive to understand the cultures of others and understand and support multiculturalism in our community
Be ethical, act with honor and integrity and, above all, show concern and care for others in and outside our school community
- For our school community to be effective, we believe that every member should do his or her best to support the principles upon which it is based.
