AISL Strategic Plan

Where are we going and what do we hope to achieve?

A 21st century education of the highest standard should allow students to acquire the academic knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing world. At AISL, we have made a commitment not only to keep up with change, but to anticipate it through an inquiry-based approach to learning.

The AISL 2012-2015 Strategic Map is aligned with a broader AISL 10 Year Strategic Plan and a more defined 3- year plan. The map serves as a blueprint that guides our response to a rapidly changing world through thoughtful and innovative actions to ensure that every student achieves his/her personal and academic potential. The map reflects our commitment to realizing our vision and our core values by articulating seven functional areas and 11 strategic goals defining what the school hopes to achieve. Below is the map.
