Elementary School Programme


The AICS Elementary programme runs from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 6.

For English Language Arts (ELA), AICS adopts the Journey’s Common Core Curriculum. This curriculum is a well-balanced curriculum with writing, comprehension, listening and speaking elements. It provides challenging tasks for native English Language speakers, and is well differentiated for non-native English Language speakers.

For Social Studies, AICS adopts the IPC (International Primary Curriculum). The IPC is a multisensory, unit-based curriculum that covers multiple learning lenses including: History, Geography, Music, Art, P.E, Technology and ICT, the Sciences, Society (Sociology), and International Mindedness. International Mindedness is the understanding that learning does not only affect oneself, but it can impact family, community and the world.

For Mathematics, AICS adopts the Everyday Mathematics Curriculum. This curriculum (like Journey’s) is based on the Common Core. All three curriculums start in Pre-Kindergarten and streamline all the way to Grade 6 assuring that learners are gaining the adequate knowledge they need to succeed in Secondary School.
