Open Quote My daughter has attended AIES since kindergarten. It has been a wonderful experience for for her. As an International Baccalaureate school with a language immersion program, the academic expectations are high. More importantly is the IB way of learning, letting young minds take the lead to research and presents topics that allow the students to understand the world. This said, it is not a "World Order" type school, it is very much rooted in the ideas of American Exceptionalism. Unlike some other schools in our district, AIES celebrates its diversity. We live in an international community, many of the kids have lived overseas with the military including my own. Therefore, when they are learning about the world, many are viewing what they learn through their own overseas experience. This helps all the student at AIES, sharing their experiences through the structured units, learning of the French language and living by IB tenets promoting good charter, citizenship and self respect.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
