AIS/B Philosophy

The philosophy of AIS/B points to the education of future citizens who contribute to the development of their community. We provide an education which ensures that students achieve success academically while being productive citizens in society.

We strive to combine international educational styles with the Bolivian requirements, increasing the number of programs in order to offer our students more options to choose from.

We listen to suggestions and questions from parents. We individualize educational strategies through the inclusion of the teaching/learning techniques according to multiple intelligences, adjusting to special learning needs and maximizing each student's academic success.

We believe that every student is capable and has the right to reach their highest learning potential. For this reason, we offer our students a rich and stimulating learning environment, supervised by our teaching staff that guides their development and progress.

We emphasize mutual respect and human rights by promoting the recognition and appreciation of individual differences. In addition, we inculcate in our students a commitment to preserve the quality of our environment for a better life for future generations.

We promote and support academic excellence at every stage of development. We fully educate the individual so that young people can act responsibly and develop a social conscience that will lead to a better understanding and a deep interest in the problems of their country and the world community.
