In August this year, the Amsterdam International Community School (AICS) opened up a second location in order to help reduce the long waiting lists. The main location has a Primary and Secondary School in a residential area, which is next to the World Trade Center at Amsterdam Zuid.
The new location, named AICS Satellite, is just ten minutes away at A.J. Ernststraat, opposite the Gelderlandplien Shopping Centre in Buitenveldert. This school year it has catered for groups 0, 1, 2 and 3, which are already full. More classes will open up for the 2017/18 academic year.
On Saturday 21 January all families are invited to the AICS Open Day at both locations. The Primary School leadership team will be hosting a workshop for all parents interested in learning about the AICS’ pedagogy, didactics and curriculum. As AICS is a community school and profoundly geared towards motivating Inquiry-based teaching and learning, all parents are invited to experience the understanding behind the phrase 'Concept Based Curriculum'. This includes how children can express themselves creatively and how you as parents can actively contribute in creating confident young learners.
The Open Day is from 9:30am – 12:30pm at the Satellite Location, with the Primary Curriculum talk at 10am. The Main Location is from 10:30am – 1:30pm with the Primary Curriculum talk at 12pm. Families are welcome to take part in some fun workshops, walk around the schools and talk to our teachers and students. No registration is needed, you can just turn up on the day. The schedule of events will be published on the website in January. On behalf of the Primary and Secondary Leadership Team we welcome you to visit our school.
The AICS offers international education in English for children aged four to nineteen years old.
For more information, please visit the AICS website to join the event.
