Ours had no 2nd language when they joined, one finished with a bilingual IB Diploma, another took standard level...AIS prepared our kids well for universities in the US and abroad & the school gave us all a really interesting, supportive community. We wanted them to have a great education, a friendly community and a truly international outlook and that is exactly what the school gave them..
