AISM Statement of Purpose
We at AISM believe that academic excellence is the goal for every student. Thereby we have partnered with AERO- AMERICAN EDUCATION REACHES OUT to align ourselves with the Office of Overseas Schools and best practices in top rated international schools in adopting and implementing the AERO standards to improve and drive our curriculum.
AERO Statement of Purpose
AERO is a project supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools and the Overseas Schools Advisory Council to assist schools in developing and implementing standards-based curricula. AERO provides a framework for curriculum consistency across grades K-12 and for academic stability and consistency of curriculum in overseas schools.This effort is in alignment with research-based trends in the development of curriculum worldwide, and particularly with the Common Core in the U.S.
American-sponsored overseas schools will know how standards-based education can and should strengthen a school’s curriculum, teaching, assessment, and, most importantly, student learning. These schools will develop and sustain a program of standards-based learning in their schools.
- Provide challenging, professionally-validated, voluntary academic standards for use as a foundation for curriculum in American-sponsored schools overseas
- Assist overseas schools to develop their own K-12 curricula that are grounded in standards
- Train teachers to use the AERO standards as the basis for assessing their students’ progress and their own instruction
- Assist schools in developing standards-based curricula and sustaining curricula by becoming professional communities of learners.
