Our Vision for Learning

Students walking together

AISG's new campuses will be a place that inspires our students, our teachers and our staff to be their best — a hub of dynamic, compassionate, and connected learning where future-ready learning reigns supreme. 

One of the essential elements of a future-ready school is learning spaces redesigned to facilitate the acquisition of ‘future-ready’ skills and dispositions.

At the beginning of this master plan process we had one simple concept in mind: to create learning spaces that would facilitate nurturing future-ready skills and dispositions in our students. 

As part of our Mission and Visioning process (completed in SY2016-17) we looked at the way in which education is changing to produce future-ready students and the corresponding way in which learning spaces are changing to facilitate that learning. This process afforded us incredible insight into how very different the world will look in 10, 20, or 30 years, and the importance of developing students with the skills and dispositions to be able to meet that unknown future head on.

The Plans

AISG’s exciting plans for a new campus redevelopment project will transform educational spaces across both Er Sha and Science Park campuses into world-class learning environments. 

The project will see Grade 3 – 5 students relocated from Er Sha to Science Park, seeing Er Sha transform into an early learning center. The redevelopment across both campuses will not only enable the school to support its Mission and Vision it will mean there is a 60% increase in floor space at Science Park and a 65% increase in space per child on our Er Sha campus. Construction is scheduled to begin in Summer 2019.

Science Park Site View

AISG’s new Science Park campus - located on the southwest corner of Kexiang Road and Kaitai Avenue - sits on almost 30,000sqm allowing for an expansion of our current amenities to include a full size track, three sports fields, a tennis court, a 25m pool, rooftop play space, and designated parking spaces for parents, guests, and events.

Science Park Interior

Our Science Park campus will host Grades 3 –12 in inspiring educational facilities that support our Mission to nurture future-ready individuals to aspire, achieve, and contribute. As well as the enhanced classroom spaces, Science Park will feature a learning atrium, enhanced athletics facilities, including swimming facilities, two gymnasiums, and rooftop spaces. 

Er Sha Interior

Our Er Sha campus, located on the beautiful Er Sha Island and just over 10,000sqm in size, will be re-designed to create an Early Learning environment that is optimal for younger children. This will include refurbishing the existing buildings and creating an external landscape for play-based learning making it perfect for inspiring young, developing minds.
