Our Vision for Learning
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.
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.

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.
