The AIS Annual Report 2015-2016


As we shape our future and forge our way ahead, we are reminded to occasionally look back. Every year, we publish a report on all aspects of our school, from the finances and capital resources that sustain the business, to a summary of student achievement. It tells the story of our school and helps us, as a learning organization, track how well we are living up to our Mission to nurture, include, challenge, and respect all members of our community.

Please enjoy this school year in review and celebration of our students, parents, faculty and staff, alumni, and friends who continue to make AIS a truly remarkable community.

Athletics and Activities


Knights in Action: Congratulations to all of our fall season athletes who completed their seasons this past weekend. They are represented AIS extremely well and we came home with a good amount of trophies and medals!

Winter Season: Tryouts for the winter season are underway. Please click HERE for the schedule and if you have missed a sport you would like to try out for please speak with someone in the Events Office.

ISST Boys Volleyball: Thank you to all of the housers that had guests last weekend for our Volleyball tournament. The tournament was an amazing success largely in part to you welcoming our guests into your homes.
