American International School of Freetown
The American International School of Freetown (AISF) offers an accredited US curriculum Pre-Kindergarten through grade 8 to students age 3 to age 14. All curriculum is based on US educational standards and is published and available to our families as well as to the public on our web site. The program of studies at AISF is adapted to take advantage of and serve the needs of our culturally-diverse school community. Accredited high school education is provided through the University of Nebraska High School online program of studies and can lead to a US High School Diploma.
The blended age/grade classroom is a strength of AISF education. AISF has created multi-age groupings of students that provide students with developmentally appropriate academics and an authentic social experience at school. Multi-age groups are rich social environments for students, supporting emotional and social growth and developing a greater sense of responsibility in students. Because class sizes are small and faculty are skilled in differentiating (adapting) instruction for each student, academic 5 progress goes well, allowing students the opportunity to accelerate or review as they need. While the classroom has students of diverse ages and grade levels, each student does complete their specific grade level, fully prepared to move to the next grade level.
