Academics

From Early Years to High School, JIS offers a premier learning environment that is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and the Council of International Schools.

The JIS Early Childhood academic program is based on The Creative Curriculum® for preschool, a comprehensive early childhood educational system that has been shown to promote cognitive, physical, social/emotional, and language development of children.

Like JIS as a whole, the JIS Elementary School curriculum adopts programs which demonstrate the best international standards, practices and results for student learning. We place strong emphasis on language arts and mathematics. To ensure a balanced curriculum, we provide programs in science and technology, social studies, modern language, fine arts and physical development.

The JIS Middle School curriculum emphasizes research-based teaching and learning practices through age-appropriate intellectual, physical, cultural and social experiences.

Based on international standards, JIS High School is an inquiry-based academic program designed to prepare students for a university that fits them best, and includes the option to take the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) diploma/courses.
