At AISA, we have four student organisations.
Stuco is a student leadership group where students represent their grade level peers and help to organize activities for the school. These events include talent shows, bake sales and dances, among many others. Members of Stuco work closely with school administration in making these events happen, helping to build interpersonal and negotiating skills that they can carry on into their futures.
The National Honor Society (NHS) was established by the National Association for Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in 1921 with the hope to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. The NHS is more than just an honor roll. It serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
Membership in the NHS is both an honor and a commitment. It is a commitment that has helped shape the Honor Society’s reputation for excellence over the past decades. At the AISA chapter, the members: who are the highest-achieving students aren’t just leaders in the making, they are already respected role models in the learning community. The AISA chapter gives these students a place where they can hone their leadership skills—and get the recognition they’ve earned.
All student members must also reflect the program’s respective pillars to be inducted—ideals such as scholarship, service, leadership, and character—and they must continue demonstrating these pillars within the community throughout their membership.

Model United Nations
Model United Nations (MUN) is more than an extra-curricular activity. It’s an opportunity where one is able to develop their capabilities through debates, negotiations, and public speaking. MUN forges developing one’s personality and provides essential diplomatic values to our youths.
While it’s challenging, what does MUN offer?
- Motivating students to learn about global issues. It is a way to become an active and more concerned global citizen in an ever-changing world; which is more important than ever.
- The opportunity to build confidence, leadership, and diplomatic skills.
- A chance to exercise research, public speaking, teamwork, and necessary skills for future careers.
- In gaining MUN experience, students can learn to network, which is a professional and lifelong skill.
Over the past four years, MUN participation has increased, and AISA MUN delegates have engaged in several MUN overseas conferences, with schools from all over the world (including Al Hekma International in Bahrain and Georgetown Conference in Doha); all of which have been enriching experiences for students. Through our students’ leadership, AISA created and hosted its first conference, where several local international and overseas schools participated.
But above all MUN is a chance for every student to speak. Their voices will be heard. Their ideas will go global! It is their chance to dream, travel the world, gain priceless stories, and leave their comfort zone!
