The American International School of Abuja Elementary School Program serves children from kindergarten to fifth grade. Our elementary school believes that children need to be actively involved in learning by engaging students in activities that help to further their social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development.
The elementary school follows an American curriculum with an international influence. AISA students come from all over the world and contribute to a culturally and intellectually rich environment. This gives our students a distinct advantage due to the diversity and knowledge they gain from each other. Teachers use standards, benchmarks, and indicators in each core area to evaluate student learning. A balanced education is important for children and therefore, the children are not only engaged in the areas of reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and French/Spanish language instruction, but also in the visual arts, music, Nigerian studies, physical education, and computer technology.
The elementary school addresses individual needs through differentiation in the classroom. Additional support is provided through our English as an Additional Language Learner program and through our Learning Support Services program. The elementary school strives to develop students’ skills, knowledge, and character to enable them to achieve their full potential.
