JAIS has high academic standards and offers a challenging program from preschool grade eight. JAIS fosters a student-centered environment characterized by supportive relationships that inspire students to achieve academic potential, think creatively, show initiative, assume responsibility, develop a passion for life-long learning, and contribute actively to society. Our students consistently score in the top percentiles on standardized testing (NWEA Measures of Academic Progress – MAP) when compared with norm groups from the USA.
JAIS is known for its family environment and vibrant learning community. We believe that the critical components of a student’s development include social, emotional, academic, and non-academic pursuits. We offer extensive programs, in art, music, modern language, computer technology, conflict mediation, and physical education in order to enrich our students’ experience and equip them with essential critical and creative thinking skills necessary to create global leaders for the 21st century.
