AIS might have less applicants than other popular IS because of those rumors about the school.  Easy or difficult, hard to say.  A few classmates of my son got rejected.

Well, the rumors are the discipline of the students, quality of teachers, the facilities, even the academics abilities of the students.... I think those are from many years ago, but are still widespread.

Spreading rumours without verifying only shows one's ignorance and naively irresponsible. I hope there are less of this type of parents in edu-kingdom...

Well. but people are still doing it.  If you go ask about AIS in an international schools FB group page, they will never recommend AIS to you.

Why?I think people have bias and only based on what they have read/heard in the past.  Did they really talk to the AIS parents or go to observe the students?  Before accepting the offer, I am lucky to speak to some AIS parents, AIS school counselor and discuss with other experienced educational professionals.  Most importantly, I went to observe the students myself.  From those who take the school bus to those who go to school by themselves.  Most of them look decent, of course some of them might not look appealing.  Most speak good English.  We gave up a few offers to AIS, and we have no regret so far.  We got recommendations from existing AIS families, students got accepted to good colleges in the US, even John Hopkins.  A friend, who is an experienced English teacher says a lots of good things about the AIS curriculum and she has went for a school visit as well.   The campus is old, not five-star, however I see some renovations going on.  I can't say AIS is a top international school but definitely a decent school.  Bear in mind that, not everything about the school is prefect but I think that is true for every school.


My son has started going to AIS since last August,  he loves going to school.  AIS emphasis on reading and Math; and the teacher based on his ability to let him learn from his own pace.

You mean like Ruth Benny's FB group? I know for a fact that quite a number of her clients were rejected by AIS because their levels were too low. Unlike some international schools "work closely" with consultants and even pay for her advertisements in social media and promoting together in school fairs, AIS doesn't because it is more low key and acceptances are purely merit-based. That's why, she and her company never recommend AIS.
