The High School at AIS comprises Grades 9 to 12. At this stage, students are ready to become the leaders and the innovators of the future.

They are also starting to think about their future after high school, and to make some choices about where their interests, talents, and energies lie. AIS has a robust program of elective subjects which begins in grade 10.

Students continue with the core subjects, and have choices for elective subjects including Economics, Business, Accounting, Social Studies, ICT, specialized Science streams, Music, and Art.
