Learning is not a one-size-fits-all model. At AIM, we believe each student learns best in a safe environment where mistakes are valued as learning experiences. We feel strongly that learning programs should be custom-designed for each student so they are able to master skills and subject material at their own pace, applying personalised learning strategies.
At AIM, we consider students and teachers “forever-learners”, working side by side in a learning community. We believe in the value of guided exploration and student-led discovery through questioning and research. We are confident that students will demonstrate deeper, long-lasting learning through hands-on projects, and real-life applications.
Today’s students are accustomed to constant stimulation, entertainment and immediate responses. We believe that balanced learning must develop under-used skills like focus, independence, and problem solving. We consider mindfulness, independent problem solving processes, and character building techniques integral parts of our daily programming.
Alternative Learning– Alternative learning happens in an environment where all learners are able to actively engage in a learning style that fits them. At AIM, we develop individualized lessons and provide flexible seating and programming so that every student is successful.
Innovation - Innovation is the key to reaching students in our changing society. Innovative teaching motivates students to ask questions, dig deeper, and formulate answers and opinions. At AIM, students take their learning beyond the traditional classroom with the use of technology and real-world experiences. They develop problem-solving skills and independence to prepare them to be active, contributing members of their community, now and in the future.
Micro-school - We believe that an educational community involves academic learning, as well as character development and leadership education. This holistic approach balances academics with personal growth and the discovery of individual talents and passions. At AIM, students begin a learning voyage that will set them up to be joyful, life-long learners!
