"AIS has definitely motivated me to take initiative in extracurricular activities and projects – many of which helped me stand out in my university applications."

-Ali Abdalla, Student at MIT

AIS has a multitude of big and small events that are held annually in both AD Campus and MBZ Campus. These events enforce everything that AIS stands for and promote our vision of building a school where students learn to lead for positive change. Events range from sports, musicals, environmental events, celebrating the UAE, and academic events. AIS believes that a balance between academics and school spirit will make for well-rounded students.

Admissions offices look for drive, ambition, a strong personality, something that sets you apart from others, and what better way to show them that than demonstrating endless hours of creativity, action, and service (CAS)? It may seem daunting at first, but it is your biggest weapon when applying to college.
