The Australian International School Malaysiamarker (AISM) is the only 100% Australian curriculum school in the country. It provides a coeducational environment for students in Preparatory to Year 12.

The School follows the NSW Board of Studies curriculum at all levels. It is recognised by the NSW Board of Studies and the curriculum leads to the School Certificate (SC) at Year 10 and the Higher School Certificate (HSC) at Year 12 matriculation.

Organisation and teaching staff

The school is divided into three sub-schools, all on one campus. The sub-schools are Junior, Middle and Senior. Each sub-school is lead by a Head of School, who is responsible for the students and staff within it. A Principal leads the whole School assisted by the Assistant Principal.

A Curriculum Co-ordinator overseas the curriculum and content in each School, in consultation with the Heads of Schools.A Sports Co-ordinator is responsible for the Sporting and Extra Curricular Programme and the Welfare Co-ordinator oversees the Pastoral care programmes. The Development Officer is responsible for promoting the School and general relations within the community.

Curriculum

AISM offers an Australian curriculum to all its students.

The Key Learning Areas for Primary Education (Kindergarten to Year 6) are:

• English (and ESL)• Mathematics• Science and Technology• Human Society and its Environment• Creative and Practical Arts• Personal Development, Health and Physical Education

In addition, students study a foreign language other than English - Bahasa Melayu and Chinese Mandarin is offered.

The Key Learning Areas for Secondary Education (Years 7 to 10) are:

• English (and ESL)• Mathematics (All levels)• Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)• Human Society and its Environment(Asian Studies, Commerce, Geography, History)• Languages other than English (Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin)• Technology and Applied Studies (Design Technology and Information Technology)• Creative Arts (Drama, Music and Visual Arts)• Personal Development Health and Physical Education

In Years 11 and 12, AISM has attempted to provide the broadest pattern of elective subjects that is possible given the relatively small number of students in our senior years.

The curriculum allows the School to cater for gifted and talented children who need acceleration programs in one or more disciplines, for students with specific learning difficulties and for children of non-English speaking backgrounds either through specialized programs or through our policy of differentiating the curriculum.

An ESL support programme has been introduced, which allows students from a non-English speaking background to improve their English skills in a small group learning situation, and also have help and support during regular lessons with their classmates.

Principals

The Principal is Anne-Maree Armstrong. In addition to her duties as Principal, Mrs. Armstrong is involved in the teaching of Visual Arts.

Peter Moxham was AISM's founding principal.

There have only been two Principals.

Follow-on education

Because the School follows an Australian curriculum and school year, entry to and from all Australian schools is seamless. Students have gone on to study at Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, St. Joseph's College, Scots, St. Cathrines School in NSW and Narrabundah College in the ACT.
