Construction on the new AISJ campus is well underway.
The new campus is scheduled to be completed by June, and open to students in the Fall. This new state-of-the-art campus will feature large courtyards with plenty of natural light, two large media centers, a theatre-style auditorium, two large dining hall, modern athletic facilities and classrooms that meet all the requirements for a 21st century American learning experience.
After speaking with AISJ staff, parents and students, it is clear that there is plenty of excitement over the opening of the new campus. Students are looking forward to the swimming pool and the slide, and staff is excited about how spacious the new school will be.
High School Principal, Mr. Sullivan, is looking forward to the “natural light in every classroom, open circulation and wide, spacious hallways”.
Elementary School Principal, Mrs. Light, is looking forward to seeing the completed project. “I was part of the initial meetings with the architect for the new campus. I’m excited to finally see the end product and see the result of all the meetings, long nights and design sessions we’ve had”. She is also looking forward to the new playground areas that the new school will have for the Early Childhood and Elementary students.
While the excitement for the new campus is increasing, there are students and staff that are going to miss the current campus. Mr. Hallberg, Superintendent, is making sure that AISJ commemorates the past in the new campus. He’s hoping to bring artifacts from 3 different campuses, including an old gate from the PCS campus, a Falcon painting done by an alumni and the famous camel that is located in front of the current campus. “We want our alumni to know that our new campus will carry on the Falcon tradition and spirit that was created in the past.”
