At AISJ, we believe students need to be technologically fluent to be successful, creative, contributing global citizens. We believe that technology is not just a class for students, but rather, students are encouraged to work on class projects using technology. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to technology integration. Where appropriate, students can turn in projects by means of video, podcasts, or 3D graphical animation. Imagine taking a class to Egypt through a virtual tour and presenting to classmates at the Pyramids. Next, imagine using mathematics and a design app to create a scaled three-dimensional mockup of Giza. This is our vision for technology integration.


AISJ has a bring your own device program (BYOD) for Grades 2 – 5 in the Elementary division. This program is unique because it allows students to bring their own device to class. Students are required to bring an iPad to class every day. Our objective is to teach students how to use these devices, not just for entertainment, but for lifelong learning.

BYOD goals include:

Promote higher order thinking, creativity, and other 21st Century skills
Grow student engagement
Facilitate greater collaboration between teachers, students, and parents using Web 2.0 tools
Increase student access to technology/digital resources
Integrate technology seamlessly into curriculum
Promote project-based learning activities
Raise achievement levels in core content areas
Model good digital citizenship

AISJ recognizes the fundamental need to provide equitable access to technology for all students and staff. Therefore, we expanded the iPad program that was run at Grades 2 – 5 to all remaining grade levels in the Elementary division. The lower elementary grade levels share two iPad carts with 25 iPads each. Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 share one iPad cart, and KG and 1st Grade classes share the other.

Students who wish to return to AISJ must reapply and understand that all new student fees will still apply. For those returning students who have been gone for less than one year, the Registration Fee is waived.

The role of technology in the High School is to promote the development of advanced lifelong skills that students will utilize both while attending AISJ and beyond. Our goal is to encourage students to find their niche regarding advanced skill development, as well as promoting post-secondary endeavors either by taking further computer science degrees or utilizing these skills in their field of choice.  We want students to learn that by using the technological tools available to them that they’ll be able to pursue their dreams in a world that is technologically based. Ultimately, our students will leave AISJ armed with a digital toolkit that will allow them to find success regardless of which post-secondary institute or field of work they choose.
