AISC teachers conduct ongoing assessments of their students and use the results to tailor instructional methods and activities to achieve maximum learning.
Report cards are sent home three times a year, and twice a year we hold Parent/Teacher conferences. Parents and teachers are in frequent contact, and meetings may be requested by the teacher or the parent at any time.
AISC is one of the 7,800 schools in 140 countries in the world where student performance is assessed through MAP testing. MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) testing takes place several times a year. Each child is assessed on reading, language usage, mathematics, and science.
The results of each individual are tracked and compared to like-aged children throughout the United States and American schools abroad. Our teachers receive professional development training in order to both read these results across a variety of indicators, and deliver precise and specific instruction on essential skills based on the knowledge revealed of each individual student.
SAT/PSAT/ACT Testing Center
Our campus is the official testing center for SAT and ACT tests in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and the ACT are standardized tests used by many American colleges and universities as evidence of college readiness, or the ability of a graduating high school student to succeed at university.
High school students from across Guinea and Sierra Leone in Grades 11 and 12 may register to take an SAT or ACT exam which are given a specified dates chosen externally by the SAT and ACT organizations.
Students may take the SAT and the ACT as many times as they wish, and submit their best scores to the universities and colleges they apply to.
The PSAT, or Pre-Scholastic Aptitutde Test, is usually taken in the 9th, 10th and 11th grades, and is an opportunity to practice for the “real” SAT. The PSAT is an excellent way to prepare for the SAT, giving students practice. The scores received on the PSAT are not eligible to be submitted on college applications.
