COVID-19
response

AIS is always prepared for any type of scenario and can continue with uninterrupted learning for our students. Our teachers always have their plans ready so students can be quickly placed in online classrooms at a moment’s notice.

TASK FORCE

Our COVID-19 Task Force meets regularly to discuss the evolving situation. They closely follow developments in Belgium and worldwide. All decisions regarding COVID-19 have been made putting our students, teachers, and all of their families first.

To provide the community with an easy overview of all the possible school operation scenarios, the task force has developed a colour-coded matrix in line with regulations published by the Flemish Education Ministry. The current status at AIS is LEVEL ORANGE. Please click here for more detailed information.

Online learning
experience

While students have been back on campus since August, AIS was prepared for online learning and made sure our students were able to continue their education, almost seamlessly. Here is what our online learning looked like for the school year 2019-2020.

Reopening
in May 2020

During the school year 2019-2020, the gradual reopening of schools was allowed by the Belgian government on 18 May. AIS had a partial reopening of campus on that date, with students from Early Years returning. Grade 9-11 students could come to school only after making appointments with specific teachers.
