Ahmedabad International School (AIS) is a private school located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.[1][2]

It is one of the SAT and ACT centers in the state of Gujarat, other being Navrachana International School in Vadodara. The school also administers Advanced Placement Program (AP) exams.

The head of the school is Dr. Anjali Sharma. There has been only one previous head.

In 2017 the District Primary Education Officer (DPEO) imposed a fine of 110,000 rupees and required a change in the curriculum from the upcoming school year, upon finding that the school was not using textbooks approved by the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board.[3] The school soon transitioned to using NCERT textbooks.

Academics and curriculum[edit]

Ahmedabad International School has been authorized to offer the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).[1][2] Children from Grade 1 through 5 are offered the IBO's Primary Years Program (PYP).[1] Students in Grades 6 and 7 are offered CIE's International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).[2] Students from Grades 8 to 10 are given a choice between the IGCSE program or GSEB.
