Basic InformationThe American International School - Chennai at Taramani was designed by the Hillier Group, the renowned, Massachusetts-based firm of architects. The comfort and safety of the school's inhabitants were taken into consideration at every stage of the planning and construction of the new campus, culminating in the finest educational establishments of its kind in southern India.All classrooms are air-conditioned, as are the sports hall, health center, cafeteria, and administrative offices. The layout of the buildings takes advantage of the sea breeze while water features, ample trees, and shrubberies help maintain a cool environment in the public areas.
The age and needs of the children, who use the classrooms, was taken into consideration.
AISC seeks to admit students of expatriate families temporarily residing in Chennai, and those Indian students who meet the MEA criteria. Students who enroll at AISC are in agreement with the school vision and mission, and are capable of benefitting from the types of programs offered.
Students may be considered for enrollment at the American International School - Chennai only after their application is complete. The following procedures are used to process the applications of prospective students:
Application : Submit an application and the supporting documents along with an application fee. One application must be submitted for each applicant. To facilitate the application process and ensure that all necessary forms and documents are received by AISC in a timely manner, we generated the Application Checklistfor your convenience.
Please note that all requested information and application documents must be submitted before the admissions process can begin. Once the application is complete and all materials are received, the Admissions Office will review the application. Receipt of the application and application fee does not guarantee admission. It only prepares it for Step two of the application process, which is the review of the application. Applications can be sent to us via courier, e-mail or fax.Review of the applications takes time. It may take up to two weeks for the Admissions office to process a completed application. During school holidays, including the summer (June and July), completed applications cannot be reviewed and, therefore, no action can be taken on admissions during this time. Applications may continue to be received by the Admissions office staff. However, official processing of applications may be deferred to a later date.
The AISC academic year starts in August and ends in June of the following calendar year. Applicants for admission to AISC are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible. There are no firm application deadlines, but as certain grade levels tend to fill up rather quickly, it is recommended to apply rather sooner than later. The application is reviewed in light of: available seats, prior academic achievement and the schools ability to provide adequate EAL and/or Learning Support. If any of these factors pose evident concern, the student will be offered a spot in the wait pool or denied admission. If the Admissions Office has additional questions or concerns about a student, the family will be contacted to provide additional information. In such cases, a review team will be formed with appropriate personnel, which may include the divisional principal, counselor, Learning Resource Specialist and teacher(s). In all other cases, the application moves to step three.
