Amy Clerides Principal

Amy Clerides


I am proud to be a member of the dynamic multi-cultural learning community at AISC. Having been at AISC since 1998 I have played a variety of roles. In addition to having been a classroom teacher, I served as Middle School Co-Coordinator, Assessment Coordinator, and Internal Coordinator for our re-accreditation process.

AISC teachers and support staff are world class. It is a privilege to work with such dedicated, talented, warm and caring people. And AISC students…well, they are the reason I love coming to school every single day! Our students truly are creative, critical thinkers and socially responsible world citizens as we boast in our Mission Statement.

Over the years, I have watched AISC continuously grow and improve. Our ethos of planning is evident in everything we do, from curriculum development to assessment practices to current best instructional methods. Our systematic reflection on our practice has become second nature. We are a small school, offering a family atmosphere, but at the same time, our curriculum and course offerings are rich, diverse and rigorous.

I greatly look forward to working closely with you and your child this year.
