MANAGEBAC

All students enrolled in grades 6 to 12 as well as their parents have an account on our e-platform called ManageBac. This platform is meant to offer students support and families information about schedules, tasks, class details and assignments. Regular ManageBac training sessions are provided for parents but if you have questions or issues accessing your account, please contact the School Registrar, Laura Amza at lamza@aisb.ro .

HOMEWORK POLICY

At AISB we believe that regular homework is an important element of improving student learning and the developing skills and attitudes that support our students in their post-secondary education. Homework is defined as out-of-class tasks assigned to students to extend, continue or elaborate upon previous classroom work, or to prepare for future classroom work. Homework encompasses all school work or activities that students are required to complete outside of the normal school day.

The homework policy of AISB aims to help students establish a healthy balance between commitments in school, after school, and at home. Please check with the Secondary School office (Simona Stan – sstan@aisb.ro; 021 2044315) for the homework policy.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Regular and timely attendance is integral to the teaching and learning process, as most learning activities and experiences cannot be duplicated outside of the classroom. Given the value we place on attendance and punctuality, we have established the following policies and procedures to help ensure students attend regularly and punctually. Please check with the Secondary School office (Simona Stan – sstan@aisb.ro; 021 2044315) for the attendance policy.

STRUGGLING WITH TRANSITION?

The Secondary school section of our school benefits greatly from the help of several Counselors:

  1. Stephanie Finnell – Middle School Counselor

  2. Oddny Bakke – Grade 9 & College Guidance Counselor
  3. Tim Battersby – HS & College Guidance Counselor

AISB helps a lot with the transition of students and parents so make sure you reach out.

AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

A variety of competition levels are arranged with other schools and clubs in the local area and AISB is a proud member of CEESA (Central and Eastern European Schools Association). Our membership in CEESA and other organizations such as ISTA and AMIS provide our students with excellent opportunities to participate in a wide variety of academic, cultural and sporting events.

 

We look forward to welcoming you on the first day and thereafter. In the hope that your stay at AISB will be engaging and inspiring, please let us know if there is anything else we can help with so that you feel fully prepared.
