AISB NEWCOMERS SPACE

Newcomers Summary

The objective of creating a newcomers space is to provide all necessary information about the upcoming student orientation day. This space serves as a centralized platform where new students can access details about the orientation schedule, activities, and any other relevant information. 

It aims to ensure a smooth and organized transition for incoming families and help them familiarize themselves with the school community and its resources.

THE CAMPUS

Entering The Campus

The School Badge. The Visitor Badge.

Anyone entering the campus must wear an identification badge. If you are a parent or guardian, we can have it ready for you at Orientation Day. You just have to e-mail simple profile (ID like) photos to admissions@goaisb.ro (until August 8th). For your convenience, we will also have a photographer on site during orientation, but this will delay the process of badge production by about a week.

Only parents and legal guardians can obtain a school badge. Anyone else visiting will need to present their ID at the security checkpoint and obtain a Visitor badge. Visitors are only allowed in if they have a set appointment with someone from the school.

The School Bus

Students can arrive at school in various ways. Some are dropped off by parents or other caretakers, some walk (according to parental permission) and some use the externalized service of Twins Tour. In order to set up transportation for your child, please contact the Twins Tour company directly. They will be present at Orientation, on August 11 and 14, to meet with you and answer any questions.

The Parking Sticker

After the Orientation Day, if you would like to drive into the campus, you will need a parking pass, otherwise known as the parking sticker. These stickers will ensure that the guards know they can allow you to enter and park in the campus.

Entrance is not allowed on campus without a valid parking sticker. Please fill out the form to obtain up to three parking stickers and bring it with you at the Orientation Day.

SCHOOL CALENDAR

School starts on August 15th and ends on June 14th. You can find the full year calendar here.

SCHOOL MEALS & CAFETERIA

Students who will eat from the Cafeteria or from the Café need to have an account set up with the AISB Stradale Cafeteria. It would be very efficient for your time on Orientation Day if you could read through the contract and come ready with questions or ready to sign.

Mr. Octavian Stoica, Stradale Cafeteria Manager, will be ready to answer any questions and support your sign up. Please contact him at manager.stradaleaisb@flavours.ro or (+4)0723657809.

IF YOUR CHILD IS IN GRADES 5 TO 12, THEY NEED TO BRING IN THEIR OWN LAPTOP

In order for all students from grades 5 to 12 to fully benefit from the program and be able to engage in all the tasks they are given, they will need to have their own Mac device.

CO-CURRICULAR activities

Once a vampire, always a Vampire

With a comprehensive co-curricular athletics and activities program, AISB provides opportunities for students to exercise creativity, courage, and compassion when playing, performing, and leading. We prioritize positive experiences, meaningful memories, and forming lasting relationships.

Secondary students are able to participate in Theatrical Productions and Music Performances, VEX and FLL Robotics, Speech & Debate, Model United Nations, and international Math tournaments as members of CEESA (Central Eastern European Schools Association). Many of these activities are offered in different forms to Elementary students as recreational activities as part of the rich gamut of fun, educational, and explorational activities in the ES CCA program.

Our Secondary School students have the opportunity to develop and compete in 8 different seasonal sports – Basketball, Cross-Country, Football, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track & Field, and Volleyball through our participation in the SCIS (Sports Council of International Schools) which features travel and hosting opportunities. Our student-athletes play matches and participate in tournaments throughout the season locally in BISAAC (Bucharest International Schools Athletics & Activities Conference) and with other Romanian schools and clubs, as well as experiencing international travel opportunities.

You can find out more details about all the activities here.

Mother Tongue Classes

There are over 30 native languages spoken at AISB. Almost half of them are taught as Mother Tongue courses and you can see information about these in the Primary Years and Secondary Years.

If you are interested in these programs, please contact the appropriate coordinator (see linked form).

Information Updates

If you have a new address, phone number, email address, please let us know. This will enable us to keep the student information system up to date. During the school year, you can expect emails and SMSes with various important information, and so it is crucial that we have the most updated contact details from you.
