High School

High School (Grades 9-12) experience a broad range of subjects. Students are expected to engage in structured and student-directed inquiries in each subject. They continue to learn through complex tasks and asked to self-monitor, self-manage and self-modify. Reflection is an important part of learning. High school students are expected to be independent inquirers.

Counseling and Guidance

Counseling at AISZ takes a three-pronged approach in that not only is emotional support available to students but also to the care takers of children, the parents and the teachers. The philosophy behind the counseling of students at AISZ is that the emotional needs of children go hand in hand with the academic needs.

Student Support Service

We believe that a quality educational program provides challenges for all students and support for students with special learning needs. To that end, Learning Support is designed to increase the academic and emotional success of all students.

High School Council

The mission of the American International School of Zagreb High School Student Council is to link the students of AISZ to the teachers and administration expressing the beliefs, concerns and ideas of the student body and to encourage greater enthusiasm and participation within both the school and the Croatian communities through social, service and spirit activities. We encourage all students to take the opportunity to volunteer for various projects through the High School Student Council.

Enrolment requirements

The following enrolment requirements are adhered to:

  • Students are placed in a class compatible with their age on evidence of successful completion of the preceding grade or year.

Students moving from a school where the academic year ends partway through the AISZ school year will continue in the same grade. For example, if a student has successfully completed the AISZ equivalent of Grade 4 in December at their current school, that student will remain in Grade 4 for the second semester at AISZ (January - June). If a student has successfully completed half of grade 4 by the time they are to begin school at AISZ in August, then they will complete a full year of Grade 4 at AISZ (August - June). Exceptions to this will only be made if it is demonstrably evident that the student would be better served in a different grade level.
