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.

High School Curriculum

English Language, Math, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physical Education and Wellness, Music, Art, World Languages (French, German), Native Croatian Language, Computer and Information Technology
(integrated), and Design.

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.

How to apply

Contact Admission Officer and make an appointment

To begin the application process families should contact the Admissions Officer. Where possible, the applicant and his or her family should make an appointment for an interview and tour of the school campus. Such a visit is most informative and often helps to reduce anxiety and answer questions about the family’s transfer to a new location.

Complete the Application forms

Complete the application forms and submit school records for the last two years. An official English translation of the records is required before acceptance. These documents should be returned to AISZ as soon as possible to facilitate a decision by the school administration and ensure that ample notification of this decision is given to you.

Assessment of applicant's level of English and/or Math

If there are questions about, for example, the applicant’s level of English or differences in the educational systems, the student and parents will be invited to come in for an interview and assessment (language, math, etc.). When possible, a student applying to middle or high school will be invited to be a visitor for one or two days in order for the school to gather data through observation.

Students who are non-native English speakers, or do not come from a school where the language of instruction is English will be given an ESL and/or placement test to assess their level of English and/or mathematics. At the elementary school levels, these tests do not affect the admission decision. All high school students will be given an English and a Math placement test, and the results of these assessments may affect the admission decision.

Payment of non-refundable Admission Fee

Students eligible for admission according to the above standards will receive an acceptance letter and must pay a non-refundable Admission Fee before their names will be placed on the class list.

Enrollment requirements

The following enrollment requirements are adhered to:

  • Grades 1-12 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 Southern Hemisphere school will continue in the same grade, e.g. if a student finishes grade 4 for example in Argentina in December, that student will complete the school year in grade 4 at AISZ (January-June).
