A Free Day Pass at ASIS

When you enter most schools in Dhaka to speak about admission for your child, you are taken to the office and may possibly meet the Principal. You are then given the details about admission and what the steps are to get your child admitted.
At ASIS we want your child to experience the learning environment first hand, while you are given a full tour from our Playgrounds, Classrooms, Lunch Room, Art Room, Computer Lab to meeting all of our key staff who will first hand look after your children to ensure they are safe, healthy and more. Then, we will do our best to answer all your questions about our curriculum, admission and your children’s educational goals. So, we hope you'll accept our invitation to visit our school with your child/children who are eligible for admission to PS/PG up to Grade 6 so that they and you can experience what we feel learning in the classroom is all about.
At ASIS our teachers are trained to engage our students in their lessons, not listen to lectures. They experience visual presentations and hands on learning lessons, to keep them interested and even excited about learning. They are involved in lively classroom discussions and are taught presentation skills to prepare them for the real world. You don't need to believe me, bring your children to ASIS and let them tell you what their day was like.

Discovery, Imagination and Learning is Fun at ASIS

When meeting with a prospective student’s parents, we find they are full of many questions. Some of which are common to all schools, but most just want to know ‘what will my child learn’. At ASIS our teachers strive to make the knowledge they are imparting fun, which keeps our students interested, and at the same time practical. At ASIS learning is interactive, not passive. Our teachers are not lecturers, they are educators and, yes, there is a difference.
Recently, Grade 3 was learning about communities and as part of the lesson they built the ASIS neighborhood. I was amazed at the detail they put into their efforts! 

ASIS also works with our students to teach them presentation skills that they will use throughout their lives. Recently, Grade 6 gave their first PowerPoint presentations on Greek History.
Of course, there’s so much more that our students learn at ASIS, so stop by for a tour. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have and offer you a tasty cup of tea!

An American Tale

An American Tale

American Standard International School (ASIS) is the second American curriculum school in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It provides a very strong academic curriculum based on the Department of Education of the State of Ohio's benchmarks for primary education. An American education for your child right here in Bangladesh beginning right from PreSchool (Play Group) and presently up to the 7th grade.

It’s a story about offering an American education to all students who might wish to pursue higher studies in Bangladesh, America or anywhere after graduation.

School should be fun. Life at American Standard International School is not limited to academic studies. From the moment you set your foot on campus, you will have plenty to share with friends and family. From Swimming, Karate, Art & Debate clubs to the PTA Bazaar, Halloween Fair and much more. Life at ASIS is all about making learning Fun and creating a community of Parents & Teachers who will mold you into the citizens of tomorrow.

It is rare that all this is offered by a Bangladeshi school. Today's youth will become tomorrow's leaders. At ASIS our teachers drive lessons home in the classroom using textbooks from the U.S. publishers that generations of American educators have learned to depend on. Homework reinforces lessons learned and shouldn't require at tutor for your child to breeze right through it.
