assessmentAssessment and Involvement

To ensure children develop to their full potential, Alexandria International Academy continuously assesses their achievements and encourages parent involvement. Alexandria International Academy believes in the following essential practices:


Children are taught to draw back on their own personal experiences and heritage as a fundamental part of the learning process. Vygotsky defined learning as “the creation of meaning that occurs when an individual links new knowledge with existing knowledge” (Williams and Woods, 1997). By allowing children to test and refine their understanding, they are able to create a deeper understanding of academic subjects and their own personal experiences and lives.


Alexandria International Academy encourages children to see through the boundaries between traditional subjects and make connections across them, while relating what they learn to life. In doing so, children learn valuable social, communication, thinking, research, and self-management skills.


Alexandria International Academy prepares children for a diverse world teaching them how to communicate across traditional boundaries by fostering language skills and multiculturalism.
