Upper School (Grades 9-12)
Motivated Students Find Their Path to College
Enter AIM’s Upper School and you find yourself in a vibrant learning community full of motivated teenagers being guided by a passionate faculty. Many of our students never saw college as a possibility until they came to AIM. Their true gifts and talents lay untapped in their former schools, but at AIM every student blossoms and realizes his or her full potential. Every AIM student goes to college.
Upper School students engage in cultivating the skills necessary to excel in the 21st century. Our students think globally, make connections, create and collaborate every day through meaningful, interactive, research-based experiences. AIM’s coursework is rich, challenging, and prepares every student for college. From the first day of freshman year, our students explore interests, passions, and talents in order to discover their post-secondary path. As a college preparatory school, each student investigates future careers and aligns his or her coursework, electives and college pursuits to meet those goals using our Four Threads to the Future curricular framework.
Regardless how innovative and exciting they are, we believe that there is more to life than what happens in a classroom. We recognize the role of the Arts and Technology in deep and meaningful learning. Therefore, our students spend just as much time in their Arts, Robotics and Entrepreneurship electives as they do in Math. We know that a healthy life involves activity and we are proud that more than 95% of our students participate in after-school Athletics, Arts or Drama.
