Superintendent’s Welcome


Dear AIS-R Community

It is an honor to return for my third year as the Superintendent for the 2023/24 school year. After celebrating 60 years of Educational Excellence together last year, we are so proud to continue this work together with our  AIS-R community for Year 61.

As we look forward to our new school year, and have clearly put behind us the unusual challenges that COVID brought, we are grateful to have everybody back together.  We have a brand new Mission Statement, new Core Values and overarching strategies that we created collectively with our community last year. Hundreds of parents, students and teachers were involved in creating our collective future, culminating in 31 members of our community coming together for three days to confirm our commitment to our community and each other. 

What I know is that we are so lucky to have our children attend a school that pours their soul into the academic, social and emotional growth of each and every student. This community is supportive and caring, and will push our children in very meaningful ways. Our magnificent campus provides opportunities to our children that many could only dream about. Anything is possible. That being said, the heart of what makes AIS-R special are the incredible teachers that work with our Eagles each and every day. These talented educators have worked for years on perfecting their craft and guide students of all ages to be their best in a caring and collaborative environment.

As we return to school, connections between our community members will be prioritized. The connection between adults on campus, teachers and our deserving students. I know that the relationship and community feeling that exists is so incredibly special and as school reopens, we will prioritize these human connections. ​

AIS-R will continue its unwavering commitment to its Mission of excellence and continue to unite the EAGLE community in its strength, creativity, and resilience. AIS-R’s modern approach to education -- utilizing transformative research, processes, and tools -- has allowed for uninterrupted delivery of learning standards, wellbeing and safety, so as to cultivate students to be inquisitive, independent and resilient learners that inspire positive change in their communities. AIS-R is well-equipped to honor a readiness mindset for the demands of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.

We are AIS-R EAGLES: AIS-R is a proud mission-driven community of learners and leaders, immersed in an ethos of shared beliefs, values, and celebration. Since 1963, AIS-R has earned a solid reputation for rigorous academic pursuits, high student achievement, innovative practices, and exceptional programming. As a modern learning organization, AIS-R is dedicated to nurturing responsive, adaptive, and motivated global citizens through a dynamic, strengths-based, and wellbeing educational program. We proudly uphold full accreditation awarded by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS), and we are authorized to grant the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. We have also been honored with “International Certification” through CIS, which validates our drive for intercultural understanding and global citizenship. As a result, AIS-R’s graduates readily matriculate to an array of the most prestigious colleges and universities worldwide and our Class of 2023 accomplished very impressive  IB results as is the norm at AIS-R.

The culture of thinking and learning at AIS-R -- be it through ultramodern STEM, Robotics or Science labs; musics, arts, language opportunities, sports on the grass fields; through activity-rich classrooms; or in our 700-seat performance arts theater -- produces creative, active and memorable experiences, such as the Grade 5 Lip Dub 2022, Life at AISR, Teaching at AISR or AISR’s 60th Anniversary. We hire and retain exceptional educators who focus their energy and expertise on developing students holistically, and, therefore, foster the habits of mind, life-worthy skills, and dispositions that learners require to develop into responsible, active, and compassionate global citizens.

Whether perusing our website, reviewing our admissions procedures, or walking through AIS-R’s “Circle of Nations” on campus, you will get a vivid sense of our genuine commitment, enthusiasm, and positivity for the education of global “thinking” citizens, the promise of our future. We believe in our common purpose of learning and flourishing together. And, upon meeting our impressive students and faculty, you will quickly realize something unique is unfolding within this bustling learning oasis!​

Most sincerely,

Colin Boudreau

AIS-R Superintendent
