AIS – ABOUT ACORNS
While in its growth and re branding AIS sought a symbol to represent it within the local community. It was important that the symbol chosen reflected the school’s identity, beliefs and values and was easily recognizable.
To our pupils, staff and the local community, AIS symbolizes individuality, strength and has an outgoing social personality, it inspires and empowers our students to achieve their personal best.
There are three important features of the AIS logo:
- The name of the school and its representation: Acorns
- The structure and shape of the logo: Pyramid
- The colors: Blue and Gold

AIS – Director
It is with pleasure that we welcome families new and old to the website of Acorns International School (AIS).
We are a community of staff, parents, and children—a large family dedicated to the premise that the early childhood and primary years is the key to building a life-long foundation, where a love of learning and school are of the utmost importance.
We believe that young children thrive when treated with love, respect, and consistency, and when they are exposed to a robust, age-appropriate curriculum. We encourage our parents to be a part of their children’s lives at AIS through involvement in many events, from assemblies, to open days to parent-teacher conferences. We believe that frequent communication with parents facilitates a greater understanding of the whole child.
As Directors we wish to give the very best learning environment to all our students to help them on their life long journey of learning, where they develop a passion for education in the very best environment. We hope that our students will always have the courage to stand up for the values they believe are right and those we instill in our students through their day to day learning. We cherish each child’s unique personality, and believe that every child has a gift to give the world of school and beyond.
Please enjoy your visit to our website. We look forward to meeting you in person during the course of the year.
