Located in northwest Phnom Penh’s up-and-coming neighbourhood of Russey Keo, near the Aeon II mall facility, the school is spread across 6 hectares (15 acres) of spacious grounds. Brand new purpose-built facilities create an exciting and stimulating learning environment.
We are proud to be members of the global Australian International Schools Association (AISA) network and Australian Independent School (AISNSW) global partner.
Our campus has a most impressive array of first-class facilities, including a purpose-built Early Learning Centre, primary school and secondary school buildings containing a variety of learning spaces and creativity centres, all linked to 21st- century learning: a large gymnasium, library, swimming pool, toddlers’ pool, café, technology centres, maker spaces, science labs, sustainability project area, orchard, free range-farm and many more amenities to foster learning and recreational pursuits.
However, our staff are our greatest asset. Our internationally qualified staff and leaders are globally minded and experienced. They use units of inquiry that are designed using the Australian National Curriculum and the International Baccalaureate framework which provides an engaging and relevant focus on real world issues to successfully prepare our students for universities around the world.
Come and visit us to learn more about our amazing school. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
Head of School
AISPP recognises that successful schools today have an enormous responsibility to educate students for their future.
As such, AISPP is committed to meet the needs of its students with:
To undertake this enormous responsibility, AISPP strongly believes we must focus our efforts on the following four areas:
AISPP strives to understand the nature of every child and provide growth-centred, student-focused learning. Each day spent at school provides precious time to learn and to be challenged. We are committed to moving beyond the traditional approach of teaching all children the same way and with the same curriculum.
Addressing individual learning needs and ensuring individual learning styles and multiple intelligences are a part of all our programs that ensures a stimulating, targeted, personalised approach.
AISPP believes that the quality of our teachers is paramount. We recruit outstanding, internationally - qualified teachers to offer the best programs possible. Our teachers are enthusiastic learners who are inquirers themselves and who develop, nurture, and grow inquiry within their students.
They are passionate about providing engaging and motivational learning activities and rich assessment tasks.
AISPP believes that 21st-century education recognises the importance of social values and social responsibility.
Emotional intelligence, values, social and emotional programs, ‘doing good for society’ through action and service programs, and developing international-mindedness feature in all of our day-to-day programs.
AISPP strongly believes that the environment is the third teacher and, as such, prides itself on offering a beautiful setting, creative, 21st-century learning spaces and a learning environment that focuses on local and global aspects of our shared planet and common humanity.
The Head of School is responsible for the leadership and management of the school, whereby he or she is committed to the mission, leads staff, manages the organisation, has the highest ethical standards, ensures accountability, follows the law, engages with the board, builds relations, develops staff to ensure high- functioning processes and learning, and ensures satisfaction for all stakeholders.
AISPP has developed a model of governance that is strategic and fiduciary. It shapes the mission and vision, engages actively in strategic decision making and policy design, ensures resource availability, and adequate financial resources. It oversees financial management, ensures appropriate risk management, monitors performance, and ensures accountability in all areas to maintain international accreditation standards.
The Head of School is supported by a Deputy Head of School, along with Principals in each division including the ELC, Primary and Secondary. An Operations Director oversees all non-academic matters.
IB Curriculum Coordinators in the PYP, MYP and DP sections ensure academic standards and support the staff to implement the teaching and learning program.
AISPP awakens the potential in every child to have a positive impact on their world.
We are a diverse community of critical and creative thinkers, inspired to create a world-class school in Cambodia that meets the needs of 21st-century learners to thrive now and into the future.
AISPP is proud to be an IB PYP authorised school and a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP).
We are in process for authorisation in each of these two programmes, expecting over the coming three years to earn the IB approval.
The IB was developed 50 years ago and is a world-famous, international curriculum. More than 4,000 schools have chosen to teach International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes, with their unique academic rigour and their emphasis on students’ personal development. Those schools employ over 70,000 educators, teaching more than one million students worldwide. Over 3,300 universities from around the world are very happy to accept students with an IB education.
The IB caters for students from 3 – 19 years of age and offers 4 programmes:
IB World Schools share as a common philosophy a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.
Only schools authorised by the IB Organisation can offer any of its four academic programmes. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.

Success looks different now than it did in the past. We educate our students considering their future.
High-achieving people are frequently choosing to opt out of the traditional job market and create their own jobs, live anywhere in the world, travel and work, collaborate seamlessly and choose their own hours.
For people who don’t live like this, it can sound far-fetched, but this kind of lifestyle is growing rapidly.
What does it take to access and thrive with this kind of freedom? The answer is surprisingly simple and can be best summed up as ‘a 21st-century education’.
A 21st- century education is about giving students the skills they need to succeed in this new world and helping them grow the confidence to practice those skills.
With so much information readily available to them, 21st- century skills focus more on making sense of that information, sharing and using it in smart ways.
Research has identified four ‘Skills for Today’:
These four themes are not to be understood as units or even subjects, but as themes that should be overlaid across all curriculum mapping and strategic planning. They should be part of every lesson in the same way as literacy and numeracy.
A 20th- century education emphasised compliance and conformity over creativity, two skills that were necessary to do well in a professional or corporate environment and to hold down the same job for decades.
Unfortunately, most students continue to be educated in the same way as they were in the past, being taught a standardised curriculum through rote learning and individualised testing, at a one-size-fits-all pace. Schools are failing to teach students to respond to rapid change and how to handle new information, because they are clinging to obsolete methods used in traditional settings.
At AISPP, we are considering the future and how to meet the needs of the next generation to empower them to be 21st- century learners through quality curriculum and teaching and learning experiences.
Generations Z and Alpha are also the most internationally connected in history. They encounter people online from all over the world and can easily make friends on the other side of the planet before they have even left their homes. Schools and parents are also increasingly offering children and young people the opportunity to travel, creating a truly borderless experience of learning.
The students in our schools today are intelligent, independent and extremely capable. They are skilled with technology and comfortable with global and intercultural communication. We can expect that future generations are going to have even more experience in these areas.
AISPP fosters a philosophy that encourages our learners to give their best efforts at all times, and to support others to build a community of tolerant learners.
Our students are happy to take risks and to see the joy in learning for the opportunities it brings. We develop global citizens who confidently move forward to take their place in the world, whether it’s here in Cambodia, Australia or abroad.
