Message from the Director
Welcome to Bucharest and the American International School!
AISB was founded in 1962 and is currently Bucharest’s largest international school. We are a not-for-profit, independent, secular, co-educational school with many parents participating on the Board of Trustees and its committees. Parents play a very important role in managing and sustaining our school.
Our language of instruction is English and our teaching is based upon the prestigious International Baccalaureate Programme throughout the entire school, from Early Childhood through to Grade 12. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges, The Council of International Schools, and the International Baccalaureate Organization accredit our school. We are delighted to be able to offer the finest purpose-built facility in town, on a 10 hectare campus constructed in 2001; located near the Henri Coanda International Airport. We are currently undergoing a number of campus expansion projects to maximize teaching and learning spaces for our students and look forward to opening our largest construction project, the new Early Childhood Center, in Quarter 1 of 2017.
Our mission is primarily to serve the international community in Bucharest with a university preparatory program that enables students to attend universities worldwide, particularly in Europe, North America and Australasia. Our experienced faculty members, at the core of our educational process, are all licensed, most having advanced educational degrees. Student safety is a critical element of our operations and our warm, caring support staff, comprised of administrators, secretaries, and teaching assistants, endeavors to ensure that this is maintained at all times.
On these web pages, you will find a glimpse of our school and its offerings for our students and the community. Our enthusiastic, multi-talented faculty and staff come from nineteen different nations to bring a wonderful international perspective to the school. There are currently fifty six nationalities of students who attend AISB. The faculty, staff and parents are continually working to keep our curriculum and program offerings evolving, in line with changing world demands, to prepare our students for a successful future of work and service.
Communication is one key to a successful organization; please take some time to explore the many facets of our school on this website. The doors of our school, classrooms and offices are always open to our school community. If you have particular questions, you can contact the faculty, any member of the administration, or me.
