Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Elementary section of the Primary Years Program at the American International School of Bucharest. Walking the halls and visiting the classrooms of our Elementary School you will quickly be embraced by the welcoming atmosphere, one where students and teachers are actively engaged in inquiry-based learning where the IB Learner Profile is visible at every grade level.


School Profile

The school profiles share information for each school division, including specific news and initiatives, enrollment data, curriculum design, philosophy, key features of the curriculum, service learning, and academia.


Curriculum Overview

Educating the whole child is central to the IB Primary Years Program. Elementary students spend the majority of their day with a homeroom teacher who instructs to the academic core of language arts, mathematics, and the program of inquiry.
