AISB was founded in 1962 by the US Embassy to serve the educational needs of the American and international expatriate community. As the school has grown, many local Romanian families have become part of the school community together with expatriate families from government, business, and social welfare organizations.
AISB has a richly diversified population of approximately 950 students from 60 nationalities attending Early Childhood 2 through Grade 12. Romanians comprise approximately 30% of the student population, North Americans 14%, and Israeli, Germans and Japanese 4% each. The balance are from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and South and Central America.
The purpose of the AISB Alumni Association is to further the school’s goals in a spirit of friendship and cooperation in order to achieve our mission:
“AISB engages learners in a rigorous and balanced international education, prepares them to realize their full potential and inspiresthem to be successful and responsible global citizens.”
