AISB is a private and independent co-educational day school governed by a Board of Trustees elected and appointed from our parent community. The school was established in 1973 by the United States Embassy, initially to serve children of U.S. Government employees. AISB currently serves the needs of a rapidly expanding international population, including families of the local and expatriate business and diplomatic communities, as well as host-country nationals.

At the high school level, we offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. Our student body is currently comprised of over 850 students representing more than 63 nationalities. We are committed to preserving this international character to foster a positive learning environment as well as develop lifelong learners and globally responsible citizens of tomorrow.
