Established in 1999,
the American International School is a co-educational, international
day school that offers a Pre-school through Grade 12 educational
program. AIS is open to all students regardless of race, religion
or national origin. The school enrols a diverse community of 150
students throughout Sydney and the surrounding suburbs. New admissions
account for approximately one-quarter of the student body each year.
The student faculty ratio is approximately 10:1. Of the faculty,
90% have earned masterís degrees or higher and have an average of
10 years teaching experience. Most have taught at other international
schools and/or American schools.
The American International School prides itself on its close knit
It is a co-educational campus with no school uniform allowing students
to explore their individuality.
The school enrols a diverse community of 150 students throughout
Sydney and the surrounding suburbs. New admissions account for approximately
one-quarter of the student body each year. Over 18 different nationalities
aged between 3 and 19 share the campus and come together in an environment
of mutual trust and respect.
Because of our small class sizes, teachers are also members of this
extended family. Teachers at AIS are committed to educating not
just the minds of our students but their hearts and are therefore
an integral part of their pastoral care. This commitment to the
emotional welfare of our students ensures that problems such as
bullying are minimized.
The American International School in Sydney is organized into three
divisions: Elementary School (K-5), Middle School (6-8) and High
School (9-12). Each of the three divisions offers an academically
challenging curriculum appropriate to the needs of the age group
it serves. This provides a seamless transition into the American
K-12 school system and similar ease of movement into American and
international universities. The school is registered by the New
South Wales Board of Studies and offers the International Baccalaureate
Diploma Program (IB) to students. The curriculum follows American
curriculum standards and is also under accreditation evaluation
by the US based New England Association of Schools and Colleges
and the Council of International Schools.
