Anglo-American School of Sofia. The Anglo-American School was founded in 1967 under the sponsorship of the American and British embassies to provide English language education for the dependent children of their personnel. At the present time fifty percent of the enrollment is from these two and other diplomatic missions in Sofia and the remainder are drawn from the expatriate community with a few Bulgarian nationals.

The board consists of nine members; four appointed by the American Ambassador, four by the British Ambassador and one the elected President of the Parent Teacher Organization.

The curriculum seeks to combine the best elements of the American and British programs, and there is an emphasis on individualized instruction. Within the main school there are two major groupings: Pre-School to grade 4 and grades 5-8.

Up through Grade 6 the homeroom teachers are responsible for the four core areas of English (Language Arts), mathematics, science and social studies and follow recently revised curricula. In Grades 7 and 8 there is more specialized departmental teaching. At all levels the core program is supported by programs in art, French (from Grade 3), information technology, music and physical education. The curriculum is supported by a range of computer hardware and software and by a spacious and well-resourced library. There is an intensive ESL program from Grades 1-6, and a flexible resource program for students with some limited learning disabilities.

The school is located in the attractive grounds of the American College. An increasing range of co-curricular activities are offered, including art, basketball, drama, ice-skating, karate, knowledge bowl, newspaper, swimming, skiing (a week in February), tennis, and volleyball.

Space is limited, and there are quotas for admission, so early application is desirable.
