American International School of Bucharest (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 population of approximately 950 students from 60 nationalities attending the Early Years program at age 2 through Grade 12.
The School offer students the best of the American and International educational traditions, as well as the benefits of access to the rich culture and heritage of Romania. A rigorous curriculum, based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years, Middle Years, and Diploma Programs, prepares students for success in universities worldwide.
The school provides a safe learning environment that enables critical thinking and risk taking, engendering a love of learning. An emphasis upon inquiry, teamwork, mutual respect, and collaboration is balanced by sensitivity to the needs of individuals and to their varying learning styles.
AISB promotes a healthy and well-balanced perspective on life in its mix of curricular and co-curricular activities, with programs that reach beyond the classroom into the community. We are committed to preparing students for a life of responsible world citizenship who are able to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex twenty first century.
