After many years of being a parent in this school, with kids going through elementary, middle and high school, I can without a doubt say that this is one of the most welcoming and helpful learning communities in the world. We've traveled through a few schools overseas and in Canada and AAS is beyond anything we have ever seen in terms of the personalization of learning, level of education, facilities, range of activities, clubs and social events. It really does feel like a family with teachers who genuinely care about the future and wellbeing of each child and parents being partners in the school community. Of course, there are some issues, as every complex ecosystem has them, but there is a genuine desire to collaborate and solve problems together. We miss AAS dearly and can only hope to find another school close to it.

I teach here and love my school. The kids are great and the faculty are passionate about teaching and learning. Our school takes care of us very well.

This school is hands down the best choice for Primary and Secondary education following the American system. AAS used both the IB MYP and DP, and all graduating students receive both a High School diploma and an IB Certificate if they opt to go this route. The issues associated with this school mainly lie in situations caused by global politics, as certain teaching staff may not receive there Russian Visa until the end of the first semester. The school population is varied, and consists mostly off expats and children of diplomats, but some Russians are allowed to attend lest they demonstrate an excellent command of the English language. I highly recommend this school, as it is in my opinion the best choice for an international recognised diploma in both Moscow, and Russia as a whole.

Spent my entire lower and middle school here. They have invested a lot into the infrastructure and provided the best facilities for the students to grow and learn. They offer the best tools and organize a lot of events for the students. One of the best schools I have had the pleasure of attending.

Probably the best option in Moscow, but not comparable to a top school in the UK, US or major financial centres (HK, Tokyo, etc). Kids like it but they may struggle later if you move to a more competitive environment. Nice environment and facilities, but for academics only so-so. I would choose it if moving to Moscow (and Moscow is the best overall option available to you), but if there was an option to have kids go to a leading school elsewhere would definitely recommend the latter.

Really bad school, the administartion is really rude, it consists of teachers which cannot supply students with basic learning materials. I have spent 3 years in this school and I learned close to nothing which is needed for my education outside of this "International School", the only benefits you could get is the IB Diploma you wish to get otherwise this school is not the right place to choose for your children due to the large lack of study materials, behaviour of teachers around students, administration maturity, and etc. Most families which join this school leave next year due to how horrible it is and if you have a complaint the only answer this school has to give you is "too bad, leave".
