About Jerusalem American International School (JAIS)
Jerusalem American International School (JAIS) is a vibrant and inclusive community where all students are valued for their unique contributions. JAIS is located in a tranquil and secure educational campus in the San Simon neighborhood of southwest Jerusalem, which is easily accessible by car, public transportation and school van services, from all over the city and the surrounding regions.
As a branch of the Wardour Barbour American International school we provide a rigorous American Standards Based Curriculum, which is accredited by the Middle States Association. We are open for enrollment from Preschool through to 8th grade.
Our forte at JAIS is to adapt learning to the various needs of our diverse community of learners, many of whom have switched between different schools and systems. As a relatively small school we are excellently positioned, with a very high ratio of faculty on hand, to nurture and to facilitate students to excel at their own trajectories – while ensuring that all our
students make solid academic progress and enjoy engaging with investigative discovery of our American Standards Based curriculum.
There are not enough stars in Google for this school. It is welcoming to all members of the International and Jerusalem communities regardless of politics, faith, ethnicity or national identity. In fact JAIS teaches its students to be responsible citizens of the world. The teaching staff come from a wide range of backgrounds and are the leaders in their field.
