About ΛIS

Greetings from the Head of School

William Johnson   Director of Curriculum & LearningGreetings from ΛIS!

Thank you for visiting our school’s website. We think of ourselves as family here and invite you to explore the many threads of our lives that bind us together. We hope that the unique qualities of American International School may both attract and inspire you. I encourage you to look closely at us to determine whether our school family offers the right fit for the education your family seeks.

Since opening its doors in 2006, American International School (ΛIS) has evolved well beyond simply delivering an American-based curriculum to students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. Embracing a philosophy that everybody learns, we support our high standards with a variety of programs -- preeminently our English Language Development Program -- and teaching strategies that ensure we identify and address the learning needs of each and every child.

Our positive and affirming learning environment is rooted in the family culture we foster here. We are an inclusive community! Every student and parent, every faculty and staff member, and even extended school community members are gathered into our school's embrace. And to every child who enters ΛIS, our commitment is for life. While we applaud the many accomplishments along the course of each child's development and celebrate that crowning moment called high school graduation, we especially cherish the enrichment of our family experience through the many alumni who return "home" to encourage and inspire their younger peers.

ΛIS is equally blessed with an accomplished faculty who are passionate about their craft and utterly dedicated to creating engaging and stimulating learning experiences for our students. Not only are they subject masters, but they are also student advocates who understand the importance of building relationships beyond the classroom and to mentor students in matters of character and values.

While most ΛIS faculty members hail from North America and possess teaching credentials from one of the states or provinces there, we also have teachers who hold credentials from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. Over fifty percent of our teachers hold master's degrees or higher. Our students also benefit from our teachers’ wealth of experience and skills reflected in the wide range of learning experiences that are student-centered, inquiry-driven, and project-based.

I invite you to visit us and experience the difference that a school family can make in the growth and development of your child.

With warm regards,

Dr. William Johnson
Head of School
