The AIS Parent Organization (PO) is at the heart of our vibrant, international community. The extensive range of PO committees, groups, cultural clubs and events ensure that all our families can find an area of interest and a sense of belonging.
Throughout the year the PO promotes the school through a series of activities ranging from flagship events, like Worldfest, to smaller projects, programs and activities.
Every family is automatically a member of the PO when they join the school. They are are welcomed by the PO, have many opportunities to meet other parents and are encouraged to participate where and how they can. The PO enhances our school, by building a strong sense of community and supports it in so many ways offering resources, emotional and cultural support.
How to get Involved
All our clubs, committees and groups are open to all AIS families - language is not a requirement, we want everyone to be involved! View below what is on offer - and don't forget to follow the PO on Instagram at @aisparentorganization

It doesn’t matter if you’re a fluent French speaker or a complete beginner, all Francophiles will enjoy the numerous events hosted by Ensemble aimed at promoting the French Culture within the AIS community. From welcoming new families to supporting long established French traditions at AIS, Ensemble events focus on services, activities, and cultural events for children and their parents.

The Deutsch Connection Culture Club supports the German language program at AIS. Furthermore, we support and organize social events at AIS in order to promote German culture and language as well as to support cultural exchanges with other communities at AIS.
Throughout the year the Deutsch connection hosts numerous events from coffee mornings and cookery classes to the Art Posse and, most recently, live guided tours through German cities. The highlight has to be the annual Weihnachtsmarkt with live festive music, arts and crafts, homemade glühwein and delicious holiday fare.
Harambee Culture Club for the Black and/or African-American, African or Caribbean Population At AIS
Harambee assists AIS in fulfilling its mission by increasing awareness and sensitivity among the AIS community to the unique perspectives, experiences and issues of those who view themselves as members of the Black and/or, African-American, African or Caribbean population. Harambee extends this conceptualization to include those who do not identify as such, yet offer their support. We are committed to the fundamental AIS values of respect, diversity, effort and joy of learning.
Harambee hosts numerous activities throughout the school year. The much anticipated signature event takes place in February and can be guaranteed to add color, life and fun to even the dullest winter day.
In addition to Culture Clubs, there are the following PO committees;
Ambassador Committee, Arts Boosters, Learning Differentiation, Parent Programs, PS STEAM Team, Sports Boosters, SS STEAM Team, Teacher Appreciation Committee and Worldfest
