    SCHOOL PROFILE
    Atlanta International School (AIS) opened in 1985 as an independent, non-profit, secular school delivering its programs in multiple languages. AIS is a not-for-profit 501c3 registered in the State of Georgia and is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees who appoint the Headmaster to run the school. AIS offers three International Baccalaureate (IB) programs to 1,270+ U.S. and international students from three-year-old kindergarten to grade 12. Rigorous academics are enriched by a world-class language acquisition program, which begins with a full-immersion preschool program in Spanish, French, German and Mandarin. The school offers STEM-and STEAM-endorsed and bilingual diplomas in addition to the prestigious IB diploma. Beyond the classroom, AIS students participate in award-winning performing and fine arts opportunities, competitive athletics and global experiential learning. The AIS community comprises over 95 nationalities who collectively speak more than 65 languages. The 97 students in the AIS Class of 2018 join the 1,498 AIS alumni around the world. AIS is accredited among others by: the Southern Association of Independent Schools/AdvancEd, the Council of International Schools, the Agence pour l'Enseignement Français à l'Étranger and is an authorized IB Continuum School offering the Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and IB Diploma Program.  All AIS students are IB students.

    To meet the challenges and opportunities of our interdependent, fast-changing world as responsible citizens, young people require flexible intellectual competence, self-discipline, and a global outlook. To achieve these goals, they need rigorous academic preparation and a passion to become the best they can be. To thrive in and contribute to this world, they must have a solid sense of self and respect for others—as individuals, as members of a group, as citizens of their nations, and as members of the global community. Extraordinary individuals will be called upon to shape the 21st century. The mission of Atlanta International School (AIS) is to develop such individuals.

    We believe that encouraging each student to discover the intrinsic joy of learning and purposeful effort will help each one to set and achieve high academic standards.  Furthermore, we believe it is vital to nurture mutual respect and understanding among all members of our community. Together we cultivate a spirited sense of hope in human potential. We believe the diversity of our community provides an extraordinary opportunity to enable our students to communicate, create, and collaborate in order to build a peaceful future.

    Our mission to develop “extraordinary individuals who will shape the 21st Century” has always been grounded in our three pillars of Rigorous IB Curriculum, World-Class Language Learning and Inclusive, Multicultural Community.

    External forces compel us to evolve and expand on our pillars, and to recommit to our students’ development of a Global Mindset. We must design experiences that enable our learners to become Adaptable, capable thinkers who demonstrate Perseverance and Resilience; we must create an environment that provides ample opportunities for Collaborative Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship.

    In our goals for this three-year rolling strategic plan, we strive to consider our programs with a view to our history and our future. How do we build on 33 years of accomplishment in international education? What are the structures, schedules and processes we need to support student learning? In which areas do we need to evolve our programs? What new ways of working should we consider? How should we think about learning spaces throughout our campus? And the most important question remains -- How do we best prepare our students for the world outside of AIS?
