On behalf of the more than 60 teachers, assistants, counselors, and staff, welcome to the AIS Vienna High School. Our goal is to help each of our students define success in a nurturing environment that supports educational excellence. Ultimately we prepare our students for the next step in their lives after AIS Vienna. We offer the best in international education: challenging and diverse academic programs, fine arts and extra-curricular options, opportunities for community and school service and an environment which fosters cultural appreciation and respect for diversity.
Our 265 students from around the world gain the academic, social and leadership skills necessary to enhance and contribute to our global community. Our broad learning choices and diverse experiences lead to a US High School Diploma, with the majority of our Grade 11 and 12 students electing to pursue the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, a rigorous two-year program recognized around the world. Almost all students take IB courses and some students may also elect to complete the Austrian Matura Equivalency Program, matching an Austrian Diploma.
We pride ourselves in ensuring that students have opportunities to pursue their interests and explore new ones. Our co-curricular program offers athletics, performing arts, community service, and globally-minded clubs. Students will travel within and beyond Austria to appreciate our wonderful host country and our unique place in Europe.
We have the utmost confidence our students are more than prepared for university in Europe, North America or anywhere in the world. With students and their learning as our top priority, experienced teachers and best educational practices, AIS is a great place to be.
