Top 10 Reasons to Choose AIS Vienna

We Ignite Kid Power
We honor the individual learning styles of each student and bring their inner strengths to life.

Top Student Achievement
We hate to brag, but in addition to scoring the highest IB results in Vienna, our students do things like perform at Carnegie Hall. Our challenging curriculum is designed to be university preparatory, our results in international examinations are consistently above average, and our alumni go on to the world’s top universities.

Exceptional Teachers
Our teachers give extraordinary personal care and attention to each of their students. Whether a PhD in mathematics or a support teacher in Kindergarten, members of our faculty provide the creative nudges, structure, and room to experiment – in the classroom, on the playing field, among friends, and in life. They are expert educators with an American spirit.

Everyone knows what it’s like to be the new kid
We help our globally mobile community feel at home. We provide the tools to handle the trials and tribulations of relocation, and roots into a community that will nourish students for a lifetime.

Small School, Big Opportunities
The size of our school is widely considered “just right”: big enough to offer diverse and stimulating artistic, athletic, and academic opportunities, while still small enough to maintain a strong sense of community in which every child can achieve their personal best.

Our Diversity
Founded in 1959, we are the oldest international school in Vienna, with students from over 60 countries. Our internationally-trained faculty serves our multicultural families working in the diplomatic and corporate sectors, in the arts, academia, professional sports, and private business.

1:1 Tech Integration
Computer labs are so 1997. Our tech is everywhere, fully integrated into our teaching methods and campus so that students have the savvy they need to succeed. That said, we still believe in the timeless power of books, and our libraries feature thousands of titles that offer reading adventures and insights to inspire children of all ages.

The AIS Family
Families experience the powerful feeling of belonging to our welcoming, supportive, and diverse community every time they step onto campus.

Green Campus, Green Ethics
What do the protected-forest campus, the Outdoor Classroom, and the solar panels on our roofs have in common? We see, think, act, and experience green.Connected to Vienna’s excellent public transportation network, our location on the edge of the Vienna Woods means our students never lack for fresh air and time spent in the great outdoors.

Once A Knight, Always a Knight
Students leave AIS with a head start in life: a tight-knit global network of 14,000 alumni that has been growing for 60 years and counting. This is a network of friendship, trust, and opportunity that provides returns to its members for decades after graduation.
