Upon entering The American International School · Vienna one can immediately feel, by the quality of our daily interactions, that we are a community built upon the strength of relationships among students, parents, and highly skilled teachers.
AIS provides comprehensive opportunities for learners from across the globe. We intentionally nurture students in an inclusive school environment, challenge them to strive for personal excellence through exploration of their passions, and foster respect through compassion for others and for our world.
We challenge each student’s learning within a rigorous, relevant and holistic American/IB curriculum. Our high expectations for each student’s learning are well matched with an environment of caring and support and can be best described as a student-centered approach to learning.
Founded in 1959 and located by the beautiful Vienna Woods, AIS has a long-standing and rich heritage of achievement, success, and lasting connection. AIS today proudly serves 800 students from Pre-Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 12.
Our student body represents over 60 nationalities and over 30 home languages within the world capital of Vienna. We recognize our students as global citizens and value the cultural contributions they bring with them from their own unique backgrounds. We promote international mindedness by celebrating our diversity, world languages and cultures and honoring diverse perspectives. Ultimately, we strive to develop students who see themselves as connected to the global community and have a sense of responsibility to its members.
We warmly invite you to be an active and engaged member of the AIS community. We welcome you to the journey ahead!
