The American International School · Vienna 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.

Operating since 1959, AIS today proudly serves almost 800 students from Pre-Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 12. Our student body represents over 60 countries, celebrating a diversity within our school walls which mirrors the growing diversity of the planet and the world capital of Vienna. From classrooms to sports fields, from concert halls to volunteer outreach, each student develops intellectually and interculturally while practicing commitment, leadership, and meaningful self-reflection.

Set within the rich cultural context of Austria and beauty of the Vienna Woods, our students excel in a standards-based curriculum taught by talented, experienced staff. Students at AIS access rigorous learning opportunities, and are eligible for an IB (International Baccalaureate) diploma or standard U.S. High School Diploma. We maintain an excellent level of English, and provide both English as an Additional Language (EAL) and other supports for learners with specific needs.

We welcome all to our community of learners. We maintain a school culture of high expectations and close connection to the pulse of international education. Our investments in the quality and skill of our staff, and our ongoing enhancements to school facilities and technology resources are assuring our role as a vital partner and leader in our city and region.

We work every day to blend intellectual, physical and personal development through the experience of schooling at AIS. We are proud of our past, excited about our current growth, and focused on a sustainable future. We hope you will join us!
