Welcome to the American International School • Vienna, the oldest English-instruction international school in Austria, with students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. We have about 790 students representing over 50 countries, with at least 120 students with dual nationalities.
AIS Vienna, founded in 1959, has a colorful and fascinating story that has been shaped by the thousands of families, teachers, and staff that have been part of our community for close to six decades. We continue to evolve and develop as we say goodbye to and welcome almost 200 students yearly.
Every family has a story to tell and a reason for coming to AIS Vienna. At least half of our students belong to diplomatic and multinational expat families expecting to live in Austria for only a few years and thereafter go back home or move to yet another new country. Many of our international families have also chosen Austria as their new home. A significant number of Austrian families have returned after living abroad for a long time, while many families from the local community wish to prepare their children for higher education, a career, or a life abroad.
Our core values - to Nurture, Include, Challenge, and Respect - define who we are as a school and community. We encourage you to read through our website to learn more about our programs and services. We would be happy to share our story with you and learn more about your family’s story. Together we can explore whether AIS Vienna is the right school for your children.
Please contact us to schedule a visit. If you live overseas, you are welcome to contact us via phone or e-mail. We look forward to learning more about your children.
