Learning Support Programme
Atlanta International School (AIS) opened in 1985 as an independent, non-profit, secular school offering a program of excellence to American and international students.
AIS is located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, GA and presently has more than 980 students in four year-old kindergarten through grade 12. Fifty percent of students are US nationals and fifty percent are international, representing more than 70 nationalities. The faculty and staff are similarly diverse, representing more than 30 nationalities.
AIS is one of a few schools in the United States to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes from four-year-old kindergarten through grade 12. Primary School students through grade 5 follow the IB Primary Years Programme and a dual language curriculum; they take all subjects in English plus another target language – French, German or Spanish. In grades 6 through 10, students follow the IB Middle Years Programme, which is designed to prepare them for the rigorous IB Diploma Programme (DP) in grades 11 and 12. Students who successfully complete the DP, including exams, receive the internationally recognized IB Diploma in addition to the AIS diploma.
AIS is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the International Baccalaureate (IB). AIS is recognized by and receives support from Canton of Appenzel, Switzerland; the Federal Republic of Germany; the Federal Government of Switzerland; and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Kingdom of Spain.
