A SCHOOL THAT BUILDS CONFIDENCE SERVING HONG KONG'S LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL FAMILIES SINCE 1986 JUSTICE, KNOWLEDGE, LOVE OUR CORE VALUES A DIVERSE, VIBRANT LEARNING COMMUNITY

Our founder, Dr. Thomas Liang, believed in the power of education to change lives. In 1986, he established American International School (AIS) to give students a uniquely American international school experience that would prepare them for admission to schools, colleges, and universities in the United States and around the world. Thirty eight (38) years later, our founding Core Values of Justice, Knowledge, and Love remain the hallmarks of an AIS education.

AIS is proud of its small-school feel and the shared sense of belonging amongst students, teachers, and parents. In addition to our rigorous academic program, we know our strong sense of family is important to current and prospective parents. Our ‘through-train’ school means that children in our Early Childhood and Elementary School are on the same campus as our Middle and High School students which fosters a deep sense of community and connectedness in our students.

Accelerated by new and emergent technologies, we are on an exciting journey to make school truly relevant for our students, fully aware that the educational landscape is changing. Our Future Framework brings into focus a set of values, skills, and competencies that shape how learning is designed at AIS, with its main focus on developing a key mindset — Confidence.

We are proud of our bold vision, of our 1:1 Bring Your Own Apple Device program, of our world-class faculty, and of our outstanding student achievement. Above all, we are proud of our school community and genuinely excited about the future.

Early Childhood

EC – Grade 1 Junior

Students in AIS’s Early Childhood program follow a play-based curriculum taught by a multilingual staff, with primary instruction in English.

Students learn Mandarin, music, art, and physical education (PE) from specialist teachers and participate in Second Step, a fully-developed student wellness program that helps students grow socially and emotionally. 

Elementary School

Grade 1 – 4

The curriculum in Elementary School has been carefully developed to ensure that our students evolve as confident, independent learners.

We foster their curiosity and their desire to help others who are less fortunate. Students develop empathy and can confidently express their love and compassion for their fellow classmates and community.

Middle School

Grade 5 – 8

The middle years are a critical and exciting time of transition from childhood to young adulthood.

In the Middle School at AIS, we help students successfully navigate that transition by providing an educational program that holistically supports both academic success and positive personal growth.

High School

Grade 9 – 12

At AIS, we provide an American Standards-based and Advanced Placement® (AP) curriculum with a wide variety of classes for students  to choose from.

The High School program offers each student a chance to develop their strengths, explore their interests, and discover their passions through an inquiry driven approach to learning. 

Students at AIS continue to demonstrate so many reasons to celebrate their diverse and impressive achievements. Our students consistently excel in academic, artistic, and athletic achievements that are recognized locally and internationally. As global citizens, effective communicators, empowered thinkers, and well-rounded individuals, their confidence, kindness, and creativity remain distinguishing outcomes of an education at AIS.

 UNITED BY OUR EMBLEM, FOR AIS WE STAND. 

Serving Hong Kong’s local and international communities since 1986, the American International School nurtures confident, caring, and well-rounded students, from early childhood through elementary, middle, and high school.

Come and see for yourself our engaging, collaborative and challenging learning environment.
