Ms. Linda Morrison, Elementary School Principal

I am incredibly grateful for your interest in the elementary division at American International School. Our well-respected, highly skilled staff are delighted to serve students from Early Childhood to Grade Four providing a meaningful, well-rounded school experience that centers on Justice, Knowledge, and Love.

As a diverse community who prides itself on inclusivity, our students and families feel a strong sense of belonging and connection to American International School. Our students represent a strong global community and our teachers thoughtfully design learning experiences that invite student voice and empower them to share their unique stories, build community through collaboration, and problem solve creatively. American International School takes great pride in preparing our students to be global citizens and future leaders ready to make a positive difference in the world and the lives of others.

At AIS, we believe that knowledge is achieved and applied through high quality, engaging elementary learning experiences. These experiences are critical and set the stage for all future learning in a child’s life. We believe that academic learning is equally important as social and emotional learning, physical well-being, and artistic expression.  Our students are encouraged to demonstrate their learning through different modalities and we welcome your visit so you can experience firsthand the authentic, personalized learning and talent of our confident elementary students.

Most importantly, our students, families, and staff earnestly love American International School.  We are truly a school family. There’s a palpable sense of joy and care that permeates the school and is evident in the relationships between all school stakeholders.  It’s this love and nurturing environment that draws families and staff to our school.

Again, thank you for your interest in the American International School.  We look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm regards,

Linda Morrison
Elementary School Principal


The curriculum in Elementary School has been carefully developed to ensure that 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. 

Elementary students develop these values through experiences such as our Outdoor Educational Leadership Program (OELP), our Social, Personal, and Applied (SPA) Learning Model, and our Second Step Program, a Social-Emotional Learning program. Experiences in project-based learning, and numerous additional activities that occur throughout the school year, help to develop well-rounded, global citizens.

Elementary students interact with six teachers throughout the week including Homeroom, PE, Music, SPA, Art, and Mandarin.
