The AISB boasts a graduation rate of 90% at the universities abroad.
The curriculum is based on the prestigious International Baccalaureate Programme, while the AISB activity is accredited by institutions such as New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Council of International Schools and International Baccalaureate Organization.
“The 55th year of existence of the American International School of Bucharest finds us ready to offer our students the highest education level. The teacher staff represented by 19 nationalities, students and parents from 60 countries, as well as the international renowned curriculum represent the strong points of our institution (…),” said Dr. Robert Brindley, AISB director.
“The enrollment requests this school year was 20 per cent higher than in the previous year. We accepted many students from Turkey, China and Great Britain, students with very good results at the schools where they had studied before coming to Romania. The requests from the Romanians were also high, but the school rules prevent us from accepting more than 30% from one nationality,” said Cătălina Gărdescu, AISB Manager of Admissions&External Relations.
