Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

We aim to educate children to be the best they can be. A graduate from AIS will be globally minded, innovative, knowledgeable about themselves and the world, and to be kind to others and the earth. AIS students will learn through quality teaching and firsthand experience in a classroom that encourages critical thinking and discussion and allows them to be inquisitive about their learning and their environment and develop creativity too. At AIS we challenge our students through personalized needs and we empower them to challenge us too and embrace our holistic approach which encompasses their spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical lives.



Vision Statement

The American International School aspires to be the leader in international education in Kurdistan and the region by using modern methods and employing and training its staff to continually be learning and improving themselves. AIS seeks to create a supportive learning environment and to ensure that our students are fully prepared for university life once they graduate from here. We aim to inspire the children of Kurdistan to be the leaders of the future, both locally, nationally and globally and, through our vision, to open the minds of our students using a process of academic and experiential learning.
