The American International School Dhaka (AISD) is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 college preparatory institution. It is committed to the realization of students’ potential through a holistic program, instructional differentiation, and recognized international standards of achievement. The board, administration, and faculty strive to offer an exemplary educational experience to all the students we serve, and hold a strong belief in fulfilling our stated mission and vision.
As a school, we work in partnership with our diverse local and international community. Our academic programs and facilities are guided by the philosophical principles of an American education.
During the admissions process, the school attempts to verify that AISD is an appropriate educational environment for each new student through testing and one-on-one meetings between an Admissions representative, counselor, and, where possible, the principal and the potential students and parents. AISD is located in the heart of the diplomatic community of Dhaka, Bangladesh. We are a multicultural institution with a curriculum based on the principles of American education. We challenge our students to achieve their potential, become life-long learners, and contribute to a changing global society.
AISD is accredited by the Council for International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
AISD recognizes curriculum development as an evolutionary process, which is updated as new discoveries are made in educational research about teaching and student learning. AISD has a standards-based curriculum framework with a “backward design”; approach to unit design and lesson planning.
