Fantastic and highly impressive school. Providing my kids with the opportunity to become truly conversant in a foreign language, having them learn through an interdisciplinary approach, and being surrounded by diversity are greatly important to us. AIS nails it.

The Atlanta International School is an extraordinary place for students to grow, thrive, and become global citizens with a passion for social justice. My high school daughter is very pleased with her academic load, friend group, and the range of athletic teams available. The academic level is higher compared to her previous schools abroad, and we feel confident that she is obtaining a top-notch education. The leadership team is dedicated and hard-working. The unique aspect of AIS is that students can learn languages through immersion as well as through the heritage language program. My daughter is in her fourth language. The arts are highly valued and all students can choose from Art, Design, Musical Theatre, Orchestra, Band, and private instrumental instruction. This is a fabulous school. I highly recommend AIS.

It has a unique vibe where every day is interesting and exciting for them.

My three children are thriving at this school. It is unique and I think through the language they are learning and all the other exposure to global citizens will make them incredibly competent in the future. Choosing any other school in Atlanta would be unthinkable for our family now.

We have four children ranging from K through upper school--this is an amazing school and it has kept our family in Atlanta way longer than we ever expected when we first moved here ten years ago. I recommend the school without reservation. It is a unique school and community. Incredibly caring.
