About the School
Welcome to the American International School of Rotterdam (AISR).
Since 1959, AISR has offered comprehensive education for students from Pre-Kindergarten through to Grade 12. However, AISR is more than a school. It is more than a record of outstanding achievement. It is more than a place where traditions are valued and innovation is embraced. It is more than an extraordinary learning community, bringing together students from all over the world. It is a place where students can feel comfortable, safe and secure in order to learn to the best of their ability.
Conveniently located just north of the heart of Rotterdam, AISR is nestled in a beautiful community called Hillegersberg, where children can walk or ride their bicycle to school along tree-lined paths.
English is the language of instruction at AISR. All classes, except for the modern language classes, are conducted in English and use native language resources. For students who are just learning English, we have an English as an Additional Language (EAL) support program, where students are are given support so that they can interact meaningfully in the classroom.
We provide a comprehensive curriculum, addressing all academic areas, including: English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Music, Art, Physical Education, Technology and a range of Modern Languages.
At the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year, enrollment was 248. Dutch, American, Japanese, British and South Korean students make up 60% of the student body, with the other 40% represented by 30+ other nationalities.
