Set within the historical surroundings and significant cultural context of Vienna, AIS is the oldest English language school offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) in Austria. It forms a unique combination of family atmosphere and an ambitious educational programme, supported by extensive experience in academic achievement. School programmes are designed to aim at the creative and emotional growth of individual students, as well as developing their leading qualities. The school recognises individual learning processes and strives to include a variety of teaching methods so that students can reach their full potential within the various areas – be it science, sport or visual and performing arts. A good example of how AIS Vienna works is the special focus on the “sensitive” grade six, seven and eight.
