School profile

AISB is a private and independent co-educational day school governed by a Board of Trustees elected and appointed from our parent community. The school was established in 1973 by the United States Embassy, initially to serve children of U.S. Government employees. AISB currently serves the needs of a rapidly expanding international population, including families of the local and expatriate business and diplomatic communities, as well as host-country nationals.

AISB offers an international curriculum, from Multiage 3 through Grade 12, informed by best teaching practices. At the high school level, we offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.

Our student body is currently comprised of over 850 students representing more than 63 nationalities. We are committed to preserving this international character to foster a positive learning environment as well as develop lifelong learners and globally responsible citizens of tomorrow.

Campus

Our state-of-the-art campus is a magnificent setting for an engaging and stimulating learning environment. We have frequently been referred to as the most beautiful school campus in the world!

AISB operates three divisions on the 32-acre Nagykovácsi campus. We are close to the leafy residential suburbs of Budapest and within easy reach of central Budapest's beautiful business, commerce, and tourist districts.

Two buildings, linked by a bridge, unite our entire student body. The Elementary building houses students from Multiage 3 to Grade 5 while the Middle and High School building is home to Grades 6 through 12.
