American International School of Conakry

American International School of Conakry

We help kids become intellectually audacious, socially responsible citizens of the world.

We are a small school that is doing something big. If you have experience teaching diverse learners and relish, rather than shy away from, challenges, you might find AISC to be the perfect place; you will have outsize impact. Our student body is relatively small (less than 100, on track to become 200 in a few years), but comes from 18 different countries, including many African countries, EU countries, Japan, China, and North America. Class sizes are small (no more than 15), and teachers and students develop healthy, caring relationships. Background checks are conducted on all successful applicants.
