AISB was founded in 1962 by the US Embassy to serve the educational needs of the American and international expatriate community. As the school has grown, many local Romanian families have become part of the school community together with expatriate families from government, business, and social welfare organizations. AISB has a richly diversified population of approximately 830 students from 53 nationalities attending Early Childhood 2 through Grade 12. Romanians comprise approximately 28% of the student population, North American 18%, Israel 6%, Germany and Korea 4% each. The balance are from Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East, Australia, South and Central America. Our campus covers ten hectares (about 25 acres), and offers state of the art facilities to our students, including a performing arts theater/auditorium, library & media center, three computer labs, cafeteria, gymnasiums and extensive sports facilities. The campus is located in the Baneasa forest area, approximately 10 km from the center of Bucharest and 13 km from the Henri Coanda International Airport.
