About: American International School of Budapest (AISB)

American International School of Budapest (AISB) is a private and independent co-educational day school governed by a Board of Trustees elected and appointed from its parent community.

Today, AISB 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, AISB offers three options for students to achieve their diploma: the American High School (AISB) Diploma, the Innovation Diploma, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
