Dalian American International School and Dalian Huamei School facilitate a challenging, collaborative, and responsive learning environment that develops student intellect, character, and health. At DAIS/DHS, every learner strives to achieve personal excellence and contributes to the global community. The schools bridge the educational experiences of international and Chinese national students in an attractive, well-resourced and up-to-date educational facility. Building upon our rich local history, culture and beautiful natural environment, we inspire students to be leaders serving local and global communities. Through collaboration, the application of learned knowledge and skills, and reflection, students solve authentic problems inside and outside the school walls, thereby developing an appreciation for diverse points of view, respect for each other as unique individuals, and (his or her own) personal excellence. Our students and graduates are systematic problem-solvers who apply their knowledge and skills in designing innovative solutions to local and global issues. They are critical and creative thinkers and lifelong learners, who are prepared to graduate from high-quality educational institutions and pursue meaningful career opportunities. Most importantly, their community sees them as compassionate, ethical, and socially responsible.

DAIS is an International School Services affiliated school owned by Nord Anglia Education, and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools. Teachers benefit from the school's membership in EARCOS and students participate in sports competitions through its affiliation with ACAMIS. The beautiful campus is located within the Golden Pebble Beach Resort District in the suburbs of Dalian.
