Our school is a place where the first social and community life of your child starts. It becomes a second home for boys and girls, all of whom are naturally curious about the world around them, as well as excited about learning. ADIS’s innovative American curriculum is designed to build on this natural curiosity through project-based learning and other engaging, real-life learning experiences in order to channel the enthusiasm of our students into a lifelong love of learning, discovery and understanding.

Our values run through everything that we do, every decision we make, every interaction we have. Most importantly, our ADIS values form the impacts that we have on all of our students.
