homepage = The American International School / Dhaka (AIS/D) is an independent co-educational day school located in
Baridhara, Dhaka, Bangladesh, and serving students of all nationalities in pre-Kindergarten through grade 12.
The precursor to AIS/D was the Dacca American Society School (DASS), founded in 1953, while Bangladesh was still
East Pakistan. DASS closed during the Bangladesh Liberation Warin 1971, and AIS/D was founded in 1972.
At its founding in 1972, AIS/D was housed in a single building which was located in Gulshan, serving a small population of international students in Kindergarten through Grade 8.
The current school is located on a convert|4|acre|m2|sing=on site in
Baridhara, a residential area of Dhaka, serving pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12.
At the beginning of the 2005-2006 school year, enrollment was 650. Of the total, 149 were U.S. citizens, 70 host-country nationals, and 431 third-country nationals. [http://www.ais-dhaka.net/]
Instruction is in English, and the curriculum is reflective of a college-preparatory U.S. school. The national and cultural diversity of the student body and faculty, in combination with its location in Bangladesh, interact to add extra dimension to the curriculum.
AIS/D introduced the International Baccalaureate program for the first time during the 2006-2007 school year. The graduating class of 2008 is the first AIS/D class to ever have the chance to receive the IB diploma.
AIS/D is recognized and accredited by the
New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and by the Council of International Schools. [http://www.ais-dhaka.net/]
The vast majority of AIS/D alumni go on to universities in the English-speaking world, primarily in the USA and Canada, and the school has successfully prepared students for
Ivy Leagueuniversities in the USA as well as Oxbridgein the UK. However, AIS/D has no formal alumni association.
