The school's philosophy is based on the belief that all students are entitled to an education that stresses the dignity and worth of the child and that teaches children at their own intellectual, physical and emotional levels. All students are encouraged to develop the attitudes of tolerance and cooperation towards others. Our AFNORTH community provides a unique opportunity for intercultural learning and international goodwill. The school is dedicated to enriching the educational environment for each child through opportunities provided by our multi-national community.
School policy is established by a Board of Governors appointed to represent each of the four sponsoring nations. Each national section has its own principal/head teacher, who is responsible for the students of that section. Responsibility for the administration and coordination of AIS lies with the director who works in close cooperation with the principal/ head teachers. Teachers at AIS are fully qualified in each nation's own system and are required by their governments in order to meet the educational needs of military families serving abroad. These agencies are: Department of Defense Dependent Schools (US), Ministry of Defense (Germany), service Children's Schools (UK), and the Department of National Defense (Canada). The AFNORTH staff are sensitive to both the special needs of our transient student population and the advantages inherent in this unique school setting. The school is an outstanding facility featuring attractive classrooms, laboratories, cafeteria, library and sports complex.
