Set within the rich cultural context of Austria, the American International School Vienna is one of the top international schools in the country. Founded in 1959, AISV today serves around 800 students, representing 80 countries, from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 (International Baccalaureate (IB) or American diploma). AISV's core values - respect, aspire, and achieve - ensure that students develop intellectually and interculturally while internalizing the commitment and leadership necessary in today's globally-minded world.

AISV provides comprehensive opportunities for learners from around the world. Our students succeed academically, as well as in athletics, music and visual arts. A variety of activities, including class trips to mountain ranges and service-oriented community projects, allow students to practice commitment, leadership and meaningful self-reflection. We maintain a broad set of offerings to help us serve our students while staying true to our mission.

The tightly knit school community allows students to develop personal relationships with both highly qualified teachers and their peers. We maintain a culture of high expectations and close connection to the pulse of international education. Investments in the quality and skill of our staff are ongoing, and recent enhancements to our facilities and technology assure our role as a vital partner and a leader in international education.

During the 2023-2024 school year, AISV celebrates 47 years as an IB World School. AISV has been an IB World School since 1977, just nine years after the IB Diploma Programme began. Since its inception at the school, the programme has shown impressive growth. In 1977, its first year of the IB programme, AISV had 10 IB Diploma candidates. Currently, AISV has 55 IB Diploma candidates. Perhaps most striking is the massive growth in the percentage of AISV seniors graduating with an IB Diploma: 18% in 1977 compared to a projected 79% in 2023-24. AISV was the 72nd IB school to be authorized, now out of over 5,500 schools worldwide. AISV is one of the most experienced IB schools in the region and the single most experienced IB school in Austria.

We welcome all to our community of innovative learners realizing their chosen futures with courage, curiosity, and joy. We make decisions based on the understanding that we are not only guiding children towards learning but building experiences and memories that will serve to inform futures not yet imagined.
