The American International School of Conakry (AISC) The American International School of Conakry (AISC) is a co-educational day school from Pre-K through grade 12 in the Nongo neighborhood near the National Stadium, a 10-to-15-minute drive from the U.S. Embassy. It is non-profit and non-denominational. At AISC, education is not so much a matter of imparting knowledge and skills. It is, rather, helping young people to create questions and take part in exploration. They make powerful connections to the world and take responsibility for their learning. According to its mission statement, AISC develops intellectually audacious, socially responsible citizens of the world. Small class sizes and flexible block scheduling allow for personalized learning experiences with free movement and collaboration between grades. The school year runs from August 22nd through June 16th and is divided into four quarters.

Prospective users of the schools may wish to inquire further of A/OPR/OS or contact the school directly for more specific and up-to-the-minute information.

NOTE: School situations can change quickly, particularly as schools face cutbacks to learning support programs due to the pandemic, unrest, and economic uncertainty. For the most current information, work with the REO and school. Information in this document was collected by the Department of State’s Office of Overseas Schools directly from the school in fall 2022 and shows the availability of services rather than an assessment of the quality of the services. The profile is intended as a jumping off point for a conversation with the REO and school to understand the best fit for your child. Definitions may vary school to school.
