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.
