The school has highly qualified faculty and staff who work closely with students to ensure they receive the best education they can, while also promoting the development of their own unique talents.

"This school is small, less than 300 students, but the atmosphere is safe and friendly with a focus on student success. Every teacher I have met is enthusiastic and enjoys his/her job. I would also encourage any parent to be prepared to volunteer their time in support of the school because AIS depends on parent-volunteers to serve on various committees. Overall, I am very satisfied with AIS," commented one expat when asked about American International School in Cariari - Heredia.
