What sets us apart

We are proud not just of our students, but of our entire community.  AAS is far more than a school, it is a place that understands what it means to be an internationally mobile family, and what it takes to succeed as global citizens in a changing world...

We invite you to click through the tabs below to read more about what makes AAS the international school of choice in Bulgaria.

internationally diverse

Truly International


AAS is the international school of choice in Bulgaria and the wider Balkan region. It truly is an international school with approx 23% US/British citizens, 44% other internationals and 33% Bulgarian families. Over half of our teachers are recruited from outside Bulgaria.

holistic approach

Educating the Whole Child


The social and emotional growth of the children in our care is of equal importance to academic learning. The well being of internationally mobile children requires a specific alertness and approach to ensure that no child is left behind - emotionally or academically.

Inquiry Based Teaching

Inquiry Based Teaching


We offer an international and multi-sourced curriculum that is concept-driven and inquiry-based, culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Grades 11 & 12. We adopt an inquiry based approach, encouraging children to discover, question, research & test their findings. 

community focused

community focused


We retain a small community feel while being able to take advantage of our purpose-built, state-of-the-art campus on the outskirts of the capital. Everyone feels the support of the AAS community through school and PTO events & daily interaction. 

top facilities

Superb Campus

The whole community of AAS enjoys the peace and quiet and countryside air. We are away from the bustle of the city - yet within easy striking distance of residential areas; how many other schools can boast such a magnificent mountain as its neighbour? 

graduate success

Graduate Success


Graduates from AAS go on to attend some of the finest higher education institutions in the world. In 2018 89% of those who sat the full IB diploma were awarded an average points score of 33 (the global average is under 30).
