Our state-of-the-art campus is located at the foot of Vitosha Mountain, in Pancharevo region of Sofia. AAS boasts 7 hectares of land. The school complex is unique and one-of-a-kind in Bulgaria. It combines the colors and traditions of the Plovdiv revival houses and state-of-the-art architectural design.
The AAS award-winning facilities successfully combines exceptional design and functionality with energy efficiency. Through care and hard work, AAS has earned several notable distinctions including, Most Ecological Building of the Year 2006; LEED Gold EBOM 2012 (Leading in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Building Operations and Management), Education Building of the Year 2012, and LEED Gold New Building 2013 (in this case earning the highest green score ever for a new building in Bulgaria).
Our school has two large wings (the Balkan Wing and the Vitosha Wing). Our facilities include a green roof, many open multi-purpose areas for flexible learning environments, solar panels for heating water, photovoltaic roofed covered parking to collect energy, and a self-supporting water system that allows us to reuse grey-water for our toilets and irrigate our green spaces with biologically cleaned grey-water (for greater detail, please view the Sustainability page).
