Welcome from the Director

Director Timothy Fries

Dear Anglo-American School Community/Уважаеми родители и приятели на ААУ, 

Добре дошли - On behalf of the Anglo-American School of Sofia team, I extend best wishes to all students and their families as we start the 2021-2022 school year.

This AAS Family Handbook and other school publications are available throughout the year on our website – In order to facilitate an excellent learning environment of growth and change, we continually examine the work we do to ensure our practices are commensurate with best practices around the world. The procedures and practices outlined in this handbook are a result of considerable thought and deliberation by our staff in conjunction with student and community input. They are also aligned with best practices of other well-regarded international schools. We are very pleased that you have chosen to join us during this school year and beyond. Please take the time to review this handbook as it provides a common framework and language for our school community and thus fosters a stronger partnership.

Such partnerships are critical for a school and community to be supportive of one another. A key component of a good partnership is effective communication. Please remember that our door is open to comments, concerns or compliments. When we work together each student’s learning experience is enhanced as they engage and explore new skills, hone strengths, and strive to be confident, happy and caring citizens in their quest to make our world an even better place.

Once again, welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

In Partnership,

Dr. Tim Fries
Director - Anglo-American School of Sofia
