The American International School of Zagreb is an international school located in Zagreb, Croatia, Europe. Founded in 1966.[2]

AIS Zagreb has a current enrollment of 255 students, from Junior-kindergarten to 12th grade, representing 35 countries. The school is governed by a five-member School Board; three of the members, including the Board Chair, are appointed by the United States Ambassador and two members are elected by the members of the PTA (Parent Teacher Association). Students who graduate from AISZ earn an American Diploma; in addition students can also earn an International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Students in middle school and high school have the opportunity to participate in the following CEESA athletics and activities: MS boys and girls cross country, MS boys soccer, HS boys soccer, HS HOSIC, MS Speech and Debate, MS Math Counts, MS Knowledge Bowl, HS Knowledge Bowl, MS boys and girls basketball, HS boys and girls basketball, MS Cultural Arts Festival, MS boys and girls volleyball, HS boys and girls tennis.

AISZ is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In November 2013 a Validation Team representing the Middle States Association (MSA) visited AISZ to review and verify the work of the school's self-study done by the school's Planning Team. The Validation Team confirmed that AISZ meets the 12 standards set by the MSA and, as a result, AISZ has been re-accredited until 2020. AISZ is also authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the IB Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12. The IB Diploma is a rigorous academic program recognized by most universities around the world.
