Review about The American International School in Salzburg

Alexander's parents
We entered this school on the recommendation of friends. I really liked the location of the school, besides, we selected a school with an American program, since the child dreamed of entering an American university. The school, in principle, met our expectations. The level of education they give is good, but not outstanding. Living conditions are decent. Since this was the only option with a boarding house and an American program, we somehow did not compare prices with other schools, and when for the sake of interest we decided to look at similar options in Austria, we were pleasantly surprised that our school is worth adequate money. Sasha has another year to study. Already now he is very actively working on preparing for admission. I hope we succeed!
American International is a good and probably the only option for a boarding school in Austria, where you can study at the American High School program. When we arrived there for the first time, we were not particularly impressed with the living conditions: the school clearly needed a thorough repair. However, in recent years, the school has managed to solve these problems and correct the shortcomings of living. More extracurricular activities and sports were also offered. We are glad that in the end we chose this school. The level of education here is really good.
My sons were in this school from grades 10 to 12. Before admission, with the help of the smapse agency, it was possible to organize a visit to the school and a personal meeting with the director. The school has a great location. We liked Salzburg itself very much - a beautiful beautiful city with clean air and an amazing fortress on the mountain. While on the territory of the school, you can admire the mountains. A peaceful and inspiring place. As for the school itself, the level of education here is not bad, but nothing much should be expected. The school has a fairly affordable price compared to similar options in Austria. In my opinion, for such money the school offers a decent level of education and accommodation. Of the shortcomings, I can note a rather impressive number of Russian speakers in school. It wasn't critical for us. The main thing in school is everything, but a decent level of education and a comfortable environment for the child. They can give it here.
I am student of this School and this is the Best School. Thanks for Updating My School List
Thanks for your review!
Anna H., mother of student Gleb
(American International School Salzburg review)

We chose a school for a long time, but now, at the end of the first year, we are happy with everything here, we did not regret the choice at all. There is a well-groomed territory, and there are own stadiums and treadmills, and kindergartens, and school buildings for any classes - from language classes (here listening equipment, video screens and projectors, children learn the language with live examples) to modeling studios, music, dancing. Education turns out to be balanced: if in Russia you took your child to classes after classes, then here everything is needed right at school. It is convenient (no need to go anywhere, children live right there on the territory) and more profitable (everything is included in the total cost for the year).

We quickly accepted the documents, there was no red tape, a very friendly selection committee (here again, thanks to Sofia for helping to collect and organize everything).

They look after the children: you can contact the tutor as you want and ask how the child is in all areas. We receive study reports, recommendations from teachers, photographs from various events.

A separate plus for us is the European location: we can visit a child twice a year without any problems (in the USA or Canada it would be harder, of course). Well, linguistic diversity is only a bonus: I think that after graduation my son will speak absolutely fluent in both English and German.

Thank you very much again! We were so worried before enrollment, and thanks to you everything went better than ever! Professionals!
