Delivering Exceptional Education


Students walking together

Fostering Partnerships

Our approach to leadership and board governance is one that fosters a partnership between the Board and school administrators. Adopting this approach ensures our goals are closely aligned so that, together, we are equipping the students of AISG with all the opportunities needed to reach their fullest potential.



Leadership at the American International School of Guangzhou has oversight for all aspects of the school’s learning and operations.
