Back to School Night

Join us for Back to School Night on Thursday, September 21st from 5:30-7:00 p.m.!

Verona Area International School (VAIS), founded in 2010, is a tuition-free K-5 Chinese immersion public school option in the Verona Area School District. We follow a 50-50 instructional model, where students learn half-days in Chinese-Mandarin and half-days in English.

Interested in enrolling your child? Please contact the district registrar and VAIS office.

Welcome to our school!

It’s an honor to serve as the director of Verona Area International School (VAIS).


At VAIS, our students, staff, families, and extended community collectively work together to build an excellent K-5 school.  Our innovative Chinese-language immersion curriculum allows us to prepare our students for the increasingly global world. 


My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call, or email me to share suggestions or ideas to help make this the best year yet. 


I look forward to meeting you!


Sally Parks

VAIS Director
