What's New:


Like other VASD students, our students take part in required assessments. VAIS 3rd-5th graders participated in the Badger Exam last spring. The results show that VAIS students out-perform all other elementary schools in the district in both Math and English Language Arts, even while learning content in Chinese!  Immersion works! Our students are thriving!

The VAIS mission is to provide students the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to be global citizens. Our curriculum is international and not limited to a China-based influence. We blend the best educational practices of the East and the West, in terms of language, culture, and teaching methods. Our unique approach helps VAIS students to move fluidly between different cultures, languages, customs, and educational philosophies as part of their school experience.
