The American International School of Budapest (or AISB) is an international school located in Budapest, Hungary. It was established in 1973 by the United States Embassy to serve United States Government employees' dependents, however, it now has a much more diverse student body including children of the local and expatriate business and diplomatic communities. English is the primary medium of instruction. The school's website reports that it serves a population of about 1200 students from 57 countries.
AISB previously occupied two purpose-built campuses; however, has since moved to one main campus located in Nagykovácsi. Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 2 (lower elementary) were housed at the Buda Campus (on Kakukk út) in the Buda Hills. Grades 3 - 12 (upper elementary, middle and high school) shared the Nagykovácsi Campus located just 13 kilometers from the center of Budapest. Currently, the Nagykovácsi campus holds two buildings (PK-Grade 5, Grade 6-12) on a expanded site.
The school operates four divisions on one campus. The Primary-school building (PK-grade 5) has its own library, multi-purpose room and gym. The other building houses grades 6-12 in afacility built in 2000, complete with 54 classrooms, library, cafeteria, computer rooms, double-sized gymnasium, 25-meter indoor swimming pool, 350-seat theatre, performing and visual arts facilities, and playfield (these facilities are also shared with the Lower school).

Famous quotes containing the words school and/or american:
“Im not making light of prayers here, but of so-called school prayer, which bears as much resemblance to real spiritual experience as that freeze-dried astronaut food bears to a nice standing rib roast. From what I remember of praying in school, it was almost an insult to God, a rote exercise in moving your mouth while daydreaming or checking out the cutest boy in the seventh grade that was a far, far cry from soul-searching.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“The womens liberation movement at this point in history makes the American Communist Party of the 1930s look like a monolith.”
—Nora Ephron (b. 1941)
