The American International School of Niamey (AISN), established in 1982, is an independent, coeducational day school offering an educational program from prekindergarten through grade 9. A correspondence study program for grade 12, in conjunction with the University of Nebraska Independent Study High School Center, is also currently offered.
The curriculum is similar to that of most U.S. public schools. Instruction is in English, and all grades K-11 receive French language instruction. In addition to language arts, reading, math, science, and social studies, the curriculum includes music, art, and physical education. The School has a commitment to teaching and learning with technology and has integrated the use of computers into the educational program. AISN has a strong community based education program. Students are involved in service-learning projects and participate in activities that enhance the curriculum and increase their knowledge of the host-country. Standardized achievement tests are administered annually. AISN is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the Association of International Schools in Africa.
