American International School of N'Djamena

The American International School of N’Djamena (AISN) is a small international school in the Chadian capital, N'Djamena. It is an independent, coeducational day school which offers an American-style educational program from prekindergarten through grade 8. The school is a non-profit association, governed by a six-member School Board composed of four AISN parents elected by the association, and two representatives of the U.S. Embassy.

At the beginning of the 2004-2005 school year, enrollment was 35, with 7 full time and 3 part time professional staff members.

Curriculum

The curriculum is that of U.S. academic Pre-K – 8 schools. AISN graduates are prepared for further study at U.S. or other American-style international college preparatory schools. Instruction is offered primarily in English. A dual French program is also offered, which serves the needs of "Native French Speaking" (NFS) students and "French as a Foreign Language" (FSL) students separately. The School is currently (as of 2004) in its period of candidacy for accreditation with the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Facilities

The School is located in the "Esso" neighborhood of N’Djamena. In addition to seven classrooms and two administrative offices, there is a variety of outdoor sports equipment (including badminton and volleyball nets and equipment, a basketball court, soccer goal, tetherball set and more), a playground with 2 jungle gyms, a 2,000-volume library and a snack-bar/recreation room. All indoor facilities are air conditioned.

School income derives primarily from tuition and related fees. Annual tuition rates are as follows: PK.: $4,000; Kdg.–grade 3: $8,000; grades 4– 8: $10,000. In addition, there is a once-only capital levy.
