AISS Foundation
The American International School System Foundation - Building Bridges and Strong Minds

The Foundation Has a Goal of Raising $20k for Scholarships

The Foundation aims to double the annual AISS scholarship award level over the next two years. 87% of students attending the American International School System in Pakistan are on scholarship.

These scholarships would not be possible without all of the help and support of the Foundation.

The core of our teaching is to create well-rounded citizens by replacing ignorance with knowledge and building cultural bridges with the United States that develop hope, tolerance and understanding.

By providing a world-class education, The American International School System Foundation is helping Pakistan become more prosperous, secure and democratic.

The Scholarship Program of the Foundation is funded entirely with donations and we ask you to join us in our cause to fight illiteracy and help us bring hope and happiness to the children of Pakistan.

The School Year Comes To An End…

Students gather on the front lawn of the final day of classes.

Today, students and staff said their goodbyes as the school year comes to an end, but their farewells will just be for a few months during summer vacation.

We would like to specially thank our Foundation’s supporters for allowing us the opportunity to
educate and reach children in Pakistan.

This year has been extremely successful. We’ve worked hard to increase our students’ proficiency levels, the amount of parental involvement activities we offer, and the availability of technology in each classroom.

Our plans for the upcoming school year include expanding to the eighth grade and developing programs that reach even deeper into the local community.

We wish everyone a happy and safe summer. And, we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

Foundation Raised Over $9,000 for Library

The right to think is the beginning of freedom. And as such, our school’s library is the hub of the American International School System’s mission of training independent thinkers who are able to stand up against violence and extremism.

And at our school in Lahore, we outgrew our library’s current space. Check-outs and requests for materials increases each passing day. The library is a resource center open to teachers, students and families as well as the whole community.

Over a two-week period, the Foundation successfully raised $9,780 to expand our school library.

This funding will provide for increased square footage of the library, chairs and tables for study, new shelving and of course more books.

Thank you so much for everyone’s help!

The Scholastic Book Fair Carnival came to Lahore!

Hundreds of families delighted yesterday in an exciting atmosphere of great books, thrilling stories, and fun at the American International School System in Lahore, Pakistan. Readers of all ages walked away with the grandest prize of all: a lifelong love of reading!

Literacy levels in Pakistan are today among the lowest in South Asia, with only Bangladesh and Nepal lagging slightly behind. The national literacy rate is 54 percent out of which 66.25 percent of men and 41.75 of women are literate. The impact this has on lives is profound.

Students Visit 2,000 Year Old Fort‎

Middle School students of the American International School System traveled to Lahore Fort and the National Tower today to learn about Pakistani history and architecture.

No one knows exactly when Lahore Fort was built but it was first mentioned around 1021 AD when Mahmud of Ghazna conquered it. The Royal Fort was constructed around 1566 A.D. by the Mughal Emperor, Akbar the Great. Akbar demolished the old mud fort and constructed most of the modern Fort, as we see it today, on the old foundations.

The Minar-e-Pakistan is a marble tower built in commemoration of the Pakistan Resolution and reaches 72 meters above the ground.
