The American Embassy School is located in the heart of the diplomatic community of New Delhi. The School campus is spread over twelve acres. The buildings have been designed to blend into a small rocky hill which lends a friendly, informal atmosphere to the school. Housing facilities accommodate 34 faculty families on campus. While new elementary and middle school facilities were completed in 1999, the high school is currently being expanded to accommodate additional students.
AES has a strong international character. Although about 35 per cent of our 1250 students in nursery to twelfth grade are Americans, the majority of our students represent some 53 nationalities. Children of embassy personnel, world organizations, non-governmental organization officials and international business people attend AES. We prize the diversity of cultures represented in our student body.
The school is governed by a seven member Board of Governors, elected by the parents and the faculty for a two year term. In addition to the seven elected members, the American Ambassador appoints two non-voting members to the Board. Teacher, student and parent representatives also attend Board of Governors meetings.
The American Embassy School of New Delhi does not discriminate among its students on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
