Chairman's Message:

The Asmara International Community School (AICS), delivers an international educational program beyond the limits of academic curriculum. It offers sound education in a wholesome setting. The School is second to none in the exciting possibilities it has supported by an extremely talented and experienced faculty.

Expectations at AICS are high, not only from our pupils but from our staff as well. Both recognize the value of a caring and motivational atmosphere and are aware of the need to work in partnership with parents for the continued success of the students as they are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

The education offered in the classroom, the playgrounds and throughout the campus in many ways encompasses all the vision and breadth of modern education.  Being a part of AICS is to truly witness exceptional performance.

I’m the UN appointed member to the board and I joined in October 2017. I have two daughters in AISC, in Kindergarten and in grade 4 and they enjoy very much attending the school. We moved to Asmara from Uganda and like our life in the beautiful city. I have education background, so for the past 10 years I’ve worked to improve quality of education in Malawi and Uganda. Currently I work for UNICEF as Chief of Education and Child Protection here in Eritrea.
