Monrovia Liberia
American International School of Monrovia


The American International School of Monrovia AISM, formerly known as the American Cooperative School, has a rich history on the continent that dates as far back as the 1960s. The school was formed as a partnership between the American Embassy and the Liberian Community. AISM has been a stable educational institution that has provided a safe and high achieving academic environment for students for generations. We continue to expand the school and build on this solid foundation.

Liberia has had its challenges with civil war and serious public health concerns, however, through it all, the country has maintained a resilience and a community spirit that endures. The American International School of Monrovia is a modern air-conditioned facility that, in the future, could once again enroll well over 600 students. Presently, there is ample classroom space for all of our students. In addition to the main school building, our facilities include a basketball court, gymnasium, and a soccer/baseball field. The school curriculum is American that utilizes AERO standards that are aligned with the Common Core. AISM is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools for Grades K-9 with plans to expand to K-12 in the upcoming year. AISM is synonymous with learning, legacy, and leading. We welcome you to work with us as we continue this tradition.
