The Jerusalem American International School is now enrolling students from PreK to 8th grade. 

Our students come from over 40 countries for a stimulating US standard-based program. Teachers at JAIS are devoted to nurturing each student and preparing them to thrive in all aspects of life.

JAIS offers a wide variety of enrichment programs, including maker space, coding, swimming, and digital citizenship. A new Jerusalem Studies program expands upon the diversity within our school and exposes students to the rich cultures that surround us.  Environmental Science Responsibility and Action is taught school-wide and is an inspiration for much of our community service initiatives. We welcome students with individual learning needs (academic / logistical / sensory / social / emotional) to apply to JAIS.

JAIS is located in the San Simon neighborhood in southwest Jerusalem. We are a branch campus of the Walworth Barbour American International School, which is located north of Tel Aviv in the town of Even Yehuda. Both campuses are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

We welcome all inquiries and strongly encourage on-site visits and informational interviews. Please contact us to schedule your visit by emailing today.
