International American School (IAS) of Warsaw

Poland was established in 1989 as an elementary school based around an International and American curriculum, catering to the Polish and foreign communities residing in the Polish capital. It is fully accredited by the Polish Ministry of Education (MEN), AdvancED and the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).

IAS surpasses Polish and International curricular standards of proficiency in all core subject areas. Qualified American and other International teachers utilize the latest texts and multimedia materials to ensure that our excellent academic standards are maintained.

IAS opened its new permanent facility in the Ursynów District of Warsaw in September of 1994. The school complex consists of two buildings in close proximity. Class sizes are limited to eighteen, and the overall student-to-teacher ratio is 7 to 1. Consequently, we are able to ensure that each child receives individual attention. However, the student to teacher ratio also results in a limited availability of places, given the high demand of families to join our community.



We welcome students from all around the world
