International American School (IAS) of Warsaw

At the International American School of Warsaw, we have a rich history of providing top-notch education and opportunities to students. As the first private American school of the post-communist period (est. 1989), we have set the bar high for academic excellence and innovation in education. Our school is fully accredited by some of the most highly-regarded organizations in the world, including the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), Cognia (American Diploma), and the Polish Ministry of Education (MEN).

Our unique blend of International and American curricula serves both Polish and international families in Warsaw, and our dedicated faculty of American and International teachers works tirelessly to maintain our high academic standards. Utilizing the latest educational materials and methodologies, our faculty ensures that our students receive a well-rounded education that exceeds Polish and international standards.

In September 1994, IAS opened its permanent facility in the Ursynów District of Warsaw. The school complex, consisting of two buildings, offers a safe and supportive environment for learning. Class sizes are limited to 18 students, which allows for individualized attention and support for each student, and our 7 to 1 student-to-teacher ratio ensures that our students receive the individualized attention they deserve.

We are deeply grateful to the teachers who have helped build and shape the curriculum at IAS, and we are proud of our thriving alumni community. With high demand to join our community, enrollment is limited, but we encourage you to reach out to us for more information about our admission process and the opportunities we offer.
