Anglo-American School of Moscow
The Anglo-American School of Moscow is an independent, coeducational day school, which offers an educational program from First Steps (3-year-olds) through grade 12. The School was founded in 1949. The school year is comprised of 4 quarters. The first day of school was August 23 and the last day of the school year is June 15. During the year students have a 1-week fall break (October), 3-week holiday break (December/January), a long week-end (February), and a one-week spring break (April).

Organization: The Anglo-American School is chartered by the U.S., British, and Canadian Embassies in Moscow through the aegis of a School Board. The Director of the School, a U.S. educator, the deputy director and the principals of the Elementary School (FS-grade 5), the Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12) manage the day-to-day operation of the School.

Curriculum: Students follow an international curriculum, which ensures a solid grounding in English/Language Arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Russian, French or Spanish, art, music, computer skills and physical education are also included. The high school provides a college-preparatory program leading to a High School Diploma that can be supplemented with International Baccalaureate certificates or a full IB Diploma. Students completing the full IB program typically receive priority placement at universities and are offered first-year credit for their higher-level courses. The elementary school is implementing the IBO Primary Years Program. Students with mild disabilities or special needs are supported through Optimal Match services. The School is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the Council of International Schools and the International Baccalaureate Organization.

Faculty: In the 2005-2006 school year, the faculty consists of approximately 135 qualified and experienced teachers.

Enrollment: As of September 15, 2005, the international student body of 1,225 students represented more than 68 countries.

Facilities: A purpose-built campus, located between a forest and a canal, was opened in August 2000. Instruction is extended through access to the Internet throughout the School. Facilities include 4 computer laboratories, 8 science laboratories, 5 art rooms, 6 music rooms, 2 black box theaters, an extensive library, 3 large gymnasia, 3 playing fields and tennis courts, 3 dining rooms (one equipped with a stage), an aerobics/dance studio, 2 exercise rooms and an asphalt play space where ice rinks are set up in the winter. Stage II of the new school construction (multi-purpose auditorium/theater for 550 people and the swimming pool) is under way and aimed for completion by August 2006.

Finances: In the 2005-2006 school year, annual tuition rates are as follows: FS-PK: $11,300; Kdg.-grade 5: $13,700; grades 6-8: $15,300; grades 9-10: $16,300; and grades 11-12: $17,500. The School also charges a $6,000 annual seat fee to service the financial costs of the construction of the new campus. These fees include all books and materials. Supplies are also included for FS through grade 5. (All fees are quoted in U.S. dollars.)
