Testimonials From Our Participants:
The AAIE Institute has connected me to a network of colleagues from some of the best international schools around the world. I have found the course material to be extremely valuable and has provided me with specific strategies that I have used to help move me towards positive and effective school leadership. I am most appreciative of the deeper understanding of my own potential and broader vision of the international school community that I have developed from my participation in the Institute.

I was pleased to be a student in the Governance course with highly qualified heads of schools throughout the world. The knowledge and experience gained was invaluable in my first head of school position. The instructors were very helpful, and the course included meaningful assignments and assessments that were practical and very useful in our profession. My new Board appreciated the knowledge I gained through the course, and our Governance committee requested an exchange of information from the course to improve their performance.

When I spoke to my head of school about my desire to advance professionally, he immediately recommended the AAIE Institute. I am an assistant principal with plenty of school experience and a master’s degree, but I have learned pertinent and dynamic information about being a school leader today. The readings, case studies, and presentations are interesting. The instructors are approachable and knowledgeable. Finally, my colleagues, through our shared coursework and online forums, bring great experiences and points of view to the table. My course experiences have been very practical and useful.

This Institute has been an invaluable tool for me as a beginning international school administrator! It has given me a chance to not only professionally connect with colleagues around the world in other schools, but also to share advice and experiences as we grow in our own leadership roles. The coursework itself is extremely relevant, and has sparked many new initiatives and professional conversations between myself and the other administrators at my current school. I highly recommend this course to any administrators working in – or hoping to work in – international schools.
