SAS teachers come from across the world and bring unique educational, professional and cultural experiences to the classroom. There are 375 full-time faculty and over 75 percent have earned master’s degrees or PhD’s. The school invests heavily in professional development and continually sends teachers across the globe to discover innovative ideas and best practices from influential educational institutions.

The curriculum at SAS is similar to that of US college preparatory schools. The school’s commitment to providing an international perspective is reflected in the curriculum, extensive service opportunities, and extra-curricular activities.

The campus includes three distinct divisions: elementary school (preschool through grade five), middle school (grades six through eight) and high school (grades nine through twelve). A separate and purpose built early childhood center (ECC) provides a special learning environment for preschool and pre-kindergarten (age three and four) students.
