Welcome to the American International School of Lesotho. We are living in interesting times with education as well as the world changes we see thanks to the Corona virus. This is my 5th year in AISL and we are thriving both academically and with our students.

At AISL we have a great small school community feel where students from over 20 different nations mix together and learning from each other. While we have some distancing protocols in place, it is good to see students on the soccer field playing together with so much energy. We all look forward to when our grades can mix and students can interact further with other students from other schools.

Our school is small and diverse in its student and teaching population. We have students from all over the world and our teaching staff are similarly from different parts of the globe.

With small classes, we are able to focus on the teaching of our students. As you can see from our AISL Promise, we focus on the individual needs of each child and also focus on student becoming more worldly and positive citizens in an ever challenging and changing world.

We are learning to embrace the 21st Century skills for learning that focus on 12 different areas that build a strong person to help make a better world for us all. These areas are:

  • critical thinking
  • creativity
  • collaboration
  • communication
  • information literacy
  • media literacy
  • technology literacy
  • flexibility
  • leadership
  • initiative
  • productivity
  • social skills

The Kingdom of Lesotho is a beautiful mountain region where the rich history of culture and tradition shows. The people of Lesotho are hospitable and very welcoming. If you are considering moving to Lesotho, you will love the peaceful lifestyle.
