Welcome Message form the Principals

The world we live in is constantly changing, and the jobs available today are not the jobs of 20 years ago and will not be the jobs available in another 20 years from now. Education is a life-long process that doesn't begin or end in the classroom but encompasses all areas of life.

Our goal at American Pacific International School is for our students to become life-long learners so that when they graduate, they will have the opportunities, options, and skills they need to pursue and succeed in their education, careers, and future lives. We do this by encouraging and helping our students build their knowledge, develop their skills and deepen their understanding so that they are ready to overcome the challenges of this modern, ever-changing world. We aim to provide a supportive, challenging, and interactive learner-centered environment that promotes critical and creative thinking, inquiry, resilience, adaptability, independence and interdependence, and international mindedness. All of which are skills necessary for success in this modern-changing world. When students can begin asking their questions and finding their answers, they are prepared to succeed in education and their future careers as leaders in Cambodia and globally.

Our classes are led by teachers from native English-speaking countries, with our younger classes are aided by Cambodian Learning Assistants. Our teachers use the latest methodologies in education with an emphasis on inquiry and project-based learning to improve critical and creative thinking. We also focus on building respectful relationships, self-reliance, and creativity. Our classes also combine into more enormous groups to work on projects and tasks, thus broadening their opportunity to work together with other students and interact with other teachers. APIS is accredited through the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MOEYS) to provide the national curriculum and exams. We also use the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and Cambridge Secondary Curriculum to meet our students' needs and increase their learning opportunities. Please feel free to stop by to look at our facilities, talk to our staff, and ask any questions you have. We would love to see you.

At American Pacific International School, we strive to deliver an education that truly encompasses the whole child – academically, socially and personally.

Our curriculum teaches students the skills and knowledge that are necessary to advance in today’s world, such as communicative language abilities, science and ICT. Beyond these core subjects, our school integrates character building through a focus on personal development. We aim to instill all of our learners with the 8 Personal Goals of the International Primary and International Early Years Curriculum by building these into our daily teaching practice. These goals include adaptability, communication, and resilience. As a result, when students leave our school, they are fully prepared to achieve success in the next stage of their lives.

Our teachers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and all share a passion for teaching and youth development. A welcoming, safe and learner-centered environment is at the center of our classrooms so students can feel at ease while learning and growing.
