The Asmara International Community School (AICS) in Asmara, Eritrea, is an independent, coeducational day school which offers an educational program to children from prekindergarten (age 3) through grade 12. The school was founded in 1994 to serve the needs of the international community and other students seeking English-language education.[1]

Grades 7 and 8 use the International Middle Years curriculum. Starting in Grade 7, the Secondary School is departmentalized by core subject: English, mathematics, science, and social studies.
