About International School Services

Excellence is a standard, an expectation, and a state of mind. It is the standard we seek in operating a school, an expectation we have of our staff and our students, and it is the state of mind by which we make decisions about programs, practices, and procedures. Decisions concerning the operation of the Dalian American International School (DAIS) will be guided by the principle of excellence and by what is in the best interest of the children.

We recognize that the choice of a school for any parent is one of the most significant decisions they will make in determining the future of their child. At ISS we respect the different needs of children and families, we recognize that DAIS will be one step on the journey of a child's education and development, and that successful education is a result of the child, the family, and the school working in concert to achieve clear and articulated outcomes.

We view DAIS as an experience for the whole family and encourage parents to actively participate in the school. We have prepared this document to provide families with information about the ISS educational philosophy and beliefs, and to help families become better acquainted with ISS.

What Parents are Saying

"DAIS is more than just a school.. we are a community. And I am so lucky to have my children growing up in such a loving, caring environment. The small classroom and warm environment at DAIS have provided my children with such a unique education... our family is grateful for the opportunity. My kid are excited every day they leave for school. The feel at home in the halls at DAIS and are having so much fun, they don't even realize they're learning!"
Jennifer (America)

"This is our fourth year at Dalian American International School. The teachers and administration at DAIS truly care, and do anything to help the students. We are seeing strong academics and small class sizes but learning here is also about building character. Our children are becoming well-rounded thinkers that see themselves as an important part of a bigger community."
Brianna (America)

"I have seen my children bloom educationally during the last two years while they have attended DAIS. The school has a focus on small class sizes, an excellent teaching staff and a friendly international environment which has created a positive learning atmosphere for my daughters. My kids look forward to school on a daily basis and I feel that says it all."
