Our Mission and Vision

Dalian American International School provides challenging, collaborative and responsive experiences that engage learners in developing intellect, character, and health. At DAIS, every learner achieves personal excellence and contributes to the global community.

Dalian American International School provides programs that bridge the educational experiences of both international and Chinese national students. We ensure an attractive, well-resourced, and up-to-date educational facility.

Our learning environment fosters academic excellence and enhances students’ personal development. We offer opportunities for students to collaborate, thereby developing an appreciation for diverse points of view and respect for each other as unique individuals. Our program expands student horizons and fosters in each student a better understanding of world cultures and citizenship.

Our students and graduates see themselves as global citizens who grow through challenges and are stewards of the world’s resources. They are critical thinkers who have a lifelong intrinsic motivation for learning and are prepared to enter high quality educational institutions throughout the world. Most importantly, their community recognizes them as compassionate, ethical, and inspirational.

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!"

"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."
