Elementary School

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”

― Aristotle

It is an honour and pleasure to be involved in Yangon Academy International School.

Our school is a centre of learning and we expect each student to become effective communicators, creative and critical thinkers, healthy individuals, collaborative team players, responsible global citizens and lovers of learning in their formative years at YAIS.

We provide an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas where our students can grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Our educators help our students to meet their full potential in these areas.

Our curriculum is based on the America’s standards and teaching practices, both are dynamic and challenging as we prepare each student for success today and point them toward being ready to excel at secondary school and university level.

We provide a variety of after school extra-curricular activities such as: student government, art, drama, story, crafts, STEM and board games. These activities allow students to explore an area of interest beyond the classroom.

Our ethos is one of maintaining the Myanmar heart while preparing students to be global ambassadors.

Our journey with our parents is a partnership and we welcome parental involvement in our school through interaction, volunteering, presentations and school programs.

It is my pleasure to serve the students, parents and teachers at Yangon Academy International School. My door is always open should you like to come in for a chat over a cup of coffee or tea. I’m at your service.

Welcome to Yangon Academy International School.
