ACS International Schools enrol a total over 2,500 students aged between 2 and 18, from over 60 countries, speaking 30 languages, at three London area campuses in England. Based on international and American research, principles, and educational practices, the schools are committed to maintaining the highest standards of scholarship and citizenship.
All ACS campuses are International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools, offering the IB Diploma. In addition, ACS Egham International School is one of only four schools in the UK to also offer the IB Primary Years Programme (3-11), and the IB Middle Years Programme (11-16).
All ACS campuses offer a traditional American High School Diploma, with ACS Cobham, and ACS Hillingdon also teaching US Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
In 2009/10 our combined IB Diploma pass rate of 95% was well above the international average of 78.6%, and our average IB Diploma score of 33 points surpassing the international average of 29.5. These results continue to place us among the highest achieving independent schools in the UK.
