AFNORTH International ES Mission Statement

The mission of AFNORTH International School is to provide an education commensurate with the national requirements of its four founding nations - Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Our curriculum takes the highest educational standards from each of these nations and sets these as the standard to which our students should work towards and achieve.

We shall enrich this educational experience through our school's internationally integrated organization, with programs making use of the European setting, and the multicultural nature of our student body. This will be in conjunction with the support of our military community.
