Meet our Leadership


Welcome from the Head of School - Greg Hughes

Welcome to the American International School of Abuja.

As with all schools, we are pleased to showcase our strong academic curriculum, our world class facilities and the holistic nature of our educational program that helps each one of our students to respect and appreciate the world and their growing role within it.

Equally as important, we have gone to great lengths to convey the sense of community that exists within our amazing school. We all take pride in our achievements and for those of you looking to become a part of our family, I am sure that once you arrive you will be immersed in our school spirit and our commitment to becoming the best international school on the African continent.

We all deeply love AISA and I am sure that this will be evident as you continue your journey through the pages of this website.
