If you walk our halls you will find that Addis International is a place of fun, friendship and mutual respect. Exceptional teachers bring a wealth of experience, both from living abroad and from graduate studies; they are important role models through their teaching, caring and commitment

At Addis International Academy, we believe that:

- All children can learn.
- All children deserve a quality education.
- Children are more than test scores.
- Children who struggle to achieve higher grades; doesn’t mean they are less intelligent. It simply means they have a different style and need of learning.
- Academic skills should not be the only skills taught to children. Social skills are equally as important. Children need to be equipped with the ability to know how to engage and socially intermingle once they are out there in the world post high school graduation.
- College is not where their future begins. They are and should be prepped for success throughout PreK-12!
- Children thrive when they believe they can accomplish anything.
- All children benefit from developmentally appropriate materials, practices, and strategies.
School is not just about children: it encompasses families, parents, community, stakeholders, society, the environment and the world.
- Direct instruction of students helps to increase student achievement.
