The Mission of Addis International School is to create the best learning environment that is safe, caring, with great value to diversity and filled with encouragement so students will excel to the best of their abilities. We actively involve parents and the community so students get the support they need. Students will be taught to communicate effectively through the mastery of problem solving, critical thinking, life management, and communication skills. Students are provided with opportunities to grow emotionally, socially and psychically to build character and self-esteem in order to recognize and appreciate their individual differences. Our ultimate goal to help students believe they can accomplish anything they set their minds to starting from academic excellence.
