Overview

Established in 1947, the American Overseas School of Rome (AOSR) has a long tradition of providing a rigorous and well-rounded American international education to Pre-K through Grade 12 students. AOSR is home to an international student body of around 600 students with approximately one third from the United States, one third from Italy, and the remaining third from 50 different countries.AOSR students benefit from: a diverse selection of challenging coursework, including the two rigorous IB (International Baccalaureate) and AP (Advanced Placement) programs; he personal attention we provide in a small classroom setting; the unparalleled commitment of our highly qualified faculty, all passionate about their teaching, and engaged in ensuring that all students achieve their full potential; our multicultural community, one of AOSR’s greatest assets in building an uncommon and uniquely enriching learning environment; our dedication to athletics, fine and performing arts and other extra curricular activities; our ability to take full advantage of the wealth of art, history, and culture available to us in Rome and Italy as a basis for experiential learning. The success of our alumni and the deep, lifelong connection they feel to the school speaks to the experience that students have at AOSR. The American Overseas School of Rome is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and, thanks to its premier academic program, is the first international school to be awarded MSA's prestigious International Credential. AOSR is a member of RISA (Rome International Schools Association), CIS (Council of International Schools) and ECIS.

Governance

The Board of Trustees is responsible for appointing the Head of School, strategic planning, and approving the annual budget. The objective of the AOSR Board of Trustees is to advance the school's mission by selecting, evaluating and supporting the Head of School, planning strategically for the school's long term well-being and sustainability as an institution and securing the resources necessary to operate and perpetuate the school. Abstaining from any engagement in day-to-day school operations, the AOSR Board, like other private, independent, and international school governing boards, delegates management to its only employee, the Head of School, who is the Executive Officer for the Board and responsible for implementing Board policies and, in turn, for the school's curriculum, personnel and programs. The Board adheres to standards of good practice in governance established by the school's accreditors and other international organizations such as ECIS, AAIE, and NAIS in how it goes about its work. This includes exercising fiduciary oversight of institutional performance. All trustees are skilled and recognized specialists in fields identified as necessary for the sustainability of the school. They serve as volunteers without compensation in any form. The AOSR Board of Trustees currently consists of 15 voting members plus the Head of School who is a non-voting member. Twelve trustees are elected to a three-year term and may serve at any given time for a maximum of two consecutive terms. Up to six trustees may be appointed to the Board annually. The Board of Trustees meets approximately six times per year. Faculty representatives are invited to attend open sessions.
