Welcome

Welcome To Yangon American International School

We are excited to be the first International Baccalaureate (IB) School with an authorized Primary Years Program (PYP) and we are a candidate school for the Middle Years Program (MYP) in Myanmar.  Our program is designed to meet the unique needs and learning styles to personalize each student’s learning experience for them to achieve their full potential.

Our curriculum integrates the best of International and American frameworks, providing a comprehensive and stimulating education for your child. Our focus on inquiry-based learning allows children to explore and discover the world around them, developing key skills and understanding of concepts in a fun and engaging way. In addition to academic excellence, we place a strong emphasis on social-emotional well-being. We understand that students need to feel safe, supported, and valued in order to learn and grow, and we work to create a positive and inclusive learning environment where students can thrive.

About Us

In August 2019, Asia Strategic Holdings welcomed the first classes at Yangon American International School. Offering an academically rigorous, international American education, Yangon American is centrally located on Yangon-Insein Road in a newly renovated state-of-the art campus ensuring children excel in all areas, from academics to sports or the performing arts.

We take great care to offer a truly experience for your child.

Every child is different, and his or her needs evolve as they grow. At Yangon American, we work hard to develop a strong bond with each child to ease their transitions and ensure they learn in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Our school was designed by professional educators who brought the very best practices and proven educational strategies of high performing schools from around the world and incorporated them into our program.

We also follow the International Baccalaureate (“IB”) framework, the gold standard in education. We are the only official International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) school in Myanmar and a candidate school for the Middle Years Program (MYP) in Myanmar. We are one of an elite group of elementary school programs worldwide that offer IB PYP high-level academics to all our students. As an IB World School, Yangon American is now part of a global community of schools committed to developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to negotiate their future successfully and make contributions resulting in a more harmonious and peaceful world.

Yangon American families know they can expect high qualified and inspiring teachers who work passionately to offer students a first-class educational experience. This is further enhanced by optimal class size, extensive resources, and high-quality facilities. Guided by our vision, we inspire our students to grow, learn, and succeed both in and out of the classroom. We ensure our students are reading, writing and performing math numeracy at grade level while developing their social, emotional, and physical growth. As our motto says, “Enter to learn and grow. Go forward to succeed!”

Come and experience for yourself why Yangon American is described by so many as the best school in Yangon and their school of choice. Not all international schools are the same. At Yangon American, you will experience the difference.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Sincerely,

Yangon American Team
