DAIS Joins Nord Anglia Education

DAIS has joined Nord Anglia Education (NAE), which is a family of bilingual and international schools from all around the world.

We are pleased to announce an exciting new chapter for our students, colleagues and parents! 

The Dalian American International School (DAIS) has joined the Nord Anglia Education (NAE) family of schools, connecting us to students and colleagues in a total of 69 Nord Anglia schools around the world. 

This will be an exciting change for our school and will allow us to build on the great things we already do. As part of Nord Anglia’s global community, we will continue to be led by the same trusted leadership team and talented staff, now with access to more resources, expertise and opportunities to further enhance the education we offer our more than 700 students. 

NAE is China’s longest standing international education provider, and our school is joining NAE’s family of 17 NAE schools in China. 

We are looking forward to our students participating in Nord Anglia’s global programs, learning with other students around the world through unique experiences and curricula, including partnerships with some of the world’s leading organizations such as UNICEF, Juilliard and MIT. 

Our colleagues will also benefit from access to further resources, support and expertise so that we continue to bring the best of global educational practice to our school. Professional development opportunities are available to all colleagues through Nord Anglia University, and colleagues are eligible to enroll in an exclusive Master’s degree in International Education with King’s College London. 

Andrew Fitzmaurice, chief executive office of Nord Anglia Education, said: “DHBS and DAIS are an excellent fit with our organization as we share the same education philosophy of being ambitious for our students so they can be academically, personally and socially successful.” 

Lisa Liang, CEO of DHBS and DAIS, said the move is an exciting new chapter: “Being part of the Nord Anglia family means an enhanced offering for our students. Together with Nord Anglia, we will continue to build on our educational experience by connecting our students and staff to a truly global community and world-leading partnerships. This is truly an exciting new chapter for our school.” 

Nord Anglia is committed to supporting our school’s continued development and success. We are looking forward to working with them to further strengthen our position as a world-class school.
