Founded in 1982, today the American School has over 1,000 students on a sprawling campus in Bryanston which caters for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. A second campus in Pretoria caters for Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8. The school's facilities include science laboratories, computer laboratories, libraries, a gym, a swimming pool, sport-specific fields and courts, a fine arts centre and a cafeteria. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities on offer.

What the school says

“At AISJ, we are committed to providing strong academic support for our high school students. Our ongoing professional development assists teachers to differentiate their instruction and enables them to work effectively with a range of student learning styles and needs. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, with 107 nationalities represented in our student body. We are truly an international school.”


In elementary, middle and high school, students follow a hybrid curriculum based on American and international best practices. Grade 11 and 12 students study toward either the American High School Diploma or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, which is internationally recognised.


The Johannesburg campus of the school is located in Bryanston, near Sandton. There is a second, smaller campus in the nearby city of Pretoria.


For the 2023/2024 academic year, annual fees range from ZAR 360,486 for Pre-Kindergarten to ZAR 647,064 for Grades 11 and 12. There is also a non-refundable capital fee of ZAR 198 450 (USD 11,025) for new students.

From the school director

“I am very fortunate to inherit the leadership of a school founded over 30 years ago in the best traditions of American education but a school that is also truly international in practice and demographics. I am also fortunate to lead a highly committed staff of local and international teachers, administrators, and support staff who make the school such a warm and welcoming environment for students and parents. The teachers – many recruited from around the world – add to the diverse richness of what really makes the school and South Africa such an exciting place.” 

– Dr Andy Page-Smith, School Director
