The Office of Overseas Schools is pleased to announce the addition of five new assisted schools to our roster of schools for 2020-2021. These schools will serve American families in Douala, Cameroon; Hyderabad, India; London, United Kingdom; and Stuttgart, Germany.
These five schools join an elite group of 194 schools which are non-profit, non-religious, U.S. accredited, independent, private, co-ed establishments at posts across the world. Each post generally has only one assisted school, which are considered the gold standard in American education overseas.
