About Us

The American International School of Transylvania is a non-profit association founded by a group of creative and hardworking people, passionate about education. Our main goal is to invest in people and to promote high-quality international education in English at all levels.

Since its founding, the American International School of Transylvania has organized a series of events designed to help achieve its goal and is working hard to implement educational activities for children with outstanding potential to become prominent citizens and leaders. With the right education and support from their families, these children will be able to pursue any career they desire and excel in their respective domains.

Our vision is to depict the open gate towards the world, the cradle in which well-informed students will be trained in an international mind-set and the personalities of future leaders will be shaped.

Where We Are

Baia Mare is the residence of Maramureș County, Romania. It is a medium-sized city, located in the northwestern part of the country, one hour away from Hungary in the west and Ukraine in the north. The city has a population of about 140,000 inhabitants and is proud to host diverse ethnic and religious minorities.

Located in a mountainous region and surrounded by a unique view, the small villages around Baia Mare offer tourists an unforgettable ambiance, given that in Maramureș the traditions are preserved by the people from rural areas in the same fashion they were kept by their ancestors. In this region there are many cultural attractions such as: wooden gates and churches, the Merry Cemetery from Săpânța, Bârsana Monastery, the Memorial Museum of the victims of communism in Sighetu Marmației and many others.

Undoubtedly, the most valuable asset of this area are its people. A former mining center, the city of Baia Mare reinvented itself after the mines were closed and became one of the most successful development areas in the country. The historical, artistic, cultural and tourist legacy, combined with a prosperous business environment, offers the inhabitants of the area a safe and dynamic living environment.

By investing in people and promoting high quality educational services within the community, we intend to contribute to the development of this haven.

What We Do

At present, our activities consist of high-quality, extracurricular educational activities through which we intend to promote high standards in education and encourage cultural exchanges.

The International School of Transylvania aims to contribute to the advancement of an international way of thinking and to the integration of the Romanian culture in the international context, as well as to the broadcasting of foreign cultures and civilizations in the Romanian society. We also focus on the development of direct socio-cultural relations and connections between people, organizations and institutions in Romania and abroad.

We support educational and cultural initiatives among young people and teachers – publications, festivals, symposia, as well as cultural-scientific, domestic and international activities.

In 2011, we initiated a local campaign, which especially targets but is not limited to, the children from our community. Therefore, we organized a series of activities during Christmas and during the summer in order to get in touch with the children in the area who have the potential to become global values. Our goal is to assist them in their progress to become the leaders of tomorrow.
