The American Embassy School is an international school in New Delhi, India. The campus is spread over twelve acres, and it accommodates up to 34 faculty families on campus. The school, despite its large area, is continuously being expanded to accommodate additional students. The school accepts students from nursery to twelfth grade.
AES is unique, since it is an international school. All lessons, except for special language classes, are held in English. There are about 1500 students in the school, and although 35% of them are Americans, the rest of the students come from 53 different nationalities.[source?] The school's motto is "Enter to learn... Leave to serve."
The curriculum at AES follows the college preparatory program that's undertaken in American private schools. At high school, students have the opportunity to take the program of either International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) as well as a regular high school program.
