Australian International School (AIS) has announced the appointment of Mr Andre Casson as the institution’s new Principal, effective immediately.  

Andre joins this position with over 20 years of teaching experience and 18 years of leadership experience at schools across Australia, China and Singapore.

The appointment follows a successful tenure as “Acting Principal” during which Andre’s vision and passion for the strategic development of AIS impressed the school board, leadership team & parents alike. 

Andre joined AIS in 2012 as Head of the Secondary School and was instrumental in executing significant transformative changes that have led to improved academic outcomes for Secondary School students at AIS.

“I am excited to take on this role and to continue to lead the school on the path of excellence set forth by Dr Nick Miller, our former Principal,” Andre says. “I believe strongly in the tenet of holistic education and I am committed to providing every student at AIS with an opportunity to express their talents.”

Andre will work closely with Neil Smith, Head of Elementary School and the AIS leadership team to refine and deliver the school’s strategic agenda for the next two years. He will also lead the search for his replacement as Head of the Secondary School.
