Meet The Director

Here at AISC, our mission is to develop intellectually audacious, socially responsible citizens of the world. On our small, quaint island of green on the fringes of bustling Conakry, the teachers, staff and parents have set out as a village to make our students feel safe, happy, fully engaged, and responsible for their learning.  We celebrate our students and work together to create a well-rounded learning environment on our campus.  Through their experiences, we envision that students will use their voices to serve as lifelong advocates for Guinea and Africa.

We are proud to be the only accredited English-medium school in Guinea, and offer an American-style education based on the AERO Standards in a decidedly international context. From Kindergarten through Grade 12, early childhood on up to a U.S. high school diploma, we engage with children and their families to provide a solid education that develops critical thinking, relationship building skills, imagination, and compassion.

Mark Dempsey, The Director

New to Conakry myself, but not a stranger to the African continent, my wife Winnehl and five-year-old son Maxton have joined me on this quest. We are truly inspired and excited to be a part of the AISC school community. Thanks to the many staff members, parents and students who have welcomed us with open arms.

If you find yourself in the Nongo area, please pay us a visit to see first-hand the work that goes into preparing our students to actively play a role in shaping the future.
