Why Work at AES?

Where both seasoned and newer educators come together to build community, to engage as teachers and learners, and to find adventure.

We know a beautiful and peaceful landscape isn't the first thing people think of when they seriously consider a move to New Delhi, but you might be surprised.

The AES campus is a serene hub within the incredible bustling New Delhi. You will find that the calm of campus and the beautiful chaos of Delhi work in symphony—offering everyday opportunities to relish in the contrasts. There is a palpable play of creativity, collegiality, and community both on campus and in the school's neighborhood. 

Our Shared Vision

At AES, we pride ourselves as a school characterized by its culture of belonging, its mission to promote the joyful pursuit of excellence in all that we do, and its commitment to service learning. If you think this sounds like a place you'd want to work, we want to hear from you!

”My plan was to come to AES for three years. That turned into five, and it has now been over 10 years. Since my first interview with the leadership, I have felt warmth and that I belong to a community. What’s more, I have experienced phenomenal growth here. Whether it’s trying out new technology in my classroom or taking on a departmental leadership position, the School has supported me every step of the way. Both of my children studied at AES and didn’t let us leave, either! This School becomes your second home.”
