Who We Are

AMI International School (AMIIS) is a private, Christian school in Cobán, Guatemala.  We seek to deliver world-class education in an under-resourced region to prepare students for universities around the world. Following a successful dual language model, our school aims to equip the students to graduate being fully bilingual and literate in both English and Spanish. Additionally, our hope is that the students will also receive a solid biblical foundation through their time at AMIIS and will use their knowledge and faith in God to transform their communities

 We have incredibly dedicated students and parents (and an ever-growing student waitlist), and we are looking for equally dedicated elementary teachers for the 2024-2025 school year to join our team of professional educators. Start date would be July 2024.
