Director's Welcome


West campus

August 6, 2021

Welcome to the American International School in Egypt-West Campus website.  I am Dr. Randy Refsland, and I am the Director of AISE-West. We are a continually growing school, and we welcome new students and families to AISE-West. We began in 2009 with a couple of hundred students, and we are anticipating over 1700 students this fall. Our objective is to work with all of our stakeholders to continue to build a solid foundation of success for students and staff and continue to move AIS - West forward. We want to continue to provide the best possible education for all of our students in KG1 through Grade 12. We will continue to work closely with the ESOL Board, administration, staff, parents, and students to continue the tradition of excellence at AIS - West.

This past year has been the most challenging ever in the field of education, and this fall will without a doubt bring additional challenges. We are working hard every day to provide a place that will be safe for our students and staff and allow us to return to school at 100% capacity this fall. We are planning on re-starting extra-curriculars and other activities for students, and we are hopeful that conditions here in Egypt will allow that to happen. We value our students and staff and want to make the 2021-2022 school year a rewarding and safe one for all. 

I am excited to be in Egypt and AIS - West, and I enjoy working with the ESOL Board, our administrative team, staff, students, and parents here at AIS - West. I am truly honored to be in this position, and I can assure you that I will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of this school and all of its stakeholders. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or if you want additional information regarding our school. My contact information can be found on the website. 

Thank you for your interest in and continued support of AIS - West, Go Lynx!


Dr. Randy
