David King

High School Principal 

David have been working in the education field for 12 years, During that time, he have worked at The International School of Kabul (2012-2015),  United Preparatory Academy Columbus (2015-2016), and AIS Egypt (2016-Present). David taught several grades throughout his career in education. Additionally, he have been an Elementary grade-level team leader, Middle School Assistant Principal, and High School Assistant Principal. In 2019, David completed his Master's in Education with a focus on International School Leadership.  


David says that since his start at AIS Egypt back in 2016, he have had the privilege of working in Primary school, Middle School, and High School. The diversity of his my experience at AIS has led to a rich understanding of our students and our school. Experiences such as developing third graders' love for reading and writing, managing the enthusiasm and excitement of a classroom of 25 6th graders, and coming alongside teachers as we support high school students in these crucial years have all impacted me and my understanding of the AIS student and teacher experience.
