The Anglo-American School in Sofia began the new school year with a new and "green" high school wing which increased its capacity with 100 students.

Ambassadors and diplomats from the United States, the UK, the Netherlands, Turkey, Japan, South Africa and many more attended the inauguration of the new wing on 16 September.

The AAS management struggles to make school as "green" as possible, using photovoltaic panels and a new water supply system which saves up to 75 percent of the water used in the school. In 2012, the policy received international recognition with the golden LEED EBOM certificate presented to the AAS by the US Green Building Council.

The new wing meets these standards with its "green" roof and ecological design.

Established in 1967, the Anglo-American School in Sofia is internationally certified institution providing top level education up to 500 students. Children from 45 nationalities are attending the school, 70 percent of them are non-Bulgarians. The AAS also provides free scholarship for gifted Bulgarians students.

The results of the AAS students are astonishing. All of them manage to obtain the International Baccalaureate Diploma at the end of their education and to continue in prestigious high schools, including Harvard and Cambridge.
