It is heartening to know that AF School , Upper Shillong has brought out a School Website. Co-curricular and Extra-curricular activities play a vital and a pivotal role in shaping the personality of students.

A dynamic curriculum is implemented daily by our dedicated and knowledgeable teachers and staff that are committed to lifelong learning, professionalism, observation, and purposeful teaching.
I believe building a strong foundation in early learning is critical to a successful future in education and training in early years builds a strong foundation for future citizens and leaders. Our goal at the school is to partner with families and parents of the students so as to build a conducive environment for the children to thrive and grow at the school as well as in life.
