School address

AISV is conveniently located in Vilnius just outside the historic Old Town on a hill (Subačiaus str. 41) that provides sweeping views of the old town. The school is housed in a fully renovated school building with 25 classrooms, a computer laboratory, a library, and a student lounge. AISV has just added a brand new gym, which meets FIBA requirements, an outside soccer pitch, a big canteen, two playgrounds, and a spaciuos parking lot. The playgrounds and soccer field are used for recess, after-school activities and physical education classes. We are excited for our students to have the ability to use a modern facility for all their academic, athletic, social and emotional needs.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Masters of Arts in French Literature.  I worked in the US in Houston, Nashville and Boston in independent schools as a teacher of French Literature for 14 years.  I have been an administrator in Houston, Morocco and now at AISV in Vilnius.  I strongly believe that everything we do in school must answer the simple question: "How does this support our students' learning?" We are here doing one of the most beautiful jobs in the world to ensure that our students are inquirers, internationally-minded and critical thinkers. I enjoy making music, watching tv series and movies and reading about history. My family and I love Vilnius. It is a safe, beautiful city that provides lots of things to do both outdors and indors as well as cultural events.
Stephane Ruz,
International education has always been my passion and career. With a Bachelor's degree in English and secondary education, I taught English language and literature to middle and high school students in the US, Peru, and Belgium. After earning a Master's in School Administration and Supervision and a certificate in International School Leadership, I've served in leadership roles in schools in Guatemala, Peru, Morocco and now, Lithuania. My interest and experience are in the design and implementation of an educational program that inspires teachers and students to be active learners and committed, collaborative members of a global community. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and reading. For balance, strength, and flexibility - physical, mental, and emotional-  I practice yoga. Vilnius is charming - a city with beautiful architecture and parks, interesting history, and rich culture.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to explore all that Vilnius has to offer and this corner of the world.

Robin MacArthur,
Lower School Principal

Education: BA in TESOL (Goshen College), MA in Educational Psychology (Ball State University). Growing up internationally in West Africa and Germany developed my appreciation for other cultures and for exploring the world. That inspired me to teach internationally, and I have had the privilege of teaching in Honduras, Egypt, and now Lithuania. My passions extend beyond the classroom as I have also coached football and look for every opportunity to play it, too. My favorite football club is Chelsea, so you can always expect to see my Chelsea poster hanging proudly in my room!

With my Masters in Arts & Design and after working for ten years as a graphic designer for major publicity agencies in Paris, I moved with my family to Cambodia and Singapore. Now we are delighted to start a new journey in the inspirational baroque pearl of the Baltic States, Vilnius. With my creative flair and my French touch, I develop innovative concepts to promote school events with high visual impact. I am thrilled to make AISV proud of our vibrant community through appealing communication campaigns for Theatre Shows, Sports Competitions, Arts Exhibitions, and more… Crazy about the 50's & 60's in Design, Cinema, and Arts.

Laura Mickuvienė,
Human Resources Manager

I was born in France but spent most of my life in the US.  I have received my Bachelor's in Management from the University of Houston as well as a Master's in Business Administration (MBA). I worked in the private sector in accounting and marketing until 2009 when I started teaching in Houston IB Economics. In 2012, I started working as a college counselor and earned a certification from UCLA.  I love teaching and knowing that I can help young people become global and responsible citizens and plan their future. I love to travel and visit new places and go on adventures, spending time with my family, watching movies, reading a book, and learning. I am currently studying for a Master in School Counseling through an online program in the US so that takes a lot of my time and I should be done next year hopefully. I love living in Vilnius!  Walking around, I am always astonished by the beautiful architecture of Old Town and its charm. 

Claire Ruz,
College Counselor / IB Economics Teacher
In my 18th year of teaching and 8th as an IBDP Coordinator, I hold a Master’s degree in Secondary Education 6-12 with an emphasis in Social Studies, as well as a Master’s degree in Special Education K-12.

My classrooms prioritize a safe environment that promotes trust and openness. My approach revolves around promoting empathy by exploring multiple perspectives and practicing skills that hone critical and creative thinking. My goal is to prepare students for challenges beyond the academic world.

Outside of the classroom, my love for basketball has been a great fit here in Lithuania, as I strive to build a cohesive, effective high school boys team. I share amazing adventures with my wife Cyrene, our son Henry, and our rescue dog, Auggie. We are all thrilled to be in our second year as part of the AISV community and living in this beautiful city of Vilnius.
