Peter Lee Assumes Directorship at The American International School of Muscat

The American International School of Muscat (TAISM) is pleased to announce that Peter Lee has officially assumed the role of Director as of July 1, 2024. Mr. Lee steps into this leadership role following the departure of Kevin Schafer from the directorship at the end of the 2023-24 school year.
Peter Lee brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having been a pivotal part of the TAISM community since 2006. Previously serving as the Middle School Principal, he has been instrumental in fostering a school climate that emphasizes community and wellness. His commitment to creating an inclusive environment is evident in his daily interactions with students, staff, and parents, reinforcing a culture of belonging and mutual respect.
In 2022, Peter was honored as one of only two international school educators to receive the prestigious National Distinguished Principals Award from the U.S.-based National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP). This accolade was awarded at a ceremony in Washington DC, recognizing his outstanding leadership and contribution to education at the international level.
Educated at Gustavus Adolphus College with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Peter also holds a Master’s in Education from St. Mary’s University and an Ed.S. in Education Leadership from Capella University. His leadership is marked by a dedication to excellence and a deep commitment to the educational and personal development of every student.
