In August 1980, one year into the country’s return to democracy, AISL opened its doors as a custom built school making the shift from a small community school to a full-fledged educational institution. It began as a two-story building, designed so that expansion was possible. It was built for 450 students, with science and photo labs and air-conditioned classrooms. But the school’s ambitions did not end there. The Tacoma district administrators established a 501C3 non-profit association registered in Delaware. They approached American corporations whose employees had children at AISL about making contributions to the foundation. The support from US companies contributed over 3 million dollars. Those funds built the auditorium and swimming pool complex, and used to support Nigerian staff to visit Tacoma. Also on a foundation-supported grant, Wole Soyinka, the Nobel Laureate, worked with high school students in Tacoma district. In 1990, Bruce Onobrakpeya did an artist in residence stint at a Tacoma high school. He held an exhibition of his work that attracted people from across the northwest of the United States. During the 1980’s the school gradually grew, opening two streams of classes from kindergarten through grade 6. They acquired land and built the tennis court and later completed the gymnasium/ auditorium and the swimming pool complex.
