Supporting our Students and School
Philanthropic and volunteer support from our community is crucial in making ASB a truly unique place. Our school benefits greatly from the generous financial and volunteer support of individuals and corporations. Together we aim to provide the best possible education to ASB students in a world-class teaching and learning environment that embodies our mission to empower students to maximize their potential and become truly global citizens. These institutional values inform our pedagogy, foster personal growth, cultivate belonging and encourage a spirit of collaboration in our community.
Building Together Development Program
Connected to the pursuit of ongoing improvement, ASB created Building Together: an exciting initiative to engage our community to improve the educational environment and programs for our students. Families can contribute to Building Together in a variety of ways, both in time and money. Participation in our active Parents Association and support of our athletes on the courts/fields and performers on the stage is as important as monetary donations to the school. Your partnership is essential. ASB is a community of truly like-minded individuals dedicated to supporting learning at every level.
Campus Enhancements in 2020-21
With support from Building Together initiatives, this summer, we could replace the water fountains around campus with new water bottle refilling stations. Each of the fountains provides cold, clean filtered water for our students and teachers, and support our collaborative efforts to reduce waste and create a more sustainable campus.
In addition, we are installing several new outdoor shades for the amphitheater, elementary playground, and outdoor seating area of the cafeteria. These installations will allow our students to spend more time outdoors and help keep social distancing. Other benefits for the shades include extending classrooms beyond the school walls, extended periods of physical activity within a safe environment, and making the school a more pleasant place to learn.
Continuous upgrades and enhancements like these are an important and integral part of being a not-for-profit school, where all revenue from tuition and fees goes to improving facilities, enhancing classroom resources, implementing innovative programs, and recruiting world-class teachers.
