High School

 

Principal's Welcome

High school forms the capstone experience of a child’s learning - a place where young people develop their identities in becoming young adults. Using pedagogically sound and research-based best practices, ASB’s commitment is to take students to the thresholds of their own greatness and watch them step to the other side, ready to take on life’s great adventures, heart, mind and spirit.

ASB’s rigorous and relevant educational experience challenges each individual to become his or her very best. This means the classroom is only one part of the learning experience. If you stop to chat with any high school student while walking the halls of ASB, you will hear them talk excitedly about their latest service project, group presentation, Model United Nations debate, athletic competition, extended field trip, musical performance and more.

ASB offers the highest quality multilingual education with most graduates obtaining both the American high school and International Baccalaureate diplomas combined with a rich co-curricular experience. Family and community are deeply valued at ASB, and high school is no different. We emphasize wrap-around services in socio-emotional advisory and language/learning support to ensure every young person is college and career ready, both at home and abroad.

Global learning in the 21st century means preparing for the unknown in a complex ever-changing world, technologically, economically and politically. ASB’s exceptional teaching staff generate student-centered inquiry learning experiences connecting the classroom with the world beyond. We see questions, more than answers, as the source for students developing enduring understandings and generating solutions as future leaders in our international community, empowering them to engage ethically and compassionately.

As you explore ASB online, we believe you will see how truly special our community is. We look forward to honoring and welcoming our new families to the high school and hope you will be among them.
