"I am currently in eleventh grade and have been part of the American School of Barcelona since P.K.3. As I go back to those times I remember the school very differently. We used to only have one building, which compared to now seemed like a much smaller school. The truth is that ASB has not only grown in students but also in quality of infrastructure, teachers, extracurricular programs and internationality. Since I was a child, school has always felt like a second home. The relationships you build with students and teachers are more personal, enhancing the learning experience positively. We have always been taught in a very applied and hands-on methodology which is something I have learnt to appreciate as I compare it with a local course I took this summer. Extracurricular activities are also a very important component for students here. I am the president of the Rotary Interact group in school as well as a student representative for Student Council, part of the Model United Nations and tennis team. Extracurricular and community service is highly valued, something that I feel very grateful for. For me ASB has opened the door to an empowering, open-minded and international learning experience that will help me find a way for my future."
