My kids attended elementary, middle and high school at AOSR. AOSR offers a rigorous academic curriculum, after school activities, and team sports just to name a few. They are always looking to improve and stay current with the world. Your child will learn to be a leader, innovator and global citizen at AOSR. They also have a unique sense of community building which allows for not just students but all families to gather and partake in fellowship. This is the best school my children have ever attended.

AOSR is our family’s second home since 2008 when my son entered in Grade 1. Since the very first moment when we entered for the first time into the school premises for we entered for the Admission procedure, we had a positive and comfortable feeling that has never abandoned us over those 12 years. Many things have changed into the school Community since then, my son has graduated last year, my daughter is currently attending Grade 10, two Head of School have changed, Principals have changed, new teachers have joined the school and others have left, new students and families have joined the school and others have moved, the school Community has changed and any single person we have met keeps a special place in our memory . Despite changes, the school has never lost its core strengths: support and attention to each single student and to all members of the school Community, focus on academic and personal growth, communication with parents, involvement and participation of families in school life, always with a positive attitude and with a smile! In the second semester 2020, over the months of lockdown, AOSR Community has shown more than ever commitment to its mission and core values, students have received the same level of support, care and attention and even more than they normally get in school days, positive attitude and support have been there for them in every moment of that difficult time. I feel lucky and blessed to have given my children the opportunity to attend AOSR, they are prepared to meet new academic and personal challenges and to commit themselves to always do their best. My children have had the opportunity to participate in several school activities, after school activities, Varsity sports, Honor societies, MUN, GIN and I personally have participated in several activities that involve parents, Mayfair, our fantastic annual fair to mention the best one. AOSR has accompanied my children in the important years of growth and development and has provided all of us with experiences that will stay with us forever. We will never forget our time at AOSR, it will remain among our best memories ever!
