It’s about The American School in London’s entire school community. It’s about the way our students, teachers, parents, staff and friends come together to create an extended, yet focused “family.” Together, we form a dynamic caring community that steers the individual progress of each student.
Like any community, people come and go. Surprisingly, given that we’re the American School in London, people come from all over the world and they leave for all corners of the globe. More than 70 nationalities are represented here, creating an exciting mix of personalities, attitudes and cultures.
Our students are well traveled with a worldly outlook, and through its mission, the School empowers them to thrive as lifelong learners and courageous global citizens by fostering intellect, creativity, inclusivity and character. In fact, despite their exotic itineraries, they often comment that being here is “more fun than vacation.” Our warm, welcoming spirit helps. Whether we’re a comparatively brief stop on a student’s travels or a long-term destination, we succeed in creating a stable, supportive environment in which students flourish.
I attended the ASL many years ago when I was 16 years old. I absolutely loved it, and made amazing friends. Back in the USA, I had chemistry class as a Jr. in high school (which I hated) but at the ASL, my instructor actually explained it clearly and I understood it for the first time! I would recommend this school today to anyone who needs an American style of education for their child while they are living in London on an extended stay.
