After spending 7 years at ASM, I can say that I very much have enjoyed my time here. When I first arrived in 6th grade, I found that the environment was extremely welcoming. Moving internationally can be very stressful and my move to Madrid occurred in the middle of the school year. However, the combined efforts of the staff and students helped to make me feel settled in and on track in a short amount of time. I also have found the environment extremely supportive in other regards. Through starting several clubs to voicing any complaints or issues, I have found that the administration has always had my back and done their best to accomadate me to the best of their abilities. In regards to academics, I feel that ASM has definitely been an asset to me. I have had countless college admin tell me how lucky I am to have had access to the IB program through ASM, as it is known to make sure a student is 100% college ready. Before I entered the IB, however, I had time to enjoy the wonderful teachers and courses ASM has employed for middle and upper schoolers. Every grade I felt challenged, but in a way that I felt served to motivate me to learn as much as possible and be the best student I could be. I also noticed that whenever I needed help, I had access to teachers and afterschool help sessions which always did the trick. I also very much appreciate ASM's commitment to modernity. They are constantly working to improve courses, teaching styles, and even the buildings which leads to a very unique and exciting scholastic experience. I know it will be very sad to say farewell to ASM after all these long years and great experiences. I can not wait to see where this school goes next!

The American School of Madrid is a mirage of a good school, rather than a welcoming and safe learning environment. Although at first giving the impression of a modern, clean and effiecient school, the multi million dollar facilities don’t make up for the poor education that students receive. For my first year in high school at ASM, 80% of my teachers were incredibly demotivating, and provided little to no positive learning experiences. In class, many would simply avoid questions, or show visual frustration if they acknowledged them. As well as this, there is little to no coordination between teachers surrounding work loads; I would often spend hours per night doing monotonous, often pointless homework assignments, or leftover class work because of bad planning on the teachers part. Some teachers seemed complete unfit to teach their assigned subjects, at times making offensive, borderline xenophobic remarks. As well as this, the school has a notorious reputation among students as being terrible at dealing with ‘controversies’ and ‘drama.’ The school often employs ineffective or disproportionate punishment to solve situations. I am happy to have recently moved schools; my mood, my work quality and general health has improved drastically. If the school does not listen to the opinions of the students, the future seems quite dark for the lancers.
