Dear parents, families and friends,
On behalf of the entire middle and high school faculty, welcome to The American School! The 2016-2017 school year promises to be an exciting year full of rigor, exploration and creativity. I look forward to partnering with you as we guide our students in reaching their full potential.
To returning families; welcome back to another great school year. We are excited to continue to build on your child’s learning here at TAS.
To new families; we are beyond thrilled to work with you in educating your child. Encourage your children to dive in at TAS! Experience, not only academics, but extra-curricular activities as well. TAS offers a multitude of exploratory programs including: basketball, volleyball, soccer, badminton, Drama Club, Student Council, Girl Scouts, Model UN, cooking classes, Kung Fu, dance and more! When a child builds a connection to a school outside of the classroom, he or she is more likely to excel inside the classroom.
This school year, students will have opportunities to improve their English proficiency with an expanded English as a Second Language program. We also offer computer courses in our Mac and PC labs, which prepare students as 21st century learners. Our chemistry and biology labs give students experiences that are sure the help them succeed at the college level.
From sports and social emotional support with our full time counselor to Week Without Walls and original theater productions, The American School has it all. I am so excited to watch this school year unfold. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at any time. My door is always open!
Middle-High Vice Principal
