Welcome to the Elementary School at American School of the Hague.
As you learn about us, I hope you will discover that our actions and beliefs make our school a special place. Whether in the classroom, cafeteria or on the playground, our students work hard to meet challenges and goals placed before them. We strive daily to be a school with high expectations, coupled with never-ending gifts of care, concern and patience.
The Elementary School (from Preschool, age 3 to Grade 4, age 9-10), builds a solid foundation of learning skills and experience of school life. Our curriculum includes strong phonetic-based reading, exploration of our world through social studies, hands-on experiential science, and problem solving math. The atmosphere is nurturing and supportive to meet the intellectual, social, physical and emotional needs of all of our students. Classes are taught with developmentally appropriate expectations in mind, along with an emphasis on social skills, which are presented at each level.
Our educational journey keeps one eye on the future and one on the present, to fill each year with opportunities to explore, dream, create and reflect. Students join this learning expedition to develop life-long habits of learning as well as respect, understanding and compassion.
We have a dynamic and passionate group of professionals who truly enrich our school with their diverse talents and experiences. We also appreciate the important role that parents have in the lives of their children, and encourage your help and participation. There are many opportunities for you to become involved in school life, where your contributions of time, energy and presence are critical components to our success as a school.
If ASH becomes your choice, and we hope it will, you will be joining a program that has a tradition of excellence. Therefore, come with us to explore, develop, investigate, create, imagine, question, organize, play, and most of all, have a great time learning!
