American School of The Hague (ASH) is an international school located in Wassenaar, the Netherlands. In a safe and welcoming environment, we guide the learning of our students, ranging between 3 to 18 years old, who represent up to 80 nationalities, with 28 percent American and 15 percent Dutch nationals. Here, we learn how to build a better world as we become better human beings. For this, we are guided by our Core Values and learn from and for the world. We embrace everyone's voice, our unique differences and achievements, and service to others.
The ASH story sees the light in the early 1950s and is exponential in nature as we have grown from a handful of students learning together in one classroom to nearly 1,300 students learning across two vibrant campuses.
Our students are the pulse of ASH. They are the school's heart, and they are the school's storytellers. Over the years, thousands of students have walked through our hallways in pursuit of learning and their passions in life.
To further help students develop their passions and open their minds and hearts, professionals and experts from near and far visit ASH to share their knowledge, experience, and insights.
A common thread we so prominently experience here through the subtleties of everyday life is our strong community bond. Combined with our rich history and unique traditions, our community connects through the decades.
At ASH, we believe that we build a better world as we become better human beings, hear and value every voice, keep every promise, and celebrate every achievement. We promote the appreciation of differences, collaboration, and service to others to help our students better understand the world around them, and become contributing citizens in a global society.
