We build a better world as we become better human beings, hear and value every voice, keep every promise, and celebrate every achievement.
We are determined to create a school where everyone is confident and able to take control of their own learning, and the world is our classroom.
We keep our minds and our doors open: We break down the silos and perception of hierarchy to try out fresh ideas.
We make learning that matters: We apply our learning now and in the future.
We are a real community: We make the most of our diversity in everything we do.
We trust people to do great work: We find ways to tap into our community’s talents and ingenuity.
We build sustainability into all we do: We prototype ideas and grow those that make the world a better place.
The ASH Strategic Plan
The ASH strategic plan charts our course toward our vision. To prepare our students for a world characterized by shifting paradigms and constant change, we must be confident and able to take control of our own learning; and we must be ready to adapt quickly by learning new skills and unlearning old practices that are no longer useful or effective. We nurture this confidence and agility at any age stage in our students' educational journey at ASH.
In the 2019-20 school year, we invited the entire ASH community to participate in a reflection on where we are as a school and where we would like to go through reflection on our strengths, opportunities for growth, and our combined aspirations. In parallel, we considered the future of the work force and the anticipated needs to meet emerging challenges.
Our 4 Strategic Ambitions capture the priorities we identified for our work to help us grow toward our vision.
Our Core Values
We are committed to building a better world as we become better human beings. Our mission to hear and value every voice extends to our entire community in order to maintain a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment that is also safe, sensitive, encouraging, and knowledgeable, and offers equal opportunity to all members of the ASH community.
