ASH Shifts All Learning to its Virtual Learning Environment
- 13 March, 2020 -
 
At American School of The Hague, we continue to prioritize our international community’s health and safety. In consideration of the Prime Minister’s advice of March 12, 2020, and in consultation with government offices and health authorities in the Netherlands, we have decided to move our model of learning into our virtual learning environment from Tuesday, March 17 through Monday, April 6, 2020. 
 
As an international school, we align with the virtual learning practices at other international schools around the world: over the years, we have developed the technical skills and infrastructure, and have put curriculum delivery strategies in place to shift all learning into our virtual learning environment if circumstances dictate us to do so. Over the past weeks, we have additionally prepared our teaching staff and students in working and learning in this online environment in order to ensure that we can keep offering quality education to our students.
 
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 30 percent American and 12 percent Dutch nationals. At ASH, 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.

American School of The Hague heeft de gezondheid van haar internationale gemeenschap hoog in het vaandel staan. Op basis van het advies van de Minister President van 12 maart 2020 en in overleg met de betrokken overheidsorganen en gezondheidsinstanties hebben wij besloten om per 17 maart over te schakelen naar onze online leeromgeving voor een initiële duur van 3 weken.
 
Als internationale school hebben we de mogelijkheid om dit te doen, net zoals andere internationale scholen in de wereld. Over de jaren heen hebben we de technische vaardigheden, infrastructuur en lesmethodes ontwikkeld om alle lessen in ons digitaal leerplatform te integreren in het geval van een tijdelijke sluiting van de school.
 
In de afgelopen weken hebben we de leraren en studenten extra voorbereid op het werken en leren in onze online leeromgeving zodat we het hoge niveau van het onderwijs kunnen garanderen.
