We celebrate each student’s unique path to discover and become the person we are meant to be. Student well-being is a cornerstone of success and happiness, and in our elementary school we care about our students’ growth as learners and as individuals. 

Our elementary school comprises the Early Childhood Center (ECC), a purpose-built facility for our youngest learners in preschool through grade 1, just a short walk from our main campus, and the Upper Elementary school for grades 2 through 4 on our main campus.

We focus on harnessing natural curiosity, mastering foundational learning skills, questioning the world around us and building trusting relationships. Our students learn through inquiry and play, and our well-resourced learning spaces offer abundant opportunities to develop these skills and prompt collaboration.

As a community of learners, we place a high value on growth mindsets, trying new and different things and stepping out of our comfort zones. We understand that making mistakes is an important part of learning. Our preschool through grade 4 program offers core academic subjects and provides a strong foundation in social awareness. We round things out with classes in music, art, technology, Dutch, and physical education. 

  THE ASH MISSION

We build a better world as we become better human beings, hear and value every voice, keep every promise, and celebrate every achievement. 

THE ASH VISION

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.
