Recognizing that our students’ well-being is a cornerstone of their success and happiness during early adolescence, middle school is a critical time for organizing and understanding learning, exploration, personal development and the formation of healthy academic habits. 

With enough flexibility to experiment and tailor their learning, our ASH middle school students are confident and able to pursue their unique interests and learn in a way that is relevant to them. We embrace various types of learning experiences, including classroom learning, project-based learning, experiential learning, field work, and virtual collaboration. 

Each year, our middle school students venture off campus to explore the Netherlands through safe, fun and engaging experiences, which help facilitate personal and interpersonal development in our students. In addition to getting to know our host country better, our students also foster a sense of identity aligned with the ASH core values.

We offer a wide range of co-curricular activities and clubs, as well as team sports. Our Color House system helps to nurture in our students a sense of community and belonging, and to develop leadership skills if they are elected to serve on the house council. It's all part of the #ASHexperience!

  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.
