At ASH, we learn how to build a better world as we become better human beings. For this, we are guided by our ASH Core Values and learn from and for the world. We embrace everyone's voice, our unique differences and achievements, and service to others. In partnership with the local and global community, we gain an appreciation for unique issues, and gradually develop the skills and attitudes to help identify select social and environmental hurdles that require our attention and support.

Our youngest learners do this by connecting their learning to specific initiatives that address a genuine community need. As they grow older, they take on more responsibility, individually or in group, by planning their own service initiatives and working with community partners on a variety of issues. 



The Hague is the Peace and Justice capital of the world and home to international courts, tribunals and other institutions working to make the world more safe, secure and just for everyone. Our student peace team represents ASH at various public peace and justice events in the area.


Through service learning our students learn about community issues, and delve into and develop the required skills for how they can help address them within and outside of school. We value our home in Wassenaar and enjoy a collaborative partnership with our many neighbors. Through our community service program we further help weave and tighten our already strong community fabric.


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.
