Welcome to American School of The Hague (ASH). Enjoy browsing our site and contact our Admissions team to schedule a campus tour and visit our vibrant community, at the heart of which are the students we serve. We promise to do our utmost to provide challenges and opportunities to help your student grow in knowledge and ability, and also in respect, responsibility, integrity, empathy, and as strong communicators - our core values that support all we do at the school.
At ASH, we pride ourselves on offering a varied, comprehensive educational program that challenges students to excel in their learning and grow as creative, committed people of character. Our programs in athletics, performing arts, speech and debate, and our service clubs help students of all ages engage with the world outside of school as well. Here, we have something for everyone to get involved in, and we offer a comprehensive transition program to foster that involvement among newly arrived students and their parents.
Our school's home in Wassenaar, a quiet village on the outskirts of Leiden and The Hague, provides an ideal background for learning and raising a family. Our proximity to quiet beaches, scenic dunes, and innumerable picturesque waterways provides ample chances for study, exploration, and adventure. Within short bike rides, you can be in The Hague, the center of government in the country and known as the International City of Peace and Justice, housing several international agencies, courts, and tribunals and a strong example of the inclusive crossroads of Europe that is the Netherlands. Head in the other direction and the bustling university town of Leiden offers multiple cultural and educational activities, in letters and sciences alike. You would be hard-pressed to find a better location if you find yourself moving to the Netherlands.
We look forward to welcoming you to our learning community.
With warm regards,
Dr. Courtney Lowe, Ed.D.
