ASA’s Elementary School proudly offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. With a focus on inquiry and experiential learning, students are encouraged to explore the world around them and to learn by doing. Classroom spaces and learning experiences are carefully structured by our teachers, learning assistants, and administrators, facilitating a transdisciplinary approach to learning that allows students to apply knowledge and skills from a variety of academic areas.

We are dedicated to the balanced development of all children in the Elementary School, with a belief that in addition to fostering strong academic achievement, we must also provide strong opportunities for positive social and emotional development. We strive daily to offer an active, engaging, and stimulating learning environment for all students in order to help them become successful, productive, and positive members of their local and global communities.
