American International School in London United Kingdom

American School in London

The American School in London is the oldest American school in the London area and remains the only non-profit, independent American curriculum school in England. The School is organized into three school divisions, the Lower School (kindergarten 1-grade 4), the Middle School (grades 5-8) and the High School (grades 9-12), ensuring developmental and age-appropriate settings for students. An extensive sports, drama, music and arts program is offered in addition to a full range of academic classes, including 16 Advanced Placement courses. The American School in London culture emphasizes the intellectual and moral growth of students. Students absorb the values of the school - an appreciation for diversity, a commitment to excellence, intellectual self-reliance and an eagerness to assume responsibility. Experiential learning opportunities - learning by doing - are integrated throughout the curriculum, creating an environment where students are encouraged to take educational risks. The outstanding ASL faculty is closely involved with students, not only in the classroom, but also as coaches, advisors, mentors and friends. They work to foster an atmosphere of true learning that encourages students to engage in rigorous intellectual activity and independent thought.

With a student body representing over 50 nationalities, the American School in London is strongly committed to bringing an international and multi-cultural perspective into all aspects of school life. It is also recognized that ASL is a cultural and community center for expatriates in London and the school works to help families make the transition to life in London with discussion groups, social gatherings and advice on housing. A strong partnership between school and family provides an environment of openness, responsiveness and communication - an environment that places the child's well-being at the center.

The American School in London occupies a modern, purpose-built complex - including a theater, gymnasiums, computer labs, libraries, and art studios - in St John's Wood, a residential area northwest of Regent's Park. The school is convenient to public transportation and also operates a door-to-door bus service. Admission is based on previous school records, teacher recommendations and standardized testing - all of which are considered by the admissions committee.
