Founder Chairman's Message
Today, in a world where society is increasingly fragmented and polarized, The Asian School remains a community where honesty and integrity matter, humour and hard work are equally important values, and where the process of education is as important as the grade of achievement. We provide a unique educational experience for children from kindergarten to high-school by devoting all of our efforts to our strong mission, philosophy, and culture on a daily basis. As you will realize from going through this website, our goal is to provide our diverse student body with exceptional education, instilling in young people a love of learning, the ability to think independently, and the confidence to pursue their dreams and goals. Our students, as twenty first century learners, are constantly encouraged to become good global citizens with a strong commitment to their fellow beings as well as their environment. Central to our efforts to build a dynamic community is our dedicated faculty. Intensely devoted to the success of their students, our faculty strives to embrace different roles such as those of teachers, coaches, advisors, mentors and friends. In each aspect of school life, they endeavour to challenge and inspire students to reach new levels of enquiry and understanding. As you look through the following pages, it is easy to envision your child in this environment, where we emphasize the important qualities of integrity, honesty, creativity, imagination, perseverance, respect, and self-discipline. Plato said, “The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.” It is a matter of great pride for me that The Asian School students are empowered to connect with their environment, to appreciate their heritage, to transform themselves, and ultimately, the world.
