What our students say...

Brandon, Grade 11

"I came here as a child who had never schooled out his country and hardly ever interacted with foreigners. AAS has contributed a lot to who I am now as a person, thanks to the environment it offers and the people I have met."

Shon, Grade 10

"AAS has given me an important view on the world and its cultures, it taught me that not all people are the same and that all people should be accepted for who they are not where they are from."

Blagovesta, Grade 10

"The lessons at AAS are not concentrated on dry material but each of them also connects to the world we live in, which helps you to understand it better."

What's Been Happening

Urquhart Assembly with Water Ceremony

On Wednesday the school held a special, all school assembly to formally say thank you, goodbye and send all our good wishes to our outgoing School Director Jim Urquhart and his wife Andie who has served both as the Athletics and Activities Director and as a Middle School counsellor. After eight years at AAS, the Urquharts are leaving this summer and the school marked the occasion with a school-wide celebration.
