Thank you for your interest in the American School of Ulaanbaatar (ASU) where learning takes place in an atmosphere that is structured, warm and nurturing.. It is my sincere pleasure to be able to tell you a little about our school and hope you find it as exciting a place as we do. We have designed our web site to answer most of your questions. I hope you will explore this site—whether you’re a student looking up an assignment or checking out pictures from a recent school play, a parent interested in what happened in assembly or what was served for lunch, an ASU fan wondering how your favorite team is faring, an educator exploring teaching opportunities or a prospective family researching our curriculum.
Here at ASU, we pride ourselves on providing an academic environment where students can grow to become well-rounded individuals. The American School of Ulaanbaatar has a deep commitment to the creation of a caring and respectful community. We see our school as a place where children and adults alike are treated with respect, where conflict resolution is integrated into the curriculum, where disagreements are resolved through class meetings and discussion, and where children enjoy an emotionally healthy and respectful school environment. These principles are the foundation of many of our school’s policies and practices. When families enter ASU, they make a commitment to provide their children with the finest educational experience available. Once here, they find the special relationships our students share with teachers, the administration, and fellow students enrich the ASU academic and extra-curricular experience.
Our staff is a highly qualified, talented, and loving group of adults dedicated to your child’s academic achievement and character development. We keep our class sizes small enough to ensure that each child gets his or her needs met and large enough to promote the learning of good social skills and responsibilities. Our educational program enhances the development of each child’s strengths and talents and ensuring each child’s self-worth and respect for others. When you walk in the front door, I think you will be able to feel what makes the American School of Ulaanbaatar such a special place. You will see happy children and caring teachers, working together to meet their academic goals. It’s what education should be.
