With teachers who are experts in their fields, ASHK aims to deliver an inspiring, well-rounded education, fostering students to be scholars and critical thinkers while developing strong personal efficacy and an ambitious work ethic. ASHK offers:
High Academic Standards
Following the US Common Core standards and adopting an inquiry-based approach to learning, ASHK’s enriched American curriculum will include a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) focus, and offer students a strong Chinese language program. External exams such as MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing will allow the school to benchmark student progress and achievement against world averages.
Like all Esol Education schools, ASHK’s holistic approach to education aims to develop each student intellectually, emotionally, and socially. Students will build cohesive worldviews, will make the right choices, and will develop their imagination.
All-Round Personal Development
Integrating sports, arts, drama, and music within the curriculum, as well as offering a diverse array of after school activities, ASHK will provide students opportunities to develop multi-faceted skills, promoting health, fitness, creative abilities and talents. Participation in national and international competitions, opportunities for public speaking, debating and involvement in Model United Nations (MUN), World Scholars Cup, and Mathematics Olympiad help facilitate student development.
Successful Learning Communities
With strong core values based on mutual respect, care for the individual, self-discipline, child protection, and a focus on responsibility and positive relationships, ASHK will safeguard, guide and support students by working closely with parents to ensure a strong school-home relationship.
