ASHK strives to have a diverse community where diversity is celebrated and utilized as a learning tool. An annual International Day will be held, where students and parents dress in their countries national dress, perform national dances or songs, and provide food from their country for the school community to sample. A diverse school makes students more open-minded and instills in students the core values of respect for others, and tolerance of other cultures and religions. The diverse school environment serves ASHK’s Mission of making all students global citizens.
