Board of Trustees

Welcome from the Board of Trustees

American School of Paris - Ms Suzanne Obenshain, President, Board of TrusteesWelcome to the American School of Paris!

If you are new to ASP, I hope you are able to quickly discover the incredible diversity all around you as well as a deep commitment to excellence in education. An additional defining characteristic of ASP is the dedication of staff, faculty, students and parents to welcome newcomers to the community.

An exciting time for ASP

This is a truly exciting time for ASP. We are in the midst of a five-year strategic plan which continues to show many tangible areas of progress as well as a clear road map for continued progress. One especially notable area is the building of the future ASP campus. You will hear much more about this important project throughout the year.

Serving Community Needs

As in many schools, the ASP Board of Trustees is responsible for the long-term viability of the school, financial oversight and governance. We work closely with Head of School Mark Ulfers to ensure that ASP continues to serve the needs of its community and that it fulfills our mission of preparing our students for personal and academic success.

The ASP Board is comprised of trustees including ASP parents and alumni with a cross-section of complimentary skills and experience. We are often looking for new members to be involved on committees, so please be in touch if you would like to know more.

On behalf of the Board, welcome to the ASP community; we look forward to meeting you soon.

All the best,

Suzanne Obenshain
President of the Board of Trustees 2016-17
