Welcome from the Board of Trustees

Yvonne Lalonde - board of trustees, American School of Paris

Welcome to the American School of Paris!

Bienvenue à l’American School of Paris! Nous sommes heureux de vous accueillir dans notre école.

We are glad you have chosen the American School of Paris for your child’s new academic home. Welcome!

As you arrive, you will notice that our students and teachers clearly enjoy being at school and share a remarkable love of learning. We are a diverse and welcoming community of over 50 nationalities, and newcomers - adults and children alike - are warmly embraced. We value every member of our school community and celebrate each other’s achievements and unique qualities.

Supporting Student Success

ASP is a results-oriented school. Our dedicated faculty are both highly trained and forward thinking, infusing solid teaching methods with new ideas to create a powerful learning connection. Small class sizes, a rigorous curriculum, varied and enriching extracurriculars, and purpose-designed 21st century learning facilities round out the ASP learning environment and help empower students to thrive and achieve personal and academic success.

Also A Place for Parents

ASP is a special place for parents as well, and we encourage you to become involved in school life. Our vibrant Parent Faculty Association teams with the ASP Advancement Office, bringing the school community together for enriching programs, social gatherings, and opportunities to support ASP. Please peruse our website to learn more.

In Service to our School

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

The ASP Board includes parents of students in all three school divisions, a former Parent Faculty Association president, and alumni. We are a diverse group with a cross-section of complementary skills and professional experiences, united by a deep appreciation of the positive, lifelong impact an ASP education, both in and out of the classroom, has on young people. We are often looking for new members to be involved on committees, so please reach out if you would like to know more.

On behalf of the Board, we look forward to welcoming you in person to the ASP community. It is sure to be a great year, and we are so pleased that you are here to be part of it.
