Discover the American School of Paris

An Exceptional Place of Learning with an International Perspective

American School of Paris, Head of School, Mark Ulfers

Welcome to the American School of Paris and our community from around the world! As you navigate through our website, you will get to know us, our mission and the character of our school and see how we prepare our young people for a fulfilling life of personal and academic excellence.

We are the first American school with an international community in Europe, established in 1946. Ours is a rigorous pursuit of personal and academic excellence, balanced by developing skills of global citizenship and service, innovative programs and compassion toward all. We take these ideas seriously and with a full measure of enthusiasm too.

You will feel the energy for learning and a unique sense of welcome the minute you step within our school– all the more special because our students come from around the world.

Paris is, for many, the heart of art, culture and ideas, and ASP has the good fortune to be in the midst of countless opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. Victor Hugo was right, “To study in Paris is to be born in Paris.” So much to gain together at ASP.

Our academic results consistently place us among the top international schools in the world, while our sport, music, drama and other activities are all of the highest quality. I hope that you will visit us to meet our faculty and students; this website can only give a glimpse of life at the school. We look forward to welcoming you to ASP.
