SCHOOL NAME:AMERICAN SCHOOL HONG KONG

http://ashk.edu.hk/


                                 American School Hong Kong (ASHK), a not-for-profit, college preparatory international school located in Tai Po in the New Territories opened in 2016 for students from Kindergarten (age 5) to grade 6.  As part of the school's development plan, one additional grade level will be offered each year until the school reaches the full complement of grades in 2022/23. In 2020/21, the school will provide a secondary school program for students up to grade 10. 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) will be available for grade 11/12 students beginning in 2021/22.  The IB DP is characterized by its intellectual rigor, liberal arts tradition and international flavor. The curriculum promotes critical and analytical thinking.  The IB Diploma is recognized by highly selective post-secondary institutions world-wide as an excellent or “gold standard” credential for admission. 

English is the language of instruction and communication at the school.  The US Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards provide the framework for learning.  Teachers integrate a ‘STEAM’ program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) in the elementary division. 

ASHK is operated by Esol Education, a premium international education organization, with 40 years of expertise in establishing and operating international American schools worldwide.  Currently, 11,000 students attend Esol’s ten schools across three continents. 

Similar to all other Esol schools, ASHK has gained accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), The Middle States Association (MSA), and (candidate status) with the International Baccalaureate (IB).
