High School Curriculum

Our school community works collaboratively to encourage and support the healthy development of our students, their social-emotional well-being, and their academic ability. Our faculty and staff in the High School put students at the center of every discussion. Students themselves are expected to play an important role in determining the paths that they will forge during their time in the High School. While evolving their sense of independence, academic acumen, and sense of self, students practice and internalize ASL’s core values—respect, responsibility, kindness, integrity and the courage to act.

The High School Principal is a member of the School’s senior leadership team, answering directly to the Head of School and responsible for all activities that affect the education and the lives of students in the High School.

Leadership of the High School faculty and staff, numbering roughly 90 faculty and staff members, is a central responsibility for the Principal. The High School leadership team consists of the Assistant Principal, the Director of Student Life, the Director of Academic Advising and College Counseling, and the Director of Athletics.
