Our mission

The American School in London empowers each student to thrive as a lifelong learner and courageous global citizen by fostering intellect, creativity, inclusivity and character. 

As an independent day school, providing an exceptional American education to an international student body in the heart of London, we join with our host country in promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. As citizens of a vibrant democracy, we fulfill our obligations to ourselves and to others. In our classrooms, innovation and individuality are celebrated, and outstanding academic success is applauded. Students thrive amid the joy of authentic learning experiences. High expectations are clearly communicated and students take ownership of their words and actions. We value diversity of thought and experience and we treat others the way we expect to be treated. Within our school community of more than 65 nationalities and numerous faiths, we express mutual respect and tolerance for those with different beliefs. Committed to creating courageous global citizens, we inspire students to engage with others across lines of difference in a changing world.
