Use of technology in the classroom

Technology is integrated into Kinder 1 to grade 5 curriculum for all subjects.

In the Lower School classroom teachers guide students through technologically-based activities and projects that address standards of the technology curriculum and are connected to topics they are studying in class. Students complete this work in the computer lab or on computers in their classrooms.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The American School of Madrid, founded in 1961, is a private, non-profit, American college-preparatory educational organization offering the traditional U.S. high school diploma, the International Baccalaureate, and a unique Spanish “Programa Oficial”. The school has as its primary responsibility the recognition and development of the intellectual ability of its students. ASM also recognizes its responsibility to attend to the emotional, moral, physical, and social needs of its students. The principal objective of ASM is to provide an elementary and secondary education program in Madrid consistent with that of the best American international schools in the United States and abroad. It makes possible the acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior that will prepare its students to be critical and concerned members of a changing society, aware of their responsibilities to themselves, to others, and to future generations.

Teaching approach of the school

While ASM’s academic program is rigorous, its staffing model, use of technology as a learning tool, and teaching practices allow its teachers to effectively provide both enrichment and support for the school's diverse student body. Through guided interactions with their peers and specially designed units of study, ASM students begin to understand and appreciate the cultural richness of the world. The best educational programs are achieved when home and school are supportive of each other and communicate frequently. It is through this partnership that ASM students are prepared to meet the demands of the 21st Century.
