MISSION

The Asian School will endeavor to

  • educate our children to have active, creative minds with an attitude of enquiry, have a sense of understanding and compassion for others and instil the courage to act on this conviction
  • develop the overall personality of the child; spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical
  • recognize the individuality of the child; that each child is unique, creative, needs to succeed and be respected
  • inculcate values in our children by providing value based education so that the child is advantageously positioned to act with integrity, thoughtfulness and humane qualities
  • develop global citizens capable of succeeding in a world with ever widening horizons

LEAD, KINDLY LIGHT

Lead, Kindly Light,
Amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark,
And I am far from home;
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet;
I do not ask to see, the distant scene;
One step enough for me.
I was not e-ver thus,
Nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose, and see my path;
But now lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day,
And, spite of fears, pride ruled my will.
Remember not past years!
Lead, Kindly Light,
Amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!

Today, in a world where society is increasingly fragmented and polarized, The Asian School remains a community where honesty and integrity matter, humour and hard work are equally important values, and where the process of education is as important as the grade of achievement. We provide a unique educational experience for children from kindergarten to high-school by devoting all of our efforts to our strong mission, philosophy, and culture on a daily basis. As you will realize from going through this website, our goal is to provide our diverse student body with exceptional education, instilling in young people a love of learning, the ability to think independently, and the confidence to pursue their dreams and goals. Our students, as twenty first century learners, are constantly encouraged to become good global citizens with a strong commitment to their fellow beings as well as their environment. Central to our efforts to build a dynamic community is our dedicated faculty. Intensely devoted to the success of their students, our faculty strives to embrace different roles such as those of teachers, coaches, advisors, mentors and friends. In each aspect of school life, they endeavour to challenge and inspire students to reach new levels of enquiry and understanding. As you look through the following pages, it is easy to envision your child in this environment, where we emphasize the important qualities of integrity, honesty, creativity, imagination, perseverance, respect, and self-discipline. Plato said, “The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.” It is a matter of great pride for me that The Asian School students are empowered to connect with their environment, to appreciate their heritage, to transform themselves, and ultimately, the world.

Founder Chairman

The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. -Dennis Waitley

With great pride, I invite one and all to surf The Asian School website set up so that you obtain a gainful insight into the goings on at the school. The value based structure and organized education aims at developing a sound character in the student with a keen sense of fairness, caring and integrity. What more? A complement of highly qualified and experienced staff strives to enhance the learning environment.

Children do not care how much you know until they know how much you care. The best possible learning environment is provided to them. Every activity aims at drawing out the best in the child. The plethora of activities laid out to mould students to perfection will speak volumes for our effort.

On the playgrounds of The Asian School where all forms of sports activities take place, children learn to accept defeat and celebrate victory. Sportsmanship develops tolerance and co-operation to live harmoniously as a citizen. Thus we empower all students to succeed in their world.
