Our goal is that ASM students are prepared with the courage and confidence to use their knowledge, skills, and understandings in collaboration with others to make a difference in their communities and in the world.


The American School of Madrid, a private, non-profit educational organization has as its primary responsibility the recognition and development of the intellectual ability of its students. 

The School also recognizes its responsibility to attend to the emotional, moral, physical, and social needs of its students. The American School of Madrid provides both quality and continuity in American elementary and college-preparatory education.
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.

Strategic Vision

ASM's Strategic Plan addresses each of eight interrelated elements that together, support and sustain our vision of student learning for the future.

Strategic planning at ASM is a comprehensive process that includes the active participation of the Administration, the faculty and staff, and the Board. The main focus of this planning is, of course, the students, and their learning and development.
 There are three main components to ASM’s strategic planning:  People, Program, and Plant.
