10-Year Master Plan
In our rapidly changing world, strategic planning ensures that ASM provides our student body, both now and in the future, with the skills, attitudes, and understandings they will need to be successful.
In the fall of 2016, ASM began to develop a comprehensive, campus-wide facilities plan that aims, over ten years, to establish ASM as one of the most forward-looking, future-oriented, schools in the world. Since the construction of the Pozuelo campus in the mid-1960s, ASM has been committed to the development and maintenance of the educational facility to support extraordinary achievement. As one of our alumni and a current parent commented recently on an online platform:
“It would be very easy to sit back and be complacent with the already extraordinary facilities ASM has, but the appetite to continuously improve and be ahead of change is part of ASM’s DNA.” Cristina Callejon
In January of 2018, the ASM Board of Trustees approved the 10-year Master Plan for Facilities. The ASM Master Plan for Facilities was developed through an interactive, community-wide process in partnership with Flansburg Architects, a leading firm in Boston selected by the board after considering other such firms. The Flansburg team worked with parents, staff, students, and administration in a series of on-site workshops over four months. The final project was based on input and insights from all the groups. In particular, a set of six, guiding principles for the project, the so-called Six Cs (Connection, Community, Core Program, Construction, Conservation, and Cohesion) emerged from the many conversations.
The Master Plan approved by the Board focuses on:
- Increased space for learning
- Developmentally appropriate spaces
- Increased and consolidated green space for learning
Phase 1 of the plan, a new Multipurpose Field and Sports Annex was completed during the fall of 2018 and we are now ready to begin Phase 2 of the 10-year Master Plan.
Sharing Our Enthusiasm
Community awareness and involvement is a key part of the ASM’s Development Plan. As educators, we feel it is essential that our community is an active partner in shaping and preparing our school for the future. We want the community to share our enthusiasm and excitement.
