ASM's mission is to ensure all of our students have the skills, habits of mind, and motivation to become citizens of their world, the future. ASM strives for excellence in all aspects of learning and student performance, from academics to service and from the arts to athletics. ASM students are inquirers, creative problem solvers, and collaborative leaders. They see opportunities where others might see obstacles and limitations.
"Our students may have different nationalities, cultures, and experiences, but they are all part of one school culture and belong to one school community. A school community that values connection, caring, honesty, and respect. No matter where they come from and no matter where they may go, ASM is their home. As we say, 'Once a Lancer, Always a Lancer!'
"It is this sense of belonging that supports learning at every level at ASM. We are proud of our dynamic and comprehensive program and the ongoing professional learning that supports it.
