For students in our Upper School AFS offers small school intimacy combined with a broad landscape of opportunity. Through an extraordinary range of activities and choices, we encourage students to participate on many levels and engage fully in an exciting four-year journey of self discovery and expression.
We prepare students outstandingly for college and success in the contemporary world, and we develop in them also the skills, capabilities and values they will need to lead fulfilling lives of purpose and meaning.
Our faculty nurture open, trusting relationships with students and foster an atmosphere where stimulating intellectual discourse fills classrooms and hallways and assumptions are challenged daily. Students leave AFS expecting to be engaged and to play an active role in their lives and their communities. They graduate knowing how to meet deadlines and produce sophisticated work, how to have meaningful relationships and how to take full advantage of the resources around them.
