The American School of Paris, established in 1946, is a coeducational, independent day school for students from ages 3–18. Home to a vibrant community of over 750 students representing over 65 countries, ASP students achieve their personal and academic best with innovative and internationally-recognized programs for learners of all ages.
ASP is accredited by the Council of International Schools and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Students learn an American curriculum (including IB and AP options) with a high priority on real-world, experience-based learning. While classes are delivered in English, all students in Grades K3–12 receive daily language instruction in French for beginners through Francophone students.
Students in Grades K3–1 participate in a play-based, Outdoor Learning program both on and off campus in the neighboring Parc de Saint-Cloud. All students use our dedicated science and technology spaces, with older children taking on independent projects in the Lower School Maker Space, and the Middle/Upper School Tech Shops, including application development, design, 3D printing, and coding projects.
Students flourish artistically at ASP, and can take advantage of a theater-style Performing Arts Center, a Black Box theater, and studio spaces for music recording, production, and film. ASP offers full band, orchestra, and choir options as both curricular and extra-curricular classes. After-school sports are offered from Grades K4–12, with an American varsity and junior varsity athletics program (part of the International School Sports Tournament consortium), available to students in Grades 9–12. From athletics and the arts to robotics and STEM, ASP students regularly compete at the international level.
The Upper School is the academic home of 350 students who are guided by a team of college counselors and academic advisors as they select from 30 IB courses, 12+ AP classes, and American high school courses. 90% of Upper School students participate in either the AP or IB program; 30% of students are candidates for the IB diploma each year, with over 40% of these students qualifying for the IB Bilingual Diploma.
In 2021, ASP students scored an average of 4 points higher on the IB exams than world averages, with 38% of ASP students scoring above 40 points. ASP students scored an average of .7 points higher on AP exams, and 87% earned above a 3 on their exams, with 34% of ASP students earning at least one 5 (perfect score). Students go on to attend prestigious universities across the USA, Canada, the UK, Europe, and Asia.
