Robin S. Appleby P ’24
Head of School

I am overjoyed to have joined a community that cares passionately about the School and the educational experiences we provide to the students in our care.

The pages of our Annual Report are filled with the evidence of this support. Our families’ volunteerism and philanthropy make a difference in the lives of our students, faculty and staff each and every day. Together, we create the stories of student learning, collaboration, empathy and celebration that will form memories to last a lifetime.

I look forward to the year ahead as I learn the narrative of ASL by listening to this community’s many stories and perspectives. Thank you for inviting me to join you on the ASL journey, and for your steadfast commitment to our School.

This Annual Report recognizes the time and resources our community generously gave to the School in 2016-17.

The lists are impressive, as are the ways in which our community helps to enrich the learning experience at ASL. As always, the School seeks to provide an exhaustive and varied education to our students, encouraging them to foster a global approach to their studies—in the classroom, on the playground, in London and beyond.

We cannot do this without your unerring support as we endeavor to provide the margin of excellence that makes an ASL education extraordinary in all respects. For championing our school and committing so much in so many ways, I offer my sincere gratitude and appreciation.
