Grades 4–8

The Junior School distinguishes itself by providing a challenging, broad-based program, which promotes critical thinking and creativity. Learning beyond the borders of the classroom aims to enable every student to develop in the areas of academics, athletics, arts, co-curriculars, community, bilingualism, and leadership. Clear standards and guidelines in work, sport, dress, and behaviour help to achieve these goals.

Grades 9–12

The Senior School experience teaches students to think, speak and write clearly, critically, and creatively. Students explore challenging curriculum that inspires them to look beyond themselves towards the greater good. Classroom work is complemented by learning on the playing field, in the arts, in community service, and through experiences within our international community.

International Baccalaureate

Ashbury has more than 40 years as an IB World School, offering a high-quality education with fully-accredited IB teachers. Students in the two-year Diploma Programme choose from a wide range of IB subjects and levels and have the opportunity to develop artistic, cultural, athletic, service, and leadership skills.
