Welcome to AFNORTH International School – Elementary Section! Our focus is on meeting the academic and developmental needs of all students. Our school is dedicated to helping our students become efficient problem solvers, decision makers, and dynamic thinkers. We provide an environment that encourages exploration and discovery to help children learn about the world in which they live. We strive to help children grow into global citizens who value diversity and promote a culture of respect. We are very proud of the educational atmosphere which prevails throughout AFNORTH – one that is safe, orderly, clean, and student-centered.
Parents are always welcome in the school and I encourage you to become an active volunteer in our school. We seek your assistance in helping us to improve the quality and effectiveness of the educational experiences, opportunities, and school environment that we offer to students.
Please take a moment and join the Parent/Teacher Organization. The PTO works diligently to help provide the best educational experience for all the students. Your involvement will enhance and enrich the lives of the children we serve. Our students are successful because of a caring and dedicated staff that develops and fosters positive relationships with the students and their families. Together, we can make a difference!
Again, we welcome you to AFNORTH International School. We look forward to sharing highly successful and enjoyable experiences with you throughout the school year. If you have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to call your child’s teacher, the guidance counselor, or me. When parents and teachers work together, children benefit greatly!
Looking forward to a great school year!
Principal of AFNORTH Elementary US-Section
