Middle School Admissions

My name is Mr. Ricardo A. Belgrave and I began my journey at this fine institution as a teacher in 2001. For the past seven years I have been the Middle School Principal and I would like to welcome you to our school’s web page. We like to believe that as an institution we are investing in our global future by providing a quality and well -rounded education for our students.  One of the ways we service our community is by providing an excellent education that includes extracurricular activities, which teach our students the value of giving back to the community and how to be effective leaders who have values and substance.

We prepare our students according to the highest, most rigorous international standards. We have learned that when learning activities are presented in small groups, student engagement and motivation is improved. Differentiated teaching methods have been set as a school-wide best practice; such techniques encourage learners to receive instruction according to their individual needs. Student accommodations and individual educational plans are used to support their students in achieving their learning goals. Also, technology is integrated into the curriculum and offers students engaging learning activities. A typical Middle School classroom has an electronic board and overhead projector ready to display videos, images and websites to support instruction.

Students’ academic and social behavioral needs are supported by a Counseling Office, Special Services and the Character Education Program. Students perform skits and use role-play to target positive behavior. In addition, an anti-bullying program is in place to prevent bullying and negative behaviors.

If this appeals to you as the educational institution to which you would like to entrust your child’s future, please refer to our FAQ (https://amschool.org/about/faq) segment in our “About” tab of our home page for helpful hints. You can contact our secretary to the superintendent’s office, Gina Gómez for further assistance or a possible campus tour. We look forward to hearing from you.

The American School of Tegucigalpa offers students the opportunity to earn a total of three diplomas upon completion of their high school careers: the American School of Tegucigalpa High School diploma, the Honduran Bachillerato, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.  Our rigorous IB program requires our students to stretch academically, meeting higher levels of responsibility, time management and work load.

Our curriculum allows students to conduct research, explore, analyze and create as part of their learning process. Technology is incorporated into the classrooms by providing electronic boards, projectors and computers. We also provide an excellent athletic program which develops our boys and girls into excellent athletes who know how to work as a team giving their all for the benefit of the team, as well as the meaning of good sportsmanship and “fair play”. Many academic extracurricular activities as well as debate clubs give the students invaluable opportunities to participate in national and international events where they successfully represent their school and country.

Some of the qualities that make our institution special are the countless hours our staff and students dedicate to our community and a spirit of service that would ensure that the leaders of tomorrow that are in our classrooms of today, will be people of substance and of character. In addition to this, our accelerated curriculum is designed to educate, challenge, inspire and prepare our students for their higher education goals.
