Board of Trustees

From its beginnings in 1953 as a parent-driven project to educate the children of American diplomats, to the large, diverse and accredited K-12 IB institution we know today, ASW is the center of a vibrant community of expats and locals from our wonderful host country.

ASW’s Board of Trustees is comprised of parents who work to honor the School’s more than 65-year legacy, strengthen the academic excellence for which it is known, and set the strategic vision and direction for its future success. To accomplish this, the Board works in partnership with the Director and his team, guiding their efforts through policy formulation and adherence, as well as long-term strategic planning.The ASW Board of Trustees is the governing body of the school, responsible for:

  • Defining policies and standards

  • Shaping strategy and facilitating long-term planning

  • Sound financial management

  • Hiring and supporting the Director

The Board of Trustees is composed of twelve (12) members: two (2) appointed by the US Ambassador; five (5) members selected and appointed by the existing Board; and, four (4) members of the school community elected by ASW parents. Each elected member serves for a 2-year term, while the term of office for appointed members is no more than three (3) years. The ASW Director is an ex-officio member of the Board.

Board meetings are open to the ASW school community.
