I want to thank ASM, it is a fantastic school and has provided excellent quality of education, despite the pandemic situation. I think ASM should be taken as example for schools on how to manage best a crisis like in the last two years!

Preparing Students for Quarantine
Responding to a pandemic also means preparing our students for change. We have witnessed great resilience in our students and have encouraged them to stay flexible in order to make sense of the world that keeps changing all around them. In the Elementary School we had the opportunity to prepare our students by explaining what Quarantine means, how they would continue learning and what materials they need. We developed a series of videos, taking inspiration from the well known Sesame Street productions and turning them into ‘ASM Street’. Both short videos include our famous ASM puppets, along with our students and were filmed and edited by our students! Check out the videos here:Street Part 1 & Street Part 2
ASM Alumnus, Class of 2007
ASM Theatre and Film Students were lucky enough to spend an hour on Zoom with Alberto. After growing up in Ethiopia then spending his high school years at ASM, he was on the path to becoming a professional soccer player. In his successful career, Alberto has attended the New York Film Academy and become a prominent director who splits his time between New York and Los Angeles. Alberto stars in the Grey's Anatomy spin-off "Station 19!
Our cafeteria staff creates home cooked meals for our students, faculty and staff every single day. Piera, the head chef, has been here since 1979. When she started at ASM, there were less than 200 students. Speed ahead 40 years to 840 students. To feed hundreds of students every day is a daunting task. If you ask any of our students or staff members they will tell you that all food at ASM is prepared and served with love. Piera and her indomptable team of cooks know every student by name, and if the case, their dietary needs. Piera says she can’t imagine her life without ASM and its students. We know we can’t imagine ASM without her!
