Director's Welcome

The director of the best international school in Milan, Italy!

“Become More” at the American School of Milan.

As an American school, we value the American ideal of opportunity for all and the belief that if you work hard and dedicate yourself to powerful personal goals, you can achieve success. We support students in all aspects of their lives and make it possible for them to achieve their goals and prepare for whatever the future holds.

As a nonprofit school, guided by a passionate and dedicated Board of Trustees, we know how important it is to a child’s education that every euro is applied to the best programs and environment for our students. Our beautiful campus and modern facilities - the finest in Milan - draws families to our school, but once here, they fall in love with the heart and soul of our wonderful ASM. Family is such a powerful aspect of the Italian culture, and here at ASM it is the sense of family that makes us strong.

If you are looking for a caring, positive and modern educational environment for your child’s education, look no further. Our students are able to choose from the finest universities in the world and are encouraged to find the best fit to support their dreams. Our mission declares that we provide a modern and rigorous education, and we do. This rigor and high expectation for student success is facilitated by our core values of Accountability, Respect and Empowerment. We ARE our values.

Each morning, the enthusiasm of our students expressed upon arrival is a true window to our school. Parents of preschoolers escort their little ones to their warm and welcoming teachers. Middle schoolers stop by their lockers and chat quickly with friends and teachers before heading to class and IB seniors find themselves in school early many days for IB study sessions.

We are proud of our solid, consistent and highly qualified faculty that is committed to preparing our students for the “changing world of tomorrow” – but also, they are known to be sensitive to and aware of the changing world today. We believe and encourage the idea that the only way to make an impact in the lives of our students and their immediate and global environment is through a passionate quest to learn and become caring and responsible world citizens.

Explore our website, but even better, come visit Milan and ASM. We will be delighted to meet you, and to be a part of your child’s learning, growth and passion for excellence. One visit to ASM and you will know that you have found the best school in Milan for your child.

With warm regards,

Maureen O. Madden, Director
