School Philosophy

At the American School of Kosova (ASK),we are committed to helping all students realize their full potential by supporting their development of a positive self-concept and enthusiasm for learning. We believe every human being can make a difference in this world when there is respect for self, respect for others, and respect for our environment. We believe students nurtured in an environment with friendly and firm communication develop responsibility for their own behavior, learning and a concern for others. We also believe that continual school improvement is optimized when collaboration is encouraged between staff, students, and parents.
