ASHK provides a rigorous American and international education program. Our inquiry, STEAM focus, and concept-based approach to teaching and learning promotes the development of critical thinking. Concept-based learning is about big transferable ideas that transcend time, place, and situation. Concepts are a way to organize and make sense of learning. Content focuses primarily on facts while concepts focus on making sense of those facts and the world around us. Through this approach, students are empowered to become independent, self-actualized, critical thinking problem solvers.
