Our holistic approach to education places emphasis on providing opportunities to support our students' social, emotional, and physical needs along with their academic needs."
"Our state of the art school facilities are designed with the student learning and the IB and Montessori programs in mind, and allow for a multi faceted and enriched learning environment. We provide outdoor and indoor spaces, specifically designed to meet the young child’s gross motor development needs, and our program includes regularly scheduled enrichment activities that may include French, music, art, or dance, each taught by teachers specifically trained in these disciplines."
"The involvement from parents in various activities. We welcome parents to have the opportunity to celebrate all academic milestones in their children's education.

Atiya Husain , Head of School
Thank you for your interest in our school.
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the Head of School at Ashwood Glen.
I am in my 22nd year of education, I have worked as a classroom teacher, from grades 4-8 and have been in administration for many years. I have worked in 4 different countries and quite a few schools. My diverse experience has taught me that children are pretty much the same wherever you are in the world. They have a zest for learning and bring joy to all around them.
The school’s mission statement of striving for excellence, learning from each other, and trying to make a difference both locally and globally is what we enforce. We work towards academic success for each and every student. We work together with both the parents and students to ensure that everyone’s needs are met. Students produce ideas that can be incorporated either in the school, or with a local/national charity.
I have an open door policy and I encourage students to advocate for themselves. They are more than welcome to come and discuss any concerns and issues that they may have. I am always happy to listen to feedback, and will act on much of the information provided.
It is important that everyone in the building; parents, students, teachers, and administrators, feel that they are in a safe environment and belong here. I am proud to be a part of the Ashwood Glen family.
