American School of Antananarivo

ASA has a positive and supportive culture, where teachers work together to improve student learning. There has been significant change in recent years, including the move to a beautiful new campus, an influx of expat teachers, new administrators, and curriculum progress including the introduction of the IBDP. The faculty have worked hard to ensure only positive impact on students, and to help each other move forward with the changes. The new campus provides innovative teaching and learning opportunities, which we are working together to develop. There is of course room for improvement - we are looking for ways to celebrate successes, opportunities to tell stories of accomplishment and collaboration, and are developing our shared language. Madagascar has its challenges, and the kind of teachers who come here tend to be resilient, adventurous, and see the positive. If this describes you, we'd love you to join us!
