Empowering Students to Learn, Grow, and Succeed.


Thank you for the interest in the American School of Santo Domingo. We are a committed community of professionals, parents and students working together to provide the best educational services available from Nido II to 12th grade. Our school community is very diverse; we strive to graduate global citizens, self-directed learners and able communicators.

Founded in 1982, The American School of Santo Domingo has a longstanding reputation of academic excellence and high standards.  Accredited by the Dominican Ministry of Education and by Cognia, our students graduate with a high school diploma valid in the DR, the USA, 
and internationally.

As Head of School, with 30 years of experience in education, I can tell you that my mission is my greatest passion; I deeply believe in quality and comprehensive education for all students and in creating learning environments that provide a sense of belonging while helping everyone pursue and achieve their goals and dreams. I hope you find the following information useful, and inspiring enough to come meet us in person.

Best regards.
