The ASCS Experience
The American School of Creative Science provides a rich extra-curricular program that has a focus on the all-round development of students and nurturing their interests and talents. Activities include both individual pursuits and team-building activities for students.
Leadership is a trait that is nurtured at all levels and starts with students learning to embody our ASCS Learner Dispositions and taking responsibility for their own learning.
Leadership in pre-KG & KG
Our educators work closely with our students facilitating self-directed play and work to foster our students’ unique interests allowing for independent pursuits. Leadership is further nurtured through the roles and responsibilities assigned in the class.
Our students in Grades 1-3 take on leadership roles through our Playground Buddy Council. Overseen by our school social worker, our playground buddies work to promote positive relationships and develop students’ social skills.
Students have many opportunities to develop their leadership skills at the American School of Creative Science and beyond. Student Council members and the Innovation Team of students welcome new members to our community, take part in sustainability initiatives and share their knowledge through focus group sessions, workshops, etc.
Council members also lead the development of our school magazine “Blur News”.
Students selected for the Student Council are assigned roles and responsibilities which develop their sense of responsibility and confidence.
Ambassadors help to welcome new students into Middle School while developing their own leadership skills. Throughout the year the Ambassadors lead other Middle School students in community building activities as well as transitional activities for the incoming Grade 6 classes as well as being buddied up with new students entering ASCS throughout the year to help ensure a smooth transition.
Student extracurricular activities as well as field trips organized are designed to develop personal interests but also to remember their duties towards the community with a focus of service to others.
