Director's Welcome

On behalf of the American School of Bilbao, I am proud to welcome you to our school’s website and invite you to explore within its pages the richness of our learning programs and the opportunities offered to our students. 

ASB, now entering its 50th year of service to our community, delivering a complete program of learning that focuses on nurturing essential skills needed for life in the 21st Century. Since 1967, ASB has provided an excellent learning environment that promotes the school’s mission and makes ASB a leading academic institution in Bizkaia. Our dedicated and talented international faculty is committed to educating and inspiring each child to become a thoughtful, independent, and well-rounded individual. While working hand-in-hand with our community of involved parents to promote superior academic achievement and a sense of global citizenship, we proudly celebrate our Basque roots and international diversity.

We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and have achieved outstanding results over the past 2 years with a 94% pass rate.  ASB proudly sends its graduates on their collegiate journey to prestigious universities across USA and Europe. In addition, we will connect onto the learning exemplified in the IBDP by continuing our preparation and delivery of the IB’s Primary Years Program to our students in the Lower School. These two IB programs will permit us to be better aligned to our mission and beliefs, as well as to our professional practice and the commitment of excellence we have made to our students. 

Do take time to discover our website but also come see for yourself the exciting learning that is taking place at the American School of Bilbao.
