About ASFM

Message from our Superintendent

Dr. Michael Adams

The vision for the American School Foundation of Monterrey (ASFM) is the driving force behind our improvement initiatives, our school-wide programs, our community activities, and our strategic direction for the future. This vision, along with our mission, play a crucial role in supporting our 2,400 students from grades Nursery through 12, our overall staff of 450 professionals and paraprofessionals, and our 1,000+ parent community as we work together to engage and enable students to achieve their individual potential in citizenship, academics, athletics, and the arts.
As the Superintendent of this amazing school and wonderful community, I am energized and invigorated by the thought of what awaits us all. Our desire and goal is to prepare all students through an innovative, inclusive, diverse, and intensive program of quality and excellence. Whether you are new to ASFM or have been a part of our community for some time, please accept my personal invitation to join our “family” as we prepare our students and our entire community for a wonderfully exciting future.
In learning,
Dr. Michael W. Adams

We believe in Open Minds, Caring Hearts, and Global Leadership as essentials for a healthy and successful life.

Strategic Innovation Plan

Four strategic focus areas were identified by more then 200 ASFM stakeholders during interactive focus group sessions. These focus areas have now become the basis of our Strategic Plan and provide us with the foundation of the work that will take place over the next five years. Four Strategic Planning committees were formed and they have developed concrete action plans and key performance indicators for each focus area.

We are positive that this new Strategic Innovation Plan will allow ASFM to further meet the needs of our current and future population and ensure that our students are prepared for an exciting and dynamic future.


Strategic Areas:

  1. Innovative Quality Teaching and Learning
  2. Balance of Academics, Arts, and Athletics
  3. Diversity and Inclusion
  4. Values
