Message from our Superintendent

We would like to Welcome Mr. George Stewart as our new Superintendent! Learn more about George by reading the latest article published by ISS (Leadership Spotlight blog). 

Culture is the bedrock of highly functioning organizations (regardless of sector). In tumultuous periods when the world accelerates and shifts unexpectedly, a strong institutional culture can be the bedrock that guides decision making and helps everyone feel comfortable and at home. My roadmap to help schools maintain a thriving culture rests on three pillars: Cultivating Empathy, Embracing Diversity, and Fostering Innovation. Read more at Leadership Spotlight blog.

Our challenge is making sure we always share the best, most generous part of ourselves on the outside–everybody will be happier.

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


Mission Statement

The American School Foundation of Monterrey (ASFM) fosters open minds, caring hearts, and global leadership within the entire school community. ASFM Serves a diverse population and prepares all students through an innovative, inclusive and intensive program focused on engaging and enabling students to achieve their individual potential in citizenship academics, athletics, and the arts.

Identity Statement

ASFM is a private, secular, non-profit, Nursery through 12th grade, college-preparatory, U.S.-accredited, co-educational institution, which offers both a Mexican and U.S. High School Diploma that serves the local and international population.

Equity and Diversity Statement

All community members agree to support ASFM's initiative to create an open, safe and caring school environment based on respect for all members of the school community and all human beings.

The community agrees to support and respect the values of equity and diversity and avoid the detrimental effects of any form of discrimination, be it based on race, religion, gender, sexuality, physical characteristics, abilities, talents, socioeconomic status, culture, or language.


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
