The American School of Madrid (ASM), founded in 1961, is an independent, coeducational international school for children in grades pre-K through 12. It provides an education to over 900 students from the United States, Spain, and other countries.
The American School of Madrid bases its curriculum in the education system of the United States of America, with tuition predominantly in English.
Lower School and Middle School learning programmes are based around the core subjects of the American education system, with both native Spanish and Spanish as a Foreign Language (SFL) courses, which meet requirements of the Spanish national education authority. A list of subjects on offer at Lower School can be found here, and subjects at Middle School can be found here.
The Upper School Learning Program allows students to study either for a U.S. High School Diploma or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme – or both at the same time. Students can also sit exams for individual IB courses without obtaining a full Diploma. The courses are designed to meet the requirements for entrance to American colleges and universities and other institutions of higher learning in Spain, Europe and around the world. For a full list of subjects and programmes on offer, visit the Upper School curriculum page.
The school has strong IB results with the average total points scored at 35 in the 2019-20 academic year, compared against a global average of 29.35.
The ASM campus is located 12 km west of the centre of Madrid, in Pozuelo de Alarcon near Aravaca. It is a 12 minute drive from the city centre.
Annual tuition fees start at 13,403 for Grade 1 and rise to 19,865 for the final year of tuition. There is a 10% reduction for a third child from the same family and a 20% reduction for additional children for both tuition and the one-time enrollment fee.
