When ACST was founded 61 years ago, it began as a cooperative school—started by a few parents who wanted to work together to create a community of learning for their children. Although ACST has evolved extensively since those early years, the idea of parent partnership is still a prevailing part of who we are and what we do. We encourage parents to get involved in a variety of ways—helping in classrooms, serving on committees, volunteering for events, or sharing their expertise.
Our school community is wide ranging and represents dozens of nationalities, cultures, and languages. Our community includes families from embassies and diplomatic missions as well as families from non-governmental organizations, international businesses, and others. These organizations are valued partners of ACST and provide opportunities to our school community.
The Tunisian members of our community are one of the foundations of our school. These long-term families are our historical memory and they help the newcomers to ACST to integrate into, to understand, and to appreciate Tunisian culture.
As you can see, the community at ACST has much to offer, and stands to gain much from each member's involvement and contribution.
At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.Jane D. Hull
