  • At AHS, we put community at the centre of all experiences

    We are a broadly diverse, inclusive, and caring community. We welcome, embrace, and serve the community with empathy and mutual respect. At AHS, every child has a voice, every learner is given the opportunity to succeed, and every student has the opportunity to discover and hone individual skills and interests. We meaningfully connect with our community of parents, inviting them to lend their expertise and become partners in their children’s education.
  • At AHS, we bring the very best educational thought and practice to both General and Judaic Studies

    Honouring our rich academic tradition of excellence and high expectations, our learner-centred, inquiry-driven model develops confidence along with academic and social-emotional competence. Our innovative educational program and highly effective and caring faculty support the development of a Maker Mindset, while providing students with strong foundational literacy and numeracy skills. Our program also fosters the development of timeless skills grounded in collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking, which will allow students to succeed and thrive.
  • At AHS, we bring Jewish learning to life

    Through a traditional but non-prescriptive approach, students become knowledgeable in Jewish heritage, history, and texts. Prayer and Jewish practice are a means of connecting spiritually, communally, and historically. Students gain a deep affinity for the State of Israel and acquire proven proficiency in the Hebrew language. Through rich and joyful experiences, students develop deep Jewish identities, preparing them to lead meaningful and inspired Jewish lives.
