Our Mission

Our Mission and Guiding Principles

The American School of Puerto Vallarta strives to be a multicultural learning community that nurtures the values and abilities which inspire in each of us the confidence to further our education, pursue our dreams, and serve as compassionate, responsible citizens.

Students are better prepared for the future when they have a multicultural perspective and are able to communicate effectively in more than one language.

Success in school requires the combined best effort of students, teachers, and parents.

Quality education focuses on the whole individual: academic, creative, social, physical, and emotional.

Opportunities for community service and a focus on values enhance learning, leadership skills, a global perspective, and social responsibility.
