“Mon enfant est le meilleur ambassadeur de l'école. Il aime son école et est content et fier d'y aller.”

- AvH Parent

“All teachers, no matter what subjects, have always shown passion and devotion about their respective fields, which is often what adds an inspiring flavor to the way they teach.”

- AvH Parent

“Unlike other private schools, the atmosphere is progressive, child-centered, and open.”

- AvH Parent

“My children are always happy to go to school, teachers are both friendly and open as well as professional. The school is a safe and welcoming environment with many resources that enable individual learning.”

- AvH Parent

“Was ich an der AvH schätze ist, dass an diesem Ort selbständiges Denken vermittelt wird und Kinder zu ganzheitlichen Personen erwachsen.”

- AvH Parent

“Ich bin hier – at my my school – I’m so happy”

- pré-maternelle

“AvH has played an integral role in sparking my intellectual curiosity. For that alone, I owe the school, my teachers, and my schoolmates a debt of gratitude.”

- Maher Bitar | Class of 2001
