Dear families and students of the Lower School,
Welcome to the American School of Brasilia. My name is Toni Boush and I serve as the Lower School Principal at EAB. I will be starting my second year here at EAB and I must tell you, "I feel honored to be the Principal of such a great school!" Darik Williams will be the Assistant Principal and this too, is his first year in this role. We are thrilled to be working together again to serve you and your children. It warms our hearts to be a part of a team that appreciates teaching and learning. We welcome all of you to this special place for your children. Your children will be loved, respected and nourished with a rich program for learning at EAB.
Our school community of teachers, families and staff are committed to developing the whole child during their time at the American School of Brasilia. Our Mission and our student learning results guide our programs. We are proud to know that we are developing students that are inquisitive in life, principled in character, and bold in vision. We hope that you will see a sense of intellectual curiosity, creativity, socialization and playfulness in your children as a result of being a member of the Lower School. At EAB, your children will be engaged in their learning, principled in their actions, collaborative and contribute positively to their learning community. They will be involved as readers and writers of different genres, scientists and mathematicians. Their learning will be displayed in various ways throughout the school, on their classroom websites and in their classrooms.
We strive to provide a supportive environment that is committed to developing the uniqueness of every child. Focusing on what is best for our learners and fostering an environment that encourages and embraces the social and emotional welfare of our students is an important part of EAB. We want your children to be learners, therefore we want your children to encounter new and different learning situations, experience challenges, make new friends and become inspirational learners. We value a strong sense of community and we invite you to be a part of your child's learning.
Welcome to our school and please always be in contact with any questions or concerns. Please visit us so that you can see what makes this community a place that allows and encourages your child to shine in mind, body and spirit.
