It Takes a Village to Raise a Child

and at ABA, we have a whole community! Our expert educators, coaches, mentors, staff, and advisors band together to work toward one common goal: preparing, empowering, and inspiring each and every student who steps through the ABA gate. Our community members serve as positive role models for students, advocating for their success and guiding them throughout the educational process.

Not only do all our staff have Bachelor’s degrees and teaching qualifications, but over 55% of ABA faculty have also attained Master’s degrees, and many more are working towards one.  ABA faculty are committed to growing professionally while designing curriculum, activities, school procedures and programs to best build our whole school.

The 151 academic and specialist staff members at ABA represent over 20 different nationalities. In addition, our teachers bring the best teaching experience and expertise from around the world, naturally enriching your child’s everyday exposure to different cultures and preparing them for a global future.
