According to Michael L. Smith, Director of American School of Valencia, prospective teachers meet the specific needs of the ASV as an international school: “They come from North America but have experience all over the world. Some of them already understand what is to work in Europe, in an international school and the majority of them have masters degree which is something that I place a great emphasis on. A better educated staff provides a better education.”

Please join us in welcoming them to our ASV school community.
