Our Leadership Team

Excellence in education is achieved when each student is motivated, happy, and inspired to learn.

On behalf of the board of SHF, including my son Deepak Tummala and management committee of American School Panama, welcome you all to be a part of American School Family.

For those who are not aware of us, the foundation was organized and incorporated in 2007 in California , USA for the purpose of stimulating voluntary private support from alumni, parents, friends, corporations, foundations, and others for its initiatives to improve academic standards and social development programs.

Over the past few years American School has evolved into world class school, with a complete new team of young, enthusiastic teachers, directors, who have adapted to the evolving academic system.

Looking at the year 2020 and 2021 till now, I am proud to say that despite all odds, we have ensured that the academic programs offered by us remained unaffected. I am quite satisfied with the adaptation of our teachers and students from offline to online education. Our online initiative has been a success and in 2022 we will continue to reach new levels of excellence in both academic and non-academic areas.

I am pleased to announce the commencement of admission for 2022 academic session. Please check the details on our website and for more specific details email us on admisiones@as.edu.pa.

It would be unjust to merely mention about the new session without giving insights into the current academic status. I must say that 2020 has been learning year for many students ,teachers and parents getting accustomed to the online learning environment and its challenges. I would like to quote from Max McKeown “All failure is failure to adapt, all success is successful adaptation.”

American School's 2020 experience in adapting to complete virtual learning environment is highly commendable. I am glad to state that American School teachers, and staffs successfully adapted to the changed circumstances due to COVID19 restrictions. Adaptability enforces creativity, and creativity is adaptability ,this made a big difference in our academic offering .

As evident from the testimonials of parents and students , I am proud to state that we have successfully implemented latest tools/techniques of blended learning & flipped learning approaches with excellent results.

Right from the beginning we took a decision to include all subjects into the online study plan, thus we included Music, Art ,Sports and folklore along with other academic subjects.

In 2022, we are tying up with US based academic experts to add more innovative programs / learning tools & techniques to continue our pursuits towards improvement in English,Science, Mathematics and Informatics.

I do understand that online environment has also put more responsibility on parents and would like to assure you all that our student centric approach has been very helpful and will continue to help those students who were finding it difficult to cope up with the online environment.
Stay tuned for more information.

Thank you,

I have been entrusted with the difficult task of running an educational enterprise on a winning path in times of a pandemic, which is difficult, but not impossible. I have accepted the challenge, which is based on professional knowledge in the field of pedagogy and on the experience we will carry it forward.

The degree of satisfaction of the parents of families, to whom we owe ourselves, is measured by the degree of integration to the activities they do with their sons and daughters, always showing their concerns regarding improvement, which is important to achieve changes .

Our work team keeps working hard and persistently for the opening of the next year 2022, praying to God to allow us to have a new year to demonstrate the effectiveness regarding the change policies of the American School company for the benefit of the students. chiricanos.

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X

American School has always been characterized by providing a high-quality comprehensive education with a rigorous academic curriculum to train competent students with character, leadership skills, and good principles.

Despite the difficulties we are currently going through due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued with our full academic curriculum and incorporated a great variety of digital tools to teach our distance learning classes and keep our students motivated during the teaching-learning process, such as: Google Classroom, Zoom, Padlet, Kahoot, Mentimeter, Story Jumper, Genially, among others. It has been a great challenge for all of us, but together (students, parents, faculty and staff) we have overcome it.

As a responsible school committed to the education of our students, we will continue working hard on new digital education tools, strategies, and techniques to improve and enrich the teaching-learning process and thus, keep ensuring a service of excellence for this coming 2022.

“Education is the process in which we discover that learning adds quality to our lives. Learning must be experienced.” – William Glasser
