High School at ABSS will be a new adventure. After 65 years of educating students from Preschool to 9th grade, we are opening a new level; our High School program consists of three school years, from 10th to 12th grade. ABSS will graduate students with three different degrees; High School (English skills diploma), Certificate in Agriculture (supported by EAP Zamorano), and Bilingual International Diploma (supported by the Honduran Secretary of Education).
Our curriculum will include research in every subject as well as learning by doing activities. Honduran and Texas standards will be applied as part of our Accreditation to achieve high quality factors. As part of Zamorano Agricultural University, ABSS has the opportunity to develop a Certificate in Agriculture in which students will be prepared to develop community projects. Teachers come from different backgrounds, national and international; their experience enriches our learning community.
ABSS is located in a safe and environmentally friendly campus; open spaces, labs, sports fields, are part of our process of learning by doing.

An engaging way to start each day, build a strong sense of community, and set children up for success socially and academically.
Classrooms are divided into groups to work in centers. A learning center is a self-contained section of the classroom in which students are able to engage in independent and self-directed learning activities. Centers allow easy access to a variety of learning materials in an engaging, interesting and productive manner.
Mental breaks designed to help students stay focused. Brain breaks provide processing time for students to solidify their learning, re-energize the brain and take a break by moving. Typically a break is a quick physical activity that will help students refocus.
LEARNING BY DOING
Under the umbrella of EAP Zamorano, ABSS also applies this philosophy as learning strategy. The learning by doing academic component makes us a unique educational institution. We work on developing leadership, skills and abilities of our students with activities that reinforce their knowledge.
Annually, Widener and Purdue University students visit ABSS to develop different programs to reinforce kids learning. We also have other international guests.
Students receive differentiated learning by different teachers depending their needs.
