Welcome to the American School of Quito.  We are proud of our long tradition of innovating at the Vanguard of Education in Ecuador. As a community, we value providing our students with experiences that will help them fulfill their individual potential through academically rigorous learning experiences and our extensive extracurricular programs. 

Since 1940, the American School of Quito has served the local and expatriate community by combining the best aspects of Ecuadorian, American, and international education.
