Looking Back At 20 Years At American School

It's September 14, and tomorrow the person who regularly writes this blog will celebrate 20 years of work at the American School.  Today is the perfect occasion to look back at how the American School has evolved over the years and express gratitude to several groups of people.  Back in 1998, the American School was strictly a distance education high school.  We didn't add an accredited middle school program until 2016.  Moreover, 20 years ago we only offered high school correspondence courses that students could take to earn a high school diploma at home.  Now we offer online high school courses and an online high school diploma program.  We've always offered an independent study high school program, but we also offer individual courses to anyone who may wish to take them for enrichment.  One thing that hasn't changed over the years is our commitment to our students.  We strive to offer accredited courses at an affordable cost and provide the best possible service.  It's the vision our founder, R.T. Miller, had when he and his friends founded the American School in Boston in 1897.  That philosophy was passed down and instilled in other School leaders over the years, including those in charge in 1998 and those leading the School today.  There are too many great memories and too many great relationships and friendships to mention in one blog, but a deep sense of gratitude exists for all of them, as well as for the students, parents and school officials who have made the American School their school of choice.  All of us are grateful for you and look forward to serving you in the next 20 years and beyond.
