Today’s Anniversary: Sally Ride

It's June 18, and on this date in 1983, Sally Ride became the first American woman in space.  At one time, the idea of a female astronaut would have seemed far-fetched, but Sally Ride proved otherwise.  Now it's not uncommon to see females as astronauts, scientists or any number of professions.  Those of us at the American School encourage our students to follow their dreams whatever those dreams might be.  We offer a wide variety of accredited high school courses in a number of different subject areas.  In particular, we offer electives in business, career and technical education, fine arts and world languages to complement core subject areas such as English, math, science and social studies.  Take them toward an online high school diploma for adults or children, a correspondence high school diploma for adults or children, or simply for enrichment.  Students in grades 6-8 can do similar things after they enroll in our accredited middle school program.  Blast off toward the education and career of your dreams by enrolling with us today!
