Research and Development

  “Sustained Innovation for relevant learning.”


Thriving in an accelerating change environment has required ASB to take smart actions, based on quality information with heightened speed, while delivering everyday on ASB’s mission. Transforming ASB for the future while executing and delivering on our mission every day requires us to evolve, refine, re-iterate our superstruct to continue to act on quality information with heightened speed.

The R&D Department studies, prototypes, researches, and scales new teaching and learning approaches, practices, and systems that advance relevant learning in an accelerating change environment.

More About R&D
ASB's Dual Operating System
ASB has two operating systems - a traditional teaching and learning operating system that operates reliably and efficiently to execute and deliver on our mission every day, and research and development operating system that resembles a network. R&D at ASB focuses on rapid innovation that ensures sustained innovation for relevant learning.

R&D: An Agile Change Engine
R&D works by creating and facilitating guiding coalitions of interested motivated people throughout ASB to explore, study, prototype, research, and scale new teaching and learning approaches, practices and systems.

Engaging in R&D Work
We engage faculty and parents with the drive to learn deeply, think differently and leverage the conditions of autonomy, mastery and relatedness to others in order to transform teaching and learning.

The R&D Department researches and develops approaches, practices, and systems that:

  • are driven by global trends
  • have a strong relevance to our school mission and core values
