Director’s Welcome

“Excellence, Integrity, Inclusivity”

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to The American School of Kinshasa web site. For over fifty years TASOK has provided a quality academic international education for students from kindergarten through grade 12. Founded in 1961, TASOK has been based on our current 42 acres of forest and garden since 1966. Our vision is visible in our commitment to possibilities and partnerships, on campus and outside our perimeter, here in the heart of Africa. With just over 300 students we are a small school where every member of the community, students, families, faculty, support staff, makes a difference. Every voice counts. Our outreach into the greater Kinshasa community is permanent and robust.

Our web site concept is based on our conviction that to see us in action and in our setting through photos is the best way for you to understand our identity. Your initial exploration is mainly visual, photos of all aspects of our school. In depth text information is instantly available through links.

I invite you to explore teaching and learning at TASOK. Your questions are important. Don’t hesitate to contact us at info@tasok.net if you have a particular need. You will always receive a response.

Yours in Education,
Simon Gillespie
TASOK Director
