The School's basic principles are based on democracy and our institutional values: respect, responsibility, solidarity, inner strength and honesty. ASQ is highly recognized as educating the leaders of Ecuador, with an impressive list of graduates who have excelled both locally and internationally.
The School, which is a non-profit foundation, is governed by a 22 member Board, elected among the parent community and within that number are 4 teacher representatives elected by their peers.

The first IB Program was introduced in 1990. We have both a national program of studies and an international program.
