The intent of this handbook is to provide students and parents with information regarding the practices, procedures, and policies of the American School of Yaounde.

While school handbooks rarely make for exciting reading, the content of this handbook is the basis for what and how we do things at this school and serve as a foundational document in making the decisions that we do. It is an expectation that all parents will read this handbook thoroughly; students will be made aware of its relevant contents during the first week of school. New families will find that this handbook will provide you with the big picture of the tone and culture of the school, in that what is emphasized is often what is most important.
