A special welcome goes to the new students at DAS; we trust that you will find a uniquely welcoming, supportive and caring learning environment.


You will receive a package that includes a ‘Student Handbook’ that is intended to help you find your way in the new path at the ADP. This Handbook includes a lot of information that answers many of your questions.

We encourage you to use this Handbook as a reference in the ADP at all times.

The new ADP has many features that are intended to help you develop both general and specialized knowledge in areas that are of interest to you. In every grade level of the four grade levels of the ADP, all students will have the opportunity to choose one elective course from a pool of elective courses. Please make sure to make use of this to option and enrich your intellectual capacities and skills. Furthermore you will start working on you Senior Project from grade 11 over a period of two years. This represents a unique opportunity for all of you to choose and work on a topic of your own interest and study this topic in rigorous depth, and thus developing many life-long learning skills.
