The American School of Valencia (Colegio Hispano-Norteamericano), founded in 1980, is a bilingual, bicultural, parent-owned, co-educational day school, situated in a private estate some 20 kms north of Valencia and overlooking the Mediterranean. The Parents' Association, to which all parents belong, elects the Board of Governors. The school is an accredited member of the Middle States Association, and it is also recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

The school follows an American college-preparatory curriculum which combines at higher grade levels with the Spanish curriculum to prepare students for the Spanish university entrance exam. English is the principal language of instruction, with Spanish language skills practised for a minimum of one hour daily. A second foreign language is taught from seventh grade. School is open from September to June. The faculty are fully trained teachers from USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Spain.

Students at the American School of Valencia are mainly Spanish nationals. They are admitted in Pre-Kindergarten and develop English language fluency before beginning elementary studies. Admission to other grades is open to English speakers, subject to testing and satisfactory school report from the previous school.

The campus of the American School of Valencia comprises 32,000 square metres. Two modern purpose-built structures house the pre-school, elementary, and high school. There are computer labs, four science labs, an art room, a music room, and a senior and junior library. A new swimming pool and a multi-purpose building for arts and sports are projected.

Sports offered include basketball, soccer and volleyball.
