Highly Able Programme at ACS Cobham


Author: Karen Herschleb

Highly Able Programme Programme Coordinator, Middle School and High School Divisions, ACS Cobham

ACS Cobham’s Highly Able Programme was created in 2014 to enhance provision for students who require an additional level of challenge due to their outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in one or more areas, enabling them to reach their full potential.

A bit about me …

There are two full time Highly Able Programme Coordinators; Emily Gordon and I. I am originally from Girdwood, Alaska and I began my teaching career in Seattle, since then I’ve taught all over the world – in Mexico City, Lisbon, Portugal and the UK.

I joined ACS Cobham in 2013 and in December 2015, I finished my Masters in Educational Leadership, which I studied at University College of London. I am deeply passionate about supporting students’ learning and encouraging them to pursue their interests.
